BY THE GODDESS!  

 Well, isn't that just like a woman.

Earth goddess, X-men Leader, Morlock champion, rebel punk, and master thief......but we all know what really matters.

Please , let that character be a skrull. I call on the goddess of comics and the saint of fangirls- let that character be a skrull...

THE LAST WORD (?)
As the Manstreamer who posted this image, I'll reiterate my original stance: getting worked up over having your hair questioned may be a familiar experience for many African American women, but I find it uncharacteristic of Storm. Once you've shaved your skull into a mohawk, you learn to deal. Of course, you're all welcome to have your own interpretations of the character. Thanks for commenting.

86 comments. On hair. I'm impressed.

There's even whole books about black hair, if you're interested.

Re: THE LAST WORD (?)
Out of genuine curiosity, is it generally only white people who are so invasive with the hair or are other non-black ethnicities also like this?

Interesting. Thank you.

Re: THE LAST WORD (?)
Hasnt that been the point of the entire comic panel, that white people really often are that invasive about black folks' hair?

Re: THE LAST WORD (?)
As a Portuguese white guy, I'd say that might relate to the frequency of black women straightening their hair in America compaired to Europe, though I might be wild-guessing since my contact is admitedly limited.

stop talking crazy talk.
next thing you'll be talking about how hair can be such a big deal for black women because they can lose their jobs for wearing it in natural, unprocessed styles an' shit.

Re: stop talking crazy talk.
But, i mean, you cant *kmow* that. I mean, you can interpret the character that way, of course. But.

Does this rule also count for pregnant women and comments about their post-pregnancy weight? I mean, they've been heavier than usual before, they should be cool with it, right?

Re: THE LAST WORD (?)
Maybe you should put aside your privilige and have a think about what people are saying to you.
