After ruining comic books to the point where many of the top brands are no longer as profitable as they used to be a decade ago, and tanking many top-name video game franchises to push the SocJus narrative into the domain of gamers, it appears as if the restless vanguard of the Intersectional Inquisition are targeting the Marvel movies for infinitesimal topical issues since there isn’t too much else to complain about in entertainment these days.
Vox recently tweeted out an article by Racked, who complained that the females in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War didn’t tie up their hair in buns or ponytails. Given that the women in the movies are dressed from head to toe and aren’t allowed to show leg or cleavage anymore due to all the whining from SJWs, the next target from the perpetually offended is to target hairstyles… yes, hairstyles.
Rebecca Jennings from Racked, writes…
“[Avengers: Infinity War] combines characters from no fewer than 18 Marvel movies and an absolutely dizzying 76 superheroes and supporting characters, from Black Panther to Iron Man. But one thing you won’t be seeing a lot of? Hair ties.
“Which, to anyone with longer than shoulder-length hair who has played on a recreational soccer league as a kid, seems nuts. Aren’t these people, like, fighting each other? While doing flips and jumps and stuff? […]
“[…] So why don’t Black Widow, Gamora, Scarlet Witch, and Mantis — and even superheroines beyond Infinity War, from Wonder Woman to Jessica Jones, Elektra, Storm, and She-Hulk — ever seem to take a second to throw their hair into a chic chignon (or, more likely, a half-assed messy bun like the rest of us do before an activity as simple as getting on the elliptical)?”
Yes, the article’s premise is based on why comic book movie females don’t tie up their hair. This article is being syndicate around plenty of lesser sites as part of Google’s agenda to keep pushing Leftist politics at the forefront of AI’s sociopolitically partisan algorithm.
The article cites Christina Dokou, a culture studies professor at the University of Athens, who basically sums up the occurrence of females not wearing ponytails into battle as a problem that stems from the patriarchy, telling Racked…
“Even today, the physical attributes and feminine beauty of superheroines are exaggerated to make them look like, well, frankly, porn stars at worst, and sexy female athletes at best,”
The article conveniently ignores all of the men with long hair in the Marvel films, such as Thor played by Chris Hemsworth, or Loki who is played by Tom Hiddleston. The article further ignores the fact that The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, kept his hair flowing and long all throughout Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, despite the fact that he was running, jumping, fighting, shooting, driving, and getting his arm blasted off.
The article also ignores that Tessa Thompson had her hair up in a ponytail in Thor: Ragnarok. In fact, some Twitter users mocked Vox and Racked with an image of Thompson from Thor: Ragnarok with her hair in a ponytail.

The article also conveniently ignores the context in which these other characters are depicted in Avengers: Infinity War, where characters such as Mantis aren’t engaged in physical combat, so why would she tie her hair up? Or how Black Widow has short hair so that she doesn’t have to tie her hair up, or how Scarlet Witch doesn’t need to use physical combat to fight. Of course, logic and facts are an enemy to the typical Social Justice Warrior’s flimsy, identity politics-driven argument.
Even the comment section ripped apart Racked’s article. Dom Sequitur wrote…
“Thor has (had at one time) long, blonde hair; Loki does too. Aquaman doesn’t put his wavy locks in a ponytail, so I wonder if the author finds those acceptable examples of visual interest or a sign of inappropriate gender representation.”
The Twitter responses were filled with mockery of the asinine article.

While most moderates continue to use the excuse that ignoring SJWs will make them go away, the reality is that they seem to be maintaining their power, ruining franchises, killing off brands, and making life miserable for everyone.
With companies like Twitter, Facebook and Google giving them platforms to spout their nonsense, we eventually see it making its way into entertainment properties, which just recently occurred with SJW games like Battletech, where the developers prohibited gamers from making blonde-haired white characters, or in the Netflix show Lost In Space, where the husband was a literal cuckold. I can only imagine that the next set of complaints will be that the characters in comic book movies aren’t obese enough, or aren’t physically disabled enough.
