This random guy on the street, looking at my Avengers t-shirt: It's funny how so many girls are into them these days just to impress boys
Me: Well, I didn't know that girls couldn't like something independent of what boys thought of them.
Guy: Seriously? You're telling me you like the Avengers for real? Alright, who is your favourite Avenger then?
Me calmly: Alright, well that depends on the line-up, but it's between the Wasp and Quicksilver.
Guy rolls his eyes: See, this is what I mean, stop pretending to like something you don't even understand. Quicksilver is an X-men, not an Avenger, it's a whole different movie-series. And the Wasp isn't a thing, you're just making things up now. Just admit it, you're just pretending.
Me, still calm: Oh you meant the movie. First of all, let me clarify. I thought you meant the general Avengers multiverse, movies, comics and cartoons, seeing as my t-shirt is a comic reference. Because The Wasp (pointing to her on my t-shirt) was a founding member of the Avengers, she was there even before Captain America was revived and joined. Secondly, Quicksilver aka Pietro and his sister Wanda aka Scarlet Witch aren't X-men, they were part of the Brotherhood of Mutants before they turned and joined the second line-up of Avengers. They're all Marvel characters, they move around a bit, it's the same multiverse.
Me, no longer very calm: Thirdly, telling me that I've been reading MARVEL comics religiously since I was 6 years old to attract boys is not a valid argument. I am not some sort of robot. I am perfectly capable of enjoying things for myself. Look. I could look down on you for only liking the movie and not being an expert on it. But I don't. You don't have to be an expert on something to like it. The same way you don't have to be a boy to enjoy superhero comics. So how about we not insult each other for liking the same damn thing, is that a good plan?
Guy: Oh my God, you are such a nerd.
Me, calm having flown the nest: listen you little misogynistic pig, if I don't know about the topic, I'm an idiot, if I do, then I'm a nerd? This topic is way beyond your IQ, and I'm wasting my time here. You can leave.
Today I got into an argument with my Aunt because she was upset that her daughter was dating a girl so I said
"Do you really think you should fall in love with someone’s genitals over their soul? Because that’s shallow and sad"
And my 75 year old grandmother who was sitting in her rocking chair, and who hasn’t said a word for the past hour screamed “OH BURN” and hit my aunt with a fly swatterMy gramma is a special lady okay.
Grandmas are the best

men who relentlessly pursue people with inappropriate messages on ok cupid are forced to read everything they’ve said in front of a live studio audience.
ugh do you know someone who’s so cute you just want to slap them and push them off a cliff
