True about the Leia part, I suppose I meant more that Leia was planning on finding a new base and was probably aware of them being close to Crait in the first place (Since they weren't pulled out of Hyperspace, it may have been the original destination after all.)
But nothing in the movie indicates she knew, and that sneaking off to Crait was her plan, true enough

The real thing that is killing this country is close mindedness and the inability to see things from another perspective. So you are welcome to your opinion, even though it is ignorant and misogynistic. Oh and I am a man by the way and no I'm not gay.
You don't say HOW it is ignorant or misogynistic though which is a form of intolerance by the way not all men and never always feel intimidated by strong women.. Here is some truth, men will always be stronger in strength than women, that's just biology and fact..

Well, if you look at certain muscle parts, yes. Other muscle parts, rather no.

Sometimes showing strong women is done right and sometimes it isn't.

People like to point out how Rey was able to use the force with little to no training, but forget that Anakin was using the force at nine years old to pod race, and he didn't even know he was using the force. Or that Leia did what she did in the second film, despite her being the daughter of Darth Vader, and Luke could of helped her along at sometime during the break between ROTJ and TFA.

Anakin was using the force subcontiously. It wasn't active usage. To actively use the force like Rey does with zero training is the issue.

Hell I jad no issues with Rey having the force vision, or being mentally resistant to Kylo. That is very subtle use of the force. Or traits as Qui-Gon said in Phantom Menace about Anakin.

But using the force to pull, or doing a Jedi mind trick with no training. I'm calling bull****.

It is good, tovarishch sampolit, that you found This thread and initiated enforcement of correction on perpetraitors of crime. Silence is sign of banishment to camps of labour for enemy of thought-regime.

It is imperative that labour to ensure correctionality of thought continues. Anti-regime thoughts disguised in form of ícivil discussioní are wolf in sheep clothing tool of menshevik and fat cat corporate slave. This is illumination of necessesity of fighting dissident. By employment of tool of beaureaucracy and silent coercion, enemy of people will not employ devious modus of ícivil discussioní against interest of thought Regime. Enemy will be halted at any cost.

Eeeeeeeeehmmm, sure... first of all I am not Russian (the -rus in Ylliarus is actually more coincidental than intended) but okay, the confusion is understandable.

Secondly, I have no idea what you're trying to say XD
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!
