Sony just inked a deal with Marvel Comics to put out a female-led superhero movie based on a character from the Spider-Man universe (like, I don’t know, Spider-Woman?). This may have been an alternate cover, but it’s launched 1,000 think pieces, the conclusion of which has been: “This is what happens when men draw female characters.” If this is how Spider-Woman is envisioned for the comics, female fans shouldn’t get their hopes up for the movie version.

Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, recently said that he thought there ought to be a female superhero film. And yet he hasn’t green-lit one, despite the fact that fans are practically begging for a Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson—a spinoff from the Avengers franchise. Perhaps he’s waiting to see how Sony and Marvel’s yet-to-be-named super-heroine will do first, which is why drawings like this one matter.

Time's article explicitly draws the line between the Spider-Woman cover and the potential for a Black Widow movie. It sounds ridiculous to say, but until I read this article, as much as I was frustrated with both the cover and the lack of film prospects, I hadn’t made the connection between them.

Fudge recipe on a headstone

I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.

I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”

That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.

"This fudge is delicious! Why do you call it ‘gravestone’ fudge?"
"Oh, it’s just a recipe I got off a gravestone."

I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.

I’d never even considered this but I support it

Yes!!

I was just talking to my husband about this today — we went to lunch in a hotel with a swanky-ass bathroom and a super cute, cushioned changing station in the ladies’ room…and nothing in the men’s room. “How’s a dad supposed to change their kid?” “Give them to mom to do it.” “How’s a dad by himself supposed to do it? Or a dad when the mom says ‘No, forget that, I did it at the last 20 places because the men’s rooms had no changing tables’?”

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

"At least one member of the CHICAGO POLICE supports you brother"

This is why, white people

Ugh. Anyone who donates to that is an asshat. Anyone who donates and leaves a comment like that is so beyond asshattery there isn’t even a word for it.

There should be a show just called “AU”

every single episode, a group of the same characters are in a different alternate universe with no explanation as to why.

THIS IS EXCELLENT except I have to disagree with one point: Jane Austen wouldn’t be hella annoying on social media - she’d just be trolling all the time.

I agree about Austen. Troll 4LYF.
