Stop Being Stupid

Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

He’s ok. Funny. Does not deserve the shit he gets at all.

maybe for his extreme homophobia?

To be honest, that’s something I’ve barely ever seen mentioned. Most people seem to site that stupid video he made that he pulled down regarding what guys want in women, which turned out to be stuff you’d expect Disney or something to reflect (smart and confident women, makes you a better person, yada yada).

Anonymous asked: So I'm guessing you don't like the changes? I'm female myself and while I'm kinda okay with Captain America, I'm hugely against the changes to Thor.

afpe-ask-blog:

I dont think we should change existing characters to make other people feel better. just make new ones for the love of god

The Captain America switch I don’t mind entirely as long as there’s a good reason and it’s not rushed. The Thor switch COULD be a good one but to be honest, if they wanted more female heroes, why not put someone else there? Why not Sif? Why not introduce other characters from Norse Mythology and have them be heroes? I mean, it’s Marvel Comics, they have a whole smorgasbord of characters that they can make.

you spend your time calling people stupid on the internet through your “socialjusticestupidity”-blog and complain about thor being a woman go away 

I find it weird, yes, but what gets me is why I’m not seeing feminists go ape-shit since the whole thing seems to fit into the whole “ms man” trope they hate. Besides, how is that anywhere similar to people who say they have multiple people living inside them like it’s a fashion trend or calling themselves ‘bunself’ or ‘faeself’ or using terms like ‘nanogender’ and ‘demisexual’? At least my issue with the Thor situation is something that’s relatively insignificant, people on tumblr want to do everything they can to feel ‘oppressed’. So, please do tell me how I’m in the same league as people who sincerely believe that ‘some genders are race exclusive’ in terms of stupidity?

you literally lost me i said that you complain about “stupid people” and thor being female when the fuck did i mention gender identities

It’s a topic that’s come up before. That’s the kind of stupid I’m against. The topic of thor being a woman is a newer one, some of the shit I’ve seen before goes beyond that. The reason why I brought up that stuff is because all you’ve gleamed is that I dislike female Thor and the reasons why are what you find to be stupid and thinking it’s ironic that I’m against stupid people and so on. If you look at some of the other crap I’ve seen here though, you’ll hopefully piece together just why I’m against stupid people, and part of that is the insanity that is made up gender identities and the objectification of mental disorders and treating them like they’re a new purse, or the stupidity of people claiming that anything and everything is cultural appropriation.

I’ve only seen “hella” used by white people.

I love how anon even says swagger was Shakespearean but apparently it doesn’t matter. The whole thing with aave is stupid anyway, arguing that people can’t use it because of reasons

dont you just fucking love when your post end up on an anti-sj/feminist blog haha wow good times good times 

I’m against stupid people and typically (though admittedly not always) there’s a lot of stupid people in the social justice “movement”.

Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman.  From Time Magazine:

TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?

Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.

Time: Marvel Comics Writers Explain Why They’re Making Thor a Woman

"Axel Alonso, Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief: She wields the hammer because Thor can’t. This is different because for reasons we can’t disclose quite yet, Thor is unable to pick up the hammer. There are a number of women in Thor’s life, and we’re going to tease out for quite awhile the identity of who this woman is. But one of the women in Thor’s life picks up the hammer. She is in fact worthy. And she becomes Thor.

There’s only one Thor in the Marvel Universe. The character we know as Thor will not refer to himself as Thor anymore.”

So I guess that this character is going to wield the hammer thus having the power and now name of the god of Thunder “Thor”. This is a mega weird way to go about this but meh I’m going to sit and see what happens

well done agentmlovestacos :)

It’s needlessly complicated; just fucking call her anything else but Thor. Seriously that will end all confusion. Thor isn’t a title like Captain America…it’s a name…Thor Odinson. Did they forget?

Well as it says in the post, it is a title and other people/creatures have had the title before.

No, other people have wielded Mjolnir before. No one has ever taken his name. Thor is his birthname, not a title. You don’t get his name by getting his hammer, only his power. Look, if King Arthur gave you Excalibur and abdicated his throne, you wouldn’t be King Arthur, you’d be a king under a new name. That’s where the problem lies. Getting the hammer only gives you Thor’s powers not his name. It’s always been like that.

Not only is this potentially offensive to people who worship Thor (pagans and such) but it’s also clear that Marvel’s just pandering.

This is pandering, really. Thor is a male god. If ‘Venus’ had become a popular superhero connected to historical god status, you couldn’t just up and make it a man without being disrespectful.

It also doesn’t help that this is a case of Ms. Man. Seriously, are ANY feminists freaking out about that?! Fucking hypocrisy.

You know, the one thing I never really did understand about the whole ‘buff super heroes are empowering to men while sexualized outfits are demeaning to women’ argument is, how wide spread is this? I mean, there are undoubtedly nerds and geeks and social outcasts of the female gender, right? And what’s one of the most common traits most people want to be? Desired. What’s one of the things noticeable among super heroines? They’re desirable, guys want a Wonder Woman in both character and beauty and the same for all of the other heroines. Now, i get that too much cheesecake is a bad thing, but let’s use this time to look at the issue from the perspective of men: it’s never considered a bad thing just how ‘buff’ some guy is (criticism of Rob Liefeld aside). It’s never expanded how this is a bad thing. To be honest, the only example I’ve seen that comes close to this is Gaston; dude is buff as shit and looks like what many people would be considered desirable but he’s a total asshole. Attitude and character aside though, his physique is what seems to be lusted by many women. The thing is, whenever this point is brought up, i.e. that men are put in a similar position in comics and other media, it’s always (not ‘almost always’, ALWAYS) called ‘male empowerment’ by the opposing side. They’ll instantly hail it as some kind of male power fantasy to look like Superman or Captain America or anyone else of that stature. Yet, it’s considered a bad thing whenever cheesecake for guys comes into play. They’ll say that making women look like sex objects is a bad thing, but doing the same thing to men apparently isn’t.

I know I must have worded this poorly but basically what I’m trying to get at is, if the idea of being ‘sexy’  for others or whatever is demeaning to women and that women should be seeking to be ‘sexy’ on their terms for their own purposes, why isn’t it true for men? Anytime someone tries to say otherwise though, they usually try to down play the issue. You’ll see plenty of people rally up a huge amount of support for women of every body type, and yet it barely applies to men. Any time there IS support for men, however, do take notice of the various body types and notice how there’s not quite as many supported. It’s just interesting to note and point out how you’ll see feminists and so on talk about body issues of women and point to the media about it and call it a bad thing, but the moment the subject’s gender is swapped to male, they call it an entirely different issue and how it’s not demeaning or something to men to want to look like a super hero.

To those who don’t understand the difference between DC and Marvel,

You can be strong and not a feminist. I’d go as far to say that feminism makes women weaker by allowing women to be victims.

Just because Marvel is making Thor a woman doesn’t mean she will be a feminist. She probably will be, because they made her to just pander to feminists.

Which is funny considering how isn’t this a case of Ms. Man? The very trope feminists hate? It’s gonna be interesting to see them go nuts, good or bad, over this.
