I’ve had it. Fellow comic book geeks are working on my last nerves. So, here are three good reasons other comic book geeks can kiss my ass twice!
1. Some geeks are racist. Let’s just get this one out of the way. When the ethnicity of popular and white comic book superheroes change, some geeks through a fit. Like the time Marvel created a Black-Latino Spiderman. Racist nerds couldn’t take it. How dare does Marvel change the color of Spiderman?!
Maybe, Black-Latino Spiderman wasn’t intended for white geeks. Maybe, he was intended for geeks of color. For awhile, that group was rarely catered to. Maybe, Marvel realized folks were willing to lay some down some serious cash to see a hero who looks more like them. Yet, just like some white people in general, some white geeks think everything is all about them, as if their needs and wants are above everyone else.
2. Some geeks talk during the movies. When I watched the latest Captain America movie, two geeks sitting behind me talked during the whole fucking movie. I mean, they talked loud.
Then, before the movie ended, one of the assholes told the plot out loud to his buddy. I didn’t want his overweight and balding ass telling it. I wanted to find out the plot for myself.
At least, when black people yell at the screen, it’s somewhat funny.
“Aw, man, you shouldn’t have opened the damned door!”
You see, this person really isn’t telling the plot. They’re just getting too involved with the movie.
But oh no, Nerd Ass behind me had to blab the whole thing.
With the exception of Batman, I may never watch another comic book movie in a theater. Comic book geeks ruined it for me.
3. Some geeks are extremely sexist. Over the years, I witnessed dudes of various shapes and sizes dressed as their favorite comic book character, movie character, science fiction character, etc. Nobody bats an eye when they see a fat Aquaman. Yet, when it’s an “overweight” Wonder Woman, many dudes lose it.
When they cosplay, females are expected to have the same body frame as the characters they portray, a body usually drawn by dudes and impossible to achieve in real life. Imagine an overweight Thor telling a normal-bodied Black Widow she’s too fat for her costume.
It just doesn’t end there either. During conventions involving cosplay, some women have been groped.
And don’t let me get started at the racism aimed at black female cosplayers. They deal with double standards worse than the white women. First, some idiots say they aren’t the right color. Second, they say the women don’t have the right body, as if She Hulk can’t have booty.
If that’s how they treat the sistas, does this mean white women can’t be Storm? I’ll just let that hang there.
I’m done with many comic book geeks. They’re assholes. They give other comic book geeks a bad name. These are the three main reasons they can kiss my ass twice. Maybe, you have your own reasons.
