Allow me to ignore you for a second and address my fellow fakers.
Ladies, I submit to you this new and crazy notion:
Boys don’t like comics.
Really. I know they say they do, and we just accept it as fact, but that’s where we’re going wrong. When quizzed, boys genuinely have no idea. They’re just in it for the tights and cape. They like the attention. And that’s fine if you’re packing a big utility belt; I’d like to see that kind of man action at my cons. But for those of you with Ant Man in their trousers… it’s time to hang up the spandex.
It’s actually kind of sad that boys feel the need to lie like this. I mean, they should spend less time trying to impress us, and more time fixing cars, or whatever it is they like to do. Leave the comics to the real fans. I bet they don’t even know Barbara Gordon’s birthday. Try asking a Geek Boy when Hal Jordan made his first appearance. The blank look of his face would be sweet if he wasn’t so pathetic.
Look, I’m not an misandrist! I have plenty of guy friends, and I even have a brother! It’s just that girls are naturally more intelligent. We understand the complex story lines of a comic series easier than boys do. It’s science! Boys are good at other things. But boys who say they like comic books… they just want all the girls to look at them. I say we don’t give them the satisfaction.
And if you don’t agree with anything I’ve just written…
Because it’s a pathetic argument. And it’s just as pathetic when it’s aimed at girls.
I shouldn’t have to flash my nerd credentials whenever some self-appointed gatekeeper of the Elysium Fields of geekdom decides that there is no way I could like something as macho as comics.
Newsflash! There is no reason to attach a gender to the act of reading. I enjoy comics as much as I enjoy reading fantasy and sci-fi. There is no reason for you to come on to my blog and be so rude.
And as a side-note, I’m assuming Baletard is your uber-offensive way of saying my love of Batman stems from the Nolan films. Allow me to correct this idea by saying that I don’t think any modern adaptation in live-action fully appreciates how complex Batman is, and the Nolan versions are the worst. I prefer my Caped Crusader to be animated.
I could list my comics, my graphic novels, my collectibles or anything else it takes to get my nerd passport approved. But what is it about the genre that makes you hate women so much? You seem to misunderstand something fundamental about women:
We are not here for your amusement. We are not here to impress you. Sometimes we are here to buy Nightwing and be our own people without being judged by awful elitists like yourself
Thank you for visiting my blog. Kindly leave your hate at the door next time.
Why doesn’t this have more notes?!
Let’s give it more notes. It should have them.
I’m totes in it for butts but you know what, sometimes one needs to read the entire backstory for the butts to have meaning, and meaningful butts are so much more satisfactory to read about. I mean I COULD just drool over Steve Rogers in his Commander Rogers uniform WITHOUT CONTEXT but WITH context I get extra manpain and possibly boys crying and THAT’S WHAT MAKES IT AWESOME.
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
Like at least arrange them on some kinda SCALE damn, putting Jennifer Lawrence and John Green next to wife beaters and rapists
Here let me spend time organizing this list of problematic people by degrees because some individuals aren’t satisfied with the organization and need a severity spectrum to understand the concept that some of these people are shittier than others.
the essential probem here is that someone has more moral responsibility not to support the career of a rapist or abuser than they do not to support the career of something like jennifer lawrence or john green who has said a few cluelessly offensive things
by making posts that even implicitly put them in the same category, you’re contributing to an environment that either comes down way too hard on people for liking relatively harmless celebs or (much worse) doesn’t treat rapists and abusers in the public eye with the seriousness that they actually deserve by applying “it’s okay to like problematic things” rhetoric to them
it’s so dumb that piercings and tattoos can impact your ability to find a job. employers shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or level of punk-rockness
If you were about to have a surgery done, would you feel comfortable if she/he had gages and tattoos all over their face?
I mean presumably they went to medical school I literally would not give a single shit what they decided to put on their face
