follow me on Twitter for more indignation about comic culture and bad puns.
They do realize people are usually referring to the comics, not the movies?
you mean like DC which has two prominent characters right now named “Superman” who are black? Or how the Batfamily has had leads that range from black man to lesbian former soldier to an upcoming series where the two leads are women of color? Where about half of the batbooks are led by people who aren’t white dudes? Or how there’s been a team of all women in the DCU for the past 15 years and even had a TV show based on the team? where DC has 7 female writers to Marvel’s 3?
Everyone fawns at Marvel for their progressiveness but the only thing they have is better PR
You bring up female Thor? When Wonder Woman has been around since the 40s? Plus, that “Wonder Woman is not a feminist” wasn’t even what the guy said.
And I honestly doubt that “Thor is a woman; Cap is black” will last.
Yeah the comic Birds of Prey had existed for a long time and had a TV series (although it wasn’t successful) before you boast about Agent Carter.
In the comics, didn’t Marvel recently have a grand total of comics featuring women that was ZERO, when DC had like 6?
Marvel just plays PR better announcing their new “progressive” stuff in huge press releases everyone knows about.
Are ya’ll even fucking kidding?
When DC was trying to put feelers out for new artists THEY. GLORIFIED. SUICIDE.
Did you forget that? Harley Quinn sitting *naked* in a bathtub, surrounded by electronics on a rip cord with an, “Oh well,” expression on her face?
Also, Marvel is actually going to fucking get there with diversity. Cap’s black now. When Northstar got married to his sweetie Kyle, it was the front cover of his comic. All Marvel needs is a little more time and a little more creative freedom.
Everyone thought Guardians was going to flop because, “who the fuck are these guys?” But it didn’t. Marvel now had the potential to go just about anywhere.
no one ever said DC was this bastion of perfection. Everyone is saying that Marvel and DC are the same and neither one is better than the other.
Also: Apollo and Midnighter got married a decade before Northstar did and it wasn’t a publicity stunt.
First the cops said Mike Brown stole candy from a store. Then the store denied any such thing happened. Then the cops claimed Brown was trying to wrestle the gun from the cop in the car…despite the fact all the witnesses claim he was several feet away from the car and never near it.
IMO, by the time the Ferguson cops are done, they’ll have claimed Brown also shot Lincoln, JFK, Biggie and Tupac.
Please stay woke, people
so being a reader is basically a constant struggle between deciding on reading what you bought recently, what you bought ages ago and should stop ignoring, and what you really ought to reread.
And then reading fanfic instead.
The accuracy is incredible
One of the reasons your tuition is high and classes are getting cut.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
fact checked and…apparently this is completely correct.
And people wonder and complain when I am “down” on sports.
Originally, in the 20s and 30s, the stereotype of someone who was schizophrenic was the housewife who was sad and withdrawn, and would not do her duties as a housewife; would not do the housework. This was the typical case of schizophrenia. And then, in the 60s, something shifted. The actual criteria for schizophrenia shifted. A lot of psychiatrists and hospitals and police were encountering young, angry black men who were part of the civil rights movement. Who were part of the riots — the uprisings — in the Black Power movement. Who were angry. Who were perceiving a conspiracy of power against them, that was called paranoia. They would see it is white privilege, but it was called paranoia. And so we actually see the diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia change. So now you have anger and paranoia and hostility being included as criteria, whereas 30 years before they hadn’t been. Because the stereotype has changed. So there’s a way in which the DSM and the perspectives of the psychiatrists and the doctors who were giving these diagnoses is thoroughly politically constructed, and thoroughly dependent on the culture and context that they’re within.
For anyone interested in reading more about how schizophrenia moved from being a diagnosis assigned to white, middle-class women to one used to pathologize and institutionalize noncompliant black men in the 1960s, Jonathan Metzl’s The Protest Psychosis: How Schizophrenia Became a Black Disease is a good place to start.
I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.
"I’m really feeling good about myself!"
This makes me SO happy. Amazing!
MCU Clint Barton: Rugged and Handsome Action Hero, defeats hordes of Chitauri without getting a scratch on him, lands sick jumps off skyscrapers, too cool to speak outside of quips
Comic Book Clint Barton: gets his ass kicked by russian gangsters in tracksuits on a daily basis, would probably eat floor pizza if Kate wasn’t around to stop him
True enough, HOWEVER: Comic Book Clint Barton has plenty of moments of sheer incandescent badass,
therefore it only stands to logic that MCU Clint Barton does indeed eat the floor pizza because there is no Kate around to stop him.
