It's true: "Progressives" have no sense of humor or capacity to enjoy

Yeesh -- here's yet another "progressive" happily proving his bonafides with another article lamenting the "lack of diversity" in, again, the latest X-film ("Days of Future Past"). Just take a look:

  • So let me ask you this; how important are women to your reading of the X-Men? In my view, the women are more than half the show.
  • But since then the franchise has only amped up the role of Hugh Jackman as badass alpha dog Wolverine, and Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen as the bickering marrieds, and scaled back on its women.
  • And not for nothing, it’s notable that the franchise’s female lead is naked all the time.
  • Storm gets to die brutally in one of the movie’s two dazzling “kill all the non-white characters” montages.
  • But they all serve as a gruesome footnote to the exciting adventures of a bunch of white guys.

You get the point. I wonder what it's like to be perpetually aggrieved ... about something, anything, everything. And the only "joy" you get is by bitching about the most inconsequential stuff.

Why am I not surprised that this article came from Comics Alliance? I mean, that site is run by a bunch of perpetually outraged Social Justice Warriors who think they know what's best for the comics medium. It's because of their SJW nuttery that I stopped going to that site altogether.

This is a major issue with our society. the fact that such mundane minutia is so prevelant in so many areas. to be so up in arms about FAKE PEOPLE yet do nothing for the real people next to you is absurd. and i am not even close to being a comics guy but isnt marvel pretty strong in their portrayal of minorites? considering in the avengers, Black Widow is the only character without a suit of armor, a chemically induced ability or a god. Pretty much makes her the strongest character among all of them. jesus christ, now im stuck in the minutiae vortex.
