I literally just posted this news, so feel free to skip over this post if you can't take stupid people being stupid and come party with us here where everything is nice and fun.
In any event, let's have a look at some of the worst of humanity expressing their disgust at the concept of a Thor who isn't a dude.
Political correctness gone mad!!
Marvel's changed Thor into a woman. Victory for gender equality or pointless publicity stunt? I think you know the answer.

Ooh, which is it? Which is it?
@SGT_BuckyBarnes "Nothing to worry about. Just some kind of spin off. Male Thor will come back."

Not according to the actual writer of the series. I mean, I'm sure that Thor will eventually regain his powers, but that doesn't make this a spin-off.
@laufeysdottir lmao i guess everyone has forgotten what thor's hammer is a literal fucking smybol for and now im laughing

There has literally never been a better time for this gif:
THOR ISN'T A FUCKING TITLE TO BE PASSED AROUND! IT IS THE NAME OF THE DUDE!

And if there's one thing I know about names, it's that nobody has the same name ever. Or that names can't ever be titles. Or that superheroes can't ever have symbolic names. Like Bruce Batman Wayne. It's his name you guys.
is the female thor named THOT? where am i

Representing half of the human race = outrageous, out of ideas.
With that said, fair is fair. Many of the reactions have been great. So enjoy a little positivity on your way out:
Remember when Thor was a frog? Too bad that ruined the character FOREVER

Thor is now a woman. Yay!! The first time Loki makes a pass at her, I'm out like a trout. Potential nay. Nervous to see how Marvel proceeds.

Why wouldn't Marvel gamble on a female Thor? The films & Kid Loki attracted a legion of new female fans, strike while Mjolnir's still hot.
