Frosk Goes After Henry Cavill

You know the moment at the end of a horror movie where you think the monster is gone, but then he emerges from the pit once again (more elegantly put by Randy Meeks)? That’s G4’s Frosk, who refuses to take a hint. Now that she not only got herself fired but helped destroy G4 in its entirety, she’s dishing out hot takes on social media. Yesterday, she went after Henry Cavill, who’s the talk of the town at the moment now that he’s left The Witcher and returned to the big screen as Superman. Pretty much everyone is happy about this, which is to someone like Frosk as sunlight is to a vampire, so she decided to take Cavill down a peg:

The “questionable things around metoo” come from comments Cavill made to GQ Australia (thanks to Bounding Into Comics for the background):

“It’s important to also retain the good things, which were a quality of the past, and get rid of the bad things.

There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.

It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something’. So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked’. But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen?

Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No’. It’s like, ‘OK, cool’. But then there’s the, ‘Oh why’d you give up?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?’”

Now, people like Frosk and the MeToo generals will demand we pretend not to understand exactly what Cavill is talking about, but let’s be real; we get it. The mating dance is a complex tango, rife with signals and body language and eye movements and playing coy. These things are verboten now, considered no better than Harvey Weinstein’s litany of crimes or Bill Cosby drugging and raping women for decades. It’s a very mechanical “yes/no” with no room for personality or fun. That doesn’t mean people misread signals or cross lines; it happens all the time, even to those who are usually pretty good at flirting. But declaring the baby be thrown out with the bathwater is not the solution, and Cavill is scared for the same reason men in the workplace are scared of interacting with women: one misinterpreted word or gesture, and your life is over. (Not that anyone would suggest the motives of the movement’s most vociferous activists have been anything but noble.)

The other point Frosk makes is that Cavill dated a 19-year-old girl when he was 33, which she thinks is creepy. Yeah, sure; the woman can vote and serve on a jury, but she isn’t mature enough to date Superman. It also doesn’t matter that the woman has never made allegations against Cavill. Frosk thinks it’s creepy, and as she makes clear in a follow-up tweet, you’re creepy for thinking consenting adults can date each other.

As you’d expect, Frosk’s initial tweet has been ratioed into oblivion, but she probably knew that would happen. Keeping herself in the conversation – especially on the correct side of the woke divide – is a signal to potential employers that she’s a worthwhile pickup despite burning G4 to the ground. Or it could be her acting out in frustration because Henry Cavill doesn’t have a Garth Algar fetish; the world will never know.

That being said, she’s right about The Witcher.

That picture is horrendous. Thought it was Pete Davidson in a wig. No lie. Not even sure what pronouns to use. Scary. Those tweets make no sense to me at all. Would think if any woman had a chance to date him, they would take it, due to the status. Dictating to others who they can date and love now? Ironic.

    She’s stirring up trouble to remain relevant. It’s almost like a job application for her. “Look how offputtingly woke I am.”
