did it ever occur to you that most woman still want to be viewed as people by their boyfriends?
I mean sure their are women out there that like to flaunt themselves, my mom and my sister are like that. but then you have people like my girlfriend, and my girlfriend has a great rack, but it is a constant annoyance to her because that is all people tent to see about her. she has even gone to wearing t-shirt 2 sizes up so her chest does not stick out like a deployed air bag.
now me and my girlfriend are huge comic book geeks, and i often call her "my little pepper" because she is a lot like Pepper Potts, in her PERSONALITY (yes women have those too).
but just like pepper, Tony pulling this stunt would be the equivalent of me taking my girlfriend to the mall, purposely spilling a drink on her and then "shaking her dry" I am going to get smacked, and probably not see inside her shirt for a month.
so yes, some women like their bodies to be flaunted around by their boyfriends. MOST others do not. so think about that next time you post a prude comment of "she should take it as a compliment".
It never occurred to me, 'cause it's like this "objectification" pseudo-science - I can't understand something that doesn't exist. Go tell your girl about how you like her only as personality and pure soul, and that body thing - eh, you never truly care about that lowly staff, no sir. Have you paid attention to Obi Van? Only Sith deal in absolutes!
Think about my next prude comment, what the fuck? ) Who are you, feminist police? Have I committed some form of crime here, officer? Misogyny? I commented about boobs not being taboo in a (happy) relationship of two people. Angry mob tried to deny this so angrily, I mean, are you people OK? Sexual revolution already happened back in the 60s.
yes and racism ended with the civil rights act (sarcasm)
I am not saying that some people don't do this or some woman like their boyfriends constantly reminding them of how great their body looks. But Pepper is not one of those people. if you put someone like Black Cat in this comic the reaction might be more to your description and it would be no issue because it matches her personality.
some men like to grow beads, some like mustaches, others stay clean shaven. Some build up their muscles, some like to stay skinny, some say fuck all and get fat.
women are have different likes and dislikes when it comes to their appearance as well. and not every (happy) relationship or woman fits the same standard sized mold of what other people think it is like.
now that's an interesting point here about the Black Cat
so as I understand you have some concepts about how Harley Quinn, Selina Kyle and Pepper will behave in bed and that's... a very cool idea, actually. But! that's kinda open to interpretation in Pepper's case so I'll stick with a Black Cat one ))
yes cause i don't view them as blow-up dolls, they are people... fictional people but they where created and have developed over the years a personality unique to them that they each stick to. you come to expect these characters to act a certain way and respond to things differently, and if they break that expectation without any character development then they are "out of character"
imagine if superman started skulking around metropolis hiding in the shadows and talking in a snarly voice like batman imagine of tony stopped being a super hilarious snarky douche
pepper acting any differently than she did in this comic would "break character"
people come to comics for the superheroes, but they stay for the characters and personalities of the characters behind the mask. but if you start to break character people get turned off.
I am a comic book writer, each character I create takes on a life of their own, My girl Tara is a sexual deviant, she likes rough and hard and the session will probably end with some busies and probably some broken furniture. Victoria, and other character of mine, on the other like the slow more tender and sensual love making.
but both of these reflect in their everyday personality and in their interaction with other characters they may or may not be in a relationship with. Tara is loud, boastful, overly aggressive, and generally gives no fucks about what other people think and tells people off constantly. Victoria however is much more soft spoken, quite, stand off-ish and tries not to create fissures with others.
so saying in essence "she SHOULD take it as a complement" dose not take into account that maybe they would or maybe they would not because every woman does not fit the same mold.
