Watch Out, Asgard – a Female Thor is in Town!
A female Thor.
That’s right! Chances are that you have already heard the news that Marvel has confirmed the development of a female incarnation of the popular godlike character on “The View” early Tuesday morning. Since that announcement was made, the picture has gone viral. Thousands of people from all over the world flocked to their personal and professional social media profiles to express their feelings.
Even though the concept of a female Thor shouldn’t shock anyone and (in a way) is just like having Supergirl, Batgirl or She-Hulk, more people than you think have reacted with slurs, degradign comments and an overall negative reaction. Here are just some of the responses we have found so far:

Thor is now a woman, so she’ll be paid less and do more work than the previous Thor.

every 30 days or so, it’s going to be really, really bad for New Thor’s enemies (and friends. and boyfriend. and The Avengers. and Loki.)
