Marvel's She-Hulk Takes The Crown For Feminist BS

In truth, there is nothing to be gained by comparing two groups against each other and trying to determine who has a harder time of it.

But, if that is the game we're playing, most of the statistical evidence would seem to suggest that in modern America women generally have the better deal. That's why girls are more likely to graduate high school, less likely to be suspended or expelled. Women are less likely to commit suicide, to become drug addicts, to become hopeless, homeless, less likely to suffer from workplace injuries. Women are less likely to be the victims of violent crime, they're less likely to be blown to pieces on the battlefield.

But sure, I guess the homeless, drug-addicted, suicidal, war-injured veteran on the street probably doesn't get cat-called very often, so he's got nothing on She-Hulk. Now, nobody is suggesting that women have no challenges or obstacles to overcome, but the idea that they have more obstacles than men, or more serious ones, is just not borne out by the facts, I'm sorry. And besides, as already noted, the comparisons are absurd and pointless. The only thing worse than being self-pitying, is to be competitive in your self-pity.

It's especially ridiculous to make this claim when you are a young, attractive woman in the modern Western world, because our modern society is essentially tailor-made to facilitate the happiness and success of that category of people. This has probably been a more serious analysis of a She-Hulk monologue than was necessary, but someone has to mansplain these things to her and I was more than happy to step up to the plate.
