Tons of redhead





The spider marriage was a farce. 60% of the time Mary Jane was either whining or hooking up with Peter. 
Erasing the marriage was the best thing to happen to Mary Jane.

fucking women wanting to have sex with their husbands, right?

"Hooking up"? So she can’t be sexually attracted to her husband or their marriage is a farce?And seriously, if you missed all the times they were supportive, comforting, playful, everything BUT “hooking up”, you weren’t paying attention. 

1st off they were a young married couple and my issue wasn’t that they were hooking up. I’m saying that hooking up was done more than actual development of the marriage outside of them hooking up.  
To clarify I do enjoy the character of Mary Jane, but not as Peter’s wife. Mary Jane was reduced to eye candy. Always wearing tight clothing and always wanting to have sex. Or she was captured by the villain of a particular arc. Mary Jane was turned into a caricature of herself. She wasn’t her own character but an extension of the plot.
She has often was given story lines out of a sitcom. Oh noes MJ is smoking cigarettes. Oh noes MJ is buying a gun. Oh no MJ has been captured by the villain. MJ is worried Peter is going to die. Mary Jane is getting naked. Mary Jane is wearing lingerie. Oh noes Mary Jane us cheating on Peter!
In the 20 years they were married that’s what we were subjected to. The Mary Jane we had before the marriage was not the one we got during the marriage. Didn’t help that the majority of the writers hated that Jim Shooter forced the marriage in to the comics.
The times you mention of being supportive, comforting, playful etc were few and far between. The only writers who wrote the marriage that well were JMS, Peter David, and JM DeMatties. Those who loved that marriage I will never understand why. Considering the majority of that marriage was soap opera drock that changed Mary Jane into somebody else. The character married to Peter wasn’t MJ. Thankfully we got MJ back when the marriage was erased.

What fucking sitcom has people worry their husbands will die or have plots about guns? And frankly that’s a goddam NATURAL line for the stories to take given the situation. YOU’D be packing Venom attacked you. YOU’D be worried about your husband. And the smoking thing was a good idea poorly executed. MJ literally never cheated on Peter and if you Jason Jerome, again poor execution valid idea. You’re also forgetting how in those 20 years MJ took out various villains, showed shittons of support for Peter, put up crap, saved his life literally and metaphorically and also was just a steadfast friend and confidant. You’re picking out a tiny number of selected examples which happened within a short space of time of one another and exaggerating them whilst at the same time taking things and playin them off as negative when they weren’t. MJ worrying is an invalid criticism because a) OF COURSE SHE’D WORRY and b) she was doing that before the wedding!
Indeed MJ under DeFalco and Michelinie in the 80s was VERY similar to MJ in during the marriage as you paint her. You’re just taking one noticeable alteration in status quo and then ignoring extenuating circumstances to paint it as something you want it to be/believe it to be whilst ignoring objective facts. 
The majority of the writers? PAD, Michelinie, JMD were all for it. DeFalco was for it. Sacasa and others were for it and everyone else just came in later. And if your a fucking professional writer you do the goddam job. If Spider-Man being married puts you off then take a hike because it’s not the most important thing in the book. it’s like moaning that you gotta write lois lane in superman. Suck it up and get it done son.
Other writers who wrote it well at times?
DeFalco (esp in Spider-Girl)
Mackie (yeah he really did)
Larsen (sometimes)
Yeah….a bit more than yer three names innit?
Why don’t you tell me what you think Mj was before the marriage and let’s see if it hold sup to what she was actually like thereafter?
Or don’t no skin off my nose. 

Also they developed the relationship under JMS. You got any idea how many times they shagged under him. dude it happened a lot
Also the “no one should be subjected to Spider-Man in speedos” thing? Grow the ef up man. a) maybe some people did like it (i didn’t) b) it was a solitary piece of humour c) frankly it slightly balanced the scales for all the female characters equally showing skin

Lobster in a bucket looks like a gigantic monster on a metallic planet, and the waterdrops look like stars.

dark humor is…

oh man wouldn’t it be GREAT if Hollywood gave Medusa the movie treatment and showed her as the tragic wronged hero she was? Just chillin’ out as a just a ordinary woman until Poseidon raped her in Athena’s temple and instead of being like “DUDE UNCLE NO WTF ARE YOU DOING?!” and smiting him, Athena punished the victim and turned her into a monster with snakes for hair…only wait Athena isn’t an idiot and how could she even punish the god of the sea? But she could give Medusa the power to make sure no man ever laid a goddamn finger on her again. Until Perseus traipsed in and fucked it all up. Way to go idiot. I bet if you’d just asked nicely she might have turned shit to stone for you.




Some are dark skinned


Some are light skinned


Some are big and some are small


Some look ‘complete’ and other might not be quite there


But no matter what

If you put them together


And blend them up



They taste pretty darn good

I’m getting you professional help.

my year 8 students had to do a budgeting activity pretending they were living out of home on $2000 a month and I find this written on there help I can’t fucking breathe

We had to do this and I was partnered with a boy whose parents are a scientist and a doctor. My family spawned the book: Top Drawer Villain - autobiography of a London criminal.
First of all, we had to choose where we would shop. He wanted to buy from Booths. “We are not buying from Booths," I snapped. "Get on Asda’s website right now." His face froze.
“A-Asda?" he whispered. "But that’s where… The Lower Classes shop.”
This was a good start.
We then had to decide on a menu. We started on breakfast. “Toast," he said.
“Toast," I said. "Great. Look, Asda has its own wholemeal—”
“Warburton’s thick-slice white bread. Nothing else. With olive oil.”
“You WHAT?" I choked. "You have olive oil, on your toast, in the morning?”
He frowned. “Who doesn’t?”
“Okay," I said, "but what will the children eat?”
He gaped at me. “The children? We have children?”
We continued. All was well until it came to what we would have on our sandwiches. We even sorted out the children’s lunch - they, of course, would get free school meals. “Yes," he agreed; "if we can’t even afford Bertolli then they can get school meals on the government.”
He asked what dressing we should have on our ham. “Nuh-uh," I said. "Can’t have ham. I’m vegetarian.”
“But I’m not.”
“Yes, but we’re married and we can only afford one sandwich filler so it has to be vege—”
“We’re married!?”
“Of course we’re married! You’re devout Christian - how do you think I convinced you to have children?”
He shook his head, frowning. “Well I want ham. You’ll have to put back the washing powder - I need ham on my sandwiches.”
We continued. Finally, it was dinner. “Okay," he said, clearly thinking hard; "for dinner, we can have… Chicken nuggets and… Beans?”
“Vegetarian nuggets then. And beans.”
“We need vegetables. The children have to have a balanced diet.”
“You and your children!" he yelled, and the whole class looked around.
“They’re your children too!" I screamed back.
He leapt to his feet, shaking his head and looking distraught. “I don’t believe it - I don’t believe you! I wouldn’t have your children!”
“Please," I cried, standing up also. "Don’t—”
“I want a divorce!”
And he walked out of the classroom.
The teacher stood up and stared between me and the door through which he had vanished. “I’m sorry," I whispered, "but we couldn’t do it any more. There were just too many differences - I can’t live with someone who thinks champagne is a budget.”
I can’t wait to see this guy when he gets to university.

That awesome moment


When Starbucks changes their tattoo and piercing policy the week before you start working there.
No long sleeves for dis bitch!!!
