What’s still unclear is what “feminism” or “social justice” (or even “comic sales” or “false rape” ?!?!?!?!) had to do with, you know, having a fucking milkshake in the first place — but guess what, trolls? The joke’s on you. 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?

If Marvel & DC can set aside their competition and actually agree on something, it means they’re probably right. That’s just a life lesson, ya’ll. That, and don’t get between a person and their milkshake.
