Now that you’re all butt-hurt because women can work in comics AND enjoy themselves, and expressing said outrage on the internet, it means that you just MADE this whole thing be a feminist/social justice issue. And you know who takes justice seriously? Superheroes. And when it comes to superheroes, Marvel & DC kind of own that shit. You will lose this argument. Was it worth it?
