I wrote a post on this a long time ago, but apparently in the months and months that followed, idiot liberals still can’t get through their heads what the real problem here is, instead preferring to call anyone who points out the issue racists and sexists and all manner of other names. Therefore, I’m going to do this really, really slow for the crazy liberals among you.
Female Thor isn’t Thor. Get it through your thick skulls.
See, unlike Captain America, Thor isn’t a title, it is a proper name. Thor Odinson. If is the particular name of a particular person, it isn’t something that can be passed on like the title of Captain America was passed from Steve Rogers to Sam Wilson. Anyone who has ever read a fucking comic would know this, but apparently, as is usually the case, these idiot social justice dimwits have no clue what it is that they’re talking about. It’s just “fill a quota! fill a quota!”
But no, I’ve recently seen more of the crazed SJWs out screaming that anyone who doesn’t love female Thor just as much as the old Thor is a racist (not sure how that one works) and a sexist, because… reasons. They can’t stand anyone pointing out that female Thor just isn’t Thor, not because it’s an inferior character, not because it’s got breasts, but because shit just doesn’t work that way and for some reason, these whiny liberals can’t figure out why.
So let’s get away from comics for a moment and see if they can understand this from a different angle. When Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, he gained the title. He didn’t gain the name of the person who held the title before him. He didn’t become George W. Bush. We haven’t had 43 George Washingtons in the White House. It doesn’t work that way!
I suppose that picking Thor to be the one to get the female remake was problematic from the start because Thor, unlike most other Marvel superheroes, has no title. He is Thor. He has no secret identity. He uses his real name all the time. Anyone who takes over his powers has no ownership of his name, they become someone else, not Thor. However, if they called the character something else, it would confuse readers, thus the general clusterfuck that has occurred. Why these liberal asshats can’t understand the reality of the complaints is beyond me. They can only see the world in terms of racism and sexism, it’s part of their mantra, something they repeat over and over and over again because to them, nothing else exists.
I’m really hoping all of this liberal stupidity goes away in May when they reboot the entire universe. It won’t stop the liberals from whining but hopefully sanity will reign.
