The artful Aviator: So I'm guessing I'm the only one who knows Gwen Stacy was Peter's first love... →

At least in the comic books.
Then she died.
And Mary Jane (That whore) was introduced.
And I don’t even read comics.
Well, you might be the only one who “knows” this…
lolwhat helloooo angry feminism/you-don’t-read-comics-and-got-some-things-wrong post.
on tumblr? yes, yes you are :U
also, miss-i-don’t-even-read-comics op probably should have stayed quiet, if her problem was ‘not even reading comics’, instead of writing such an amazingly dumb post just to rag on mj. »
i do think she wasn’t actually thinking about sex workers when she said whore, though, l-lol. that seems a bit specific and foundationist to me.
i can’t stop laughing at abnormanal’s macro, though. just. lmfao. op is so fail. gwen stacy? oh, she’s pretty obscure. you’ve probably never heard of her.
Dude what. I think y’all are getting way too fandom angry about this. Yeah, the OP doesn’t read comics. Whatever. Spiderman’s a pop culture thing too, and the new movie that’s coming out has Gwen Stacy as the love interest. That’s bound to piss off a lot of people who specifically do not read the comics and only know of MJ. I’m guessing that this wave of angry folks is what the OP is reacting to.
Anyhow dude casual badmouthing of a character in any fandom is totally normal. No need for anyone to get up anyone else’s butt about it.
ah hah, i-it… actually didn’t occur to me to think of it in terms of people who only know about the movies. that’s a good point!
i don’t know what all the whore stuff was about. personally i thought that was taking it a bit too seriously, not to mention too literally… i thought abnormanal’s macro was an a) perfect and b) lulzy response, though. and also not taking it too seriously nor getting up anyone’s butt.
“also, miss-i-don’t-even-read-comics op probably should have stayed quiet, if her problem was ‘not even reading comics’, instead of writing such an amazingly dumb post just to rag on mj. ” <— this just seems, to me, to be a little harsh on someone who has straight up said they haven’t read the comics/their opinion has come from the general social knowledge of what Spiderman is. Seems like, if you are going to get upset about fandom bagging, then just… correct mildly, instead of telling people to keep quiet about their opinions.
It’s not necessarily just you, though, that I’m ragging on - the … I guess second-to-OP(Skalia?) poster was SUPER bitchy, but in a way that to me seemed like they were way way WAY more offended by the use of ‘whore’ and supposed ‘slut-shaming’ than the actual inaccuracy of the comment. Second-to-OP seemed to totes overreact and then frame it in Righteous Fandom Anger, which is just a buttbaggy thing to do. (Yes, buttbaggy.)
(Also yes anything hipster!macro is funny to me.)
