Daily Discussion with BQB – Should There Be a Female James Bond?

I’d like to start out by being close-minded and say…NO!!!

This happens every once in awhile.  Whenever they are in the market for a new James Bond, every British person who wants the role starts doing interviews to float the idea that they wouldn’t mind being James Bond.

A whole bunch of male Brits have put themselves out there…but Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones did an interview saying she wouldn’t mind being “Jane Bond.”  Gillian Anderson (Is she even British? I’ll have to look it up) said the same.

Ladies, look.  More power to you but these films are an outlet for me and many dudes to fantasize that a world exists where men are allowed to be men, that in our minds we are James Bond and that we could drive around in fast, expensive cars, live rich, extravagant lifestyles, and be so studly that we seduce women into giving up international secrets.

We know women can seduce men into giving up any info.  There’s no challenge there. That Bond gets all these women to do his bidding is like the ultimate fantasy. Never happens in real life so let us dream.

And besides…Bond’s women have names like “Pussy Galore.” What would Jane Bond’s boyfriend be? “Gotta Bigdonger?”

Women…stop.  Just stop. We have to draw the line somewhere. I forbid this.

What say you 3.5 readers?

  1. I think Bond should always be a dude. It’s the mythology of the series. I want Tom Hiddleston to be the next Bond – so I can fantasize about giving up international secrets to him! 😀

    • I feel like Daniel Craig still has mileage left in him. They just went to all the trouble of setting up his world with a new M, Q and Moneypenny. I guess they can keep all that and just change Bonds though.

      It seems like every new Bond incarnation they do one great movie and then a bunch of forgettable ones. Pierce Brosnan – Goldeneye, Daniel Craig – Skyfall

      • I hear you. I’d love to see D Craig stay on. Oddly, it’s my husband that wants to see a female Bond – Emily Blunt, Gillian Anderson… Whatever… I want to fantasize the usual way…

      • They could make a movie about a female spy and call it whatever they want. They just don’t have to invent a world where there’s no James Bond and replace him with Jane Bond.

        The formula doesn’t work at all. We already know women can talk men into doing anything. That Bond can talk women into anything is what amazes us.

      • YES! I totally agree!

      • It’s the same with Doctor Who… There’s a push for a female Doctor. I say no way!

    I want Bond to stay male. He is the fantasy man for women and the attraction is being the woman he is attracted to and the one he will spend the time and effort seducing. Lovely.


  3. Male. Always male. There have been other film series with a bad asks woman. Leave bond alone. But that he’ll stay that way for long but you know…

    • Grrr, not that he’ll stay that way for long. sigh. That’s what I get for trying to use my kindle. LOL.

    • Hot women seducing dudes into their doom isn’t that interesting to a dude as a movie. It happens all the time in real life. Dudes like James Bond movies because in reality the idea of getting a woman to do anything for us is unlikely. I’m impressed Bond gets women to turn over international secrets but I’d be just as impressed if Bond could get them to make him a sandwich.

    Great post 🙂 I agree with everything you say here especially with that sixth paragraph 🙂 Seriously what kind of names could a female James Bond have? Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
