Ahh my point is it was the opposite of SJW-ized, as the character in fact was a parody of SJW instead of a promotion of it.
I don't think she was a parody. Which frankly is a separate criticism of the last 2 SW movies (Solo and Last Jedi) where any serious moment is undercut with a joke.
What makes you think she wasn't? The droids have always been comic relief as well as having awesome moments. This one's schtick was "droid rights" and it was played for laughs almost the entire way.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Does that sound like a description of a parody character? It doesn't to me.

It sounds like a description that ignores the on-screen presentation. Clinically accurate but devoid of any context that would indicate the narrative role of the character. Many of the other descriptions are similarly sanitized.

If that was the problem with the movie I could look past it, but it was just terrible movie with some SJW stuff.

Book Accusing Israel of Sparing Palestinian Lives ‘In Order To Control Them’ Wins Women’s Studies Award

A Rutgers University professor who accused Israeli forces of deliberately sparing the lives of Palestinians in order to debilitate them has been awarded by the National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA).

Jasbir Puar, an associate professor of women’s and gender studies, co-won the NWSA’s 2018 Alison Piepmeier Book Prize for her work The Right to Maim: Debility, Capacity, Disability.

Published by in November 2017 by Duke University Press — which has come under scrutiny for its editorial advisors’ ties to the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel — the book posits that the “Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have shown a demonstrable pattern over decades of sparing life, of shooting to maim rather than to kill.”

Yet it contends that this “purportedly humanitarian practice of sparing death by shooting to maim” is not rooted in a desire to minimize fatalities, but rather seeks to maintain “Palestinian populations as perpetually debilitated, and yet alive, in order to control them.”

The NWSA award’s review committee called The Right to Maim a “major milestone book,” which argues “that debilitation and the state production of disability are biopolitical projects both useful and productive for states under Neoliberal capitalism.”

When my roommate watched "Starship Troopers" he enjoyed it as a straight up action film.

It’s ok when the 1% denounces the 50%. Because they aren’t seditious hicks.
