Latest trigger for fragile masculinity? Women with milkshakes.

This needs to be read to be believed. O.o

A female Marvel comics editor posts a milkshake selfie — and fanbabies throw a fit :: We Hunted The Mammoth

An editor at Marvel posts a photo of herself and some others enjoying milkshakes. That prompted "fake geek girls" and "diversity hires" responses, and it.. went from there.

What I find amusing is they are being called fake geeks. At least one is an editor. That means her name is on comics and/or should be known.

Umm, the name of an editor would not catch a real geek offguard.

Is it just me, or are so-called "Real Men" just about the whiniest bitches on Earth?

You know, a lot of these guys hate being thought of as immature childmen for reading comic books and watching cartoons at 30+ years old. I make an effort to not be judgmental along those lines, but it gets kinda challenging when they're constantly stamping their feet and throwing tantrums like they do.

It's the angry fuckboy/forever a 12 yearold snot cycle.

Many people never grow past it, but it gets super apparent with "nerd" stuff. Sports stuff too.

Pathetic. The victim mentality has really gone amok among these men.

What the fuck does a selfie with milkshakes have to do with social justice.

I'm all ears.

Apparently having the temerity to have more than a token woman employed at Marvel means that they are being overrun by SJW feminazis, or some shit like that.

My ears are open too, although I suspect the resulting "answer" would still elicit a "Haha! No, you simpleton!" from me.

Sorry giant nerd manbabies, but the women of Marvel have been putting out top fucking notch comics that I'm barely able to put down while the latest generation of male comic book creators literally are mid event in a "WHAT IF CAPTAIN AMERICA WAS REALLY A NAZI??????!!!!!! story.

Let me sell you on Ms. Marvel right now, written/drawn by a pair of the ladies who are masters of kapow bang and biff.





Then maybe follow up with some Squirrel Girl



Written by a man, but drawn buy a woman.

Well they do - but I don't see any reason to cry about it.

Would be interesting to gain some kind of vague idea of what the balance of paper/digital is like in comics now..

(Not to detract from the point the CBR story makes, though. Personally, with the likes of Squirrel Girl, I might actually be drawn into Marvel's audience! Lately, my purchases have been along the lines of Giant Days, Lumberjanes, Steven Universe Ongoing, Space Battle Lunchtime, and SLAM)

Back in the day it was often said that that only children, not 'real men', read comics.

Irony there. If we did go back to traditional ways they'd all have to give them up after elementary school anyway.

i think the biggest trigger is not the milkshakes but the fact that the women have really cool jobs that they are good at.
