People are acting like Marvel is super feminist because they are making Thor a woman. I am going to disagree with everyone on this.

It is a gimmick. Like “Thor the frog” it isn’t going to last. They are going to make a series of comics with Thor as a Woman and get tons of praise for doing so. But they will always go back to Thor being a man.

If Marvel wants to do something for Feminism then they should start creating more original Female superheros AND super-villains. Don’t cheapen it by putting in as little effort as possible by just taking an already known character and changing the sex. To me that is an insult and I think we as women deserve more.

Just my two cents

Thor’s sex isn’t changing (so to speak.) What is happening is that “Thor Odins Son” is no longer worthy of the hammer. He has done something to make the hammer deem him not worthy. The hammer has now chosen some one else to be worthy.

So basically you are getting a female who is now worthy of the hammer. So realistically this could go a few ways. 

1) Goes threw this comic run and is done
2) There is actually a spin of and you get background info for her and she eventually becomes a “different” superhero.

That honestly doesn’t make much sense to me. Why call her Thor? Does he loose his name when he becomes unworthy? Why does she gain the name Thor? To me she should have her own name, a New name. I have no problem with there being a story line where she takes Thor’s place as the only one worthy to wield mjolnir. I kind of like the Idea. But to say SHE IS THOR… Is ridiculous to me. Because what happens when they get tired of her (because they will). Will they just start over again with Thor as a man? Will Original Thor earn back his name? What happens to her? They throw her away. Because if they really had any intention of creating a Strong female Super Hero to draw in young girls and women then they would have picked something that had even a remote chance of lasting. And they didn’t do that and it makes me sad.

Because yes, I am a feminist. I love reading comic books or playing video games with strong women in them because that is who we are. Women are strong. That isn’t shown enough in comic books. I have already had to deal with DC ruining Wonder Woman and taking everything special and feminist about her away. But now I have to sit here and watch Marvel wrap everyone around their stupid fingers because nobody seems to see that this is a cop out. They are getting praise and glory from the female population for taking Thor and making Him/Her a Woman. When what they should be doing is Creating new  Female Characters Good and Evil. Showing that Women are capable of everything men are and sometimes more.

I think there are a lot of questions that can’t be answered until we fully see what happens with the character. 

For example why is she “Thor”. Maybe that is an integral part of the story, and her back story. We don’t know yet.

From what I understand we will also see Sam and “Female Thor” along with “Superior Iron Man” come together for an Avengers run also. So I very much doubt she will be a 1 off.

You also have to give Marvel some credit. They currently have Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Elektra, and Black Widow with a Storm title premiering soon. all with on going comics.


I have to give them credit for a few new comics with female leads??
That shouldn’t have even been that hard of a task. look at the ratio of men and woman in comics, Women deserve more. I am going to support these comics and read some of them because I am sure I will enjoy them, but to imply I should be grateful for having just a little piece of what men have is sad. So no I wont give Marvel Credit. Don’t get me wrong I’m grateful for progress we have had, but I believe Women deserve more and I don’t want people to settle for something when they could have better. They could have something that means more. To me this change with Thor feels cheap.

"I can’t be that person anymore"

"

“But you’re not fat, don’t say that,” he responded.

Tell that to the hips that got caught in a turnstile yesterday and everyday that she forgets to turn sideways. Tell that to the stores that stop at size 12 (or size 10 if she wanted to look her age). Tell that to the small woman rolling her eyes beside me on the subway as my booty spills over into her seat. Tell that to the holes my inner thighs have rubbed into every pair of jeans I own. Tell that to the rolls on my back & the crevices in my ass.

Tell that to the silence at the end of your sentence that should say “because fat people are ugly, because if I think you’re attractive you can’t be fat because I’m saving fat to degrade a woman two sizes smaller than you but with a flatter chest & a spare tire. Because you’re not fat is a compliment even when it’s not true because what I’m really saying is you don’t repulse me the way fat people are supposed to repulse me. Because I get final say on your body, not you & I’m giving you a pass for the same dimpled ass I laughed at on another woman yesterday because your waistline is smaller than hers and a normal woman would just be happy with that.”
