So THIS Is How They Write A Female Thor?!?

I’m not a comic book fan, let alone a Marvel fan, so I didn’t really have an opinion about Thor being changed female. If Marvel wanted to give one of the Avengers a sex-change operation, so be it. Thor has been turned into a frog and a horse-like creature, so why not a human woman? (And it’s not like fans haven’t Rule 63 and 34’d him or any other comic book character!)

But then I came across these scans of the female Thor comic book, and, well, it seems like the creators decided to tackle criticism of the new character in the most “mature” manner possible:

Gee, good going, Marvel! Way to sway anyone who may have been skeptical of the female Thor by portraying all critics of her as a literal troll!

If this is how feminists write comic books, then it’s no wonder why there’s such an anti-feminist backlash in geekdom.
