Okay, I need to get this off my chest.
Occasional Superheroine, I do believe you are wrong-very wrong- on the "overly excessive argument"
I am reminded me of a line from Martin Luthor King's Letter from A Birmingham jail, where he comments about how he was told to "wait".
Yes, if only we can get Sideshow Collectible & Marvel Entertainment to pull the MJ statue, we may win freedom for our people. We too may be able to vote, to share the same water fountains with fanboys.
It starts with one woman: Mary Jane Watson. If we can liberate her from the twin evils of cheesecakery and blissful housewivery, it will be the crucial blow against the patriarchy that we need to turn the tide.
But first -- Stephanie must get her trophy case.
Oh, news just in -- Stephanie & Mary Jane NOT REAL PEOPLE.
Here's some links regarding the real oppression of women -- real women, not comic book characters:
Afghan girls struggling to get education
Women enslaved in global sex trade
Now go compare your struggle as a comic book fan angry that Stephanie doesn't have a trophy case to the s**t these women went through.
I mean, the MJ and Stephanie and Power Girl discussions, they're a good start. It's like school. Graduate from school, and apply all that passion and sense of social justice towards something in our reality. You can still discuss Power Girl. But break it up a little bit. Maybe devote 50% of your bandwith to Stephanie getting her trophy case, and 50% to Afghan women setting themselves on fire because their lives are so damn miserable. Or maybe 75% Stephanie, 25% Russian sex slaves. Or maybe two pages of posts on "Fangirls Attack" on MJ, one page on domestic violence in Canada. Maybe I'll stop being such a self-absorbed snarky blogger myself. You don't think I read about the real s**t that goes on in this world and feel like a jackass sometimes for the stupid fangirl s**t I write about?
