Asking for trouble

Someone I know posted a link to this on Facebook recently, and it was all I could do not to smash my keyboard in response.

I refuse to tell you what the actual website was on principle, because SERIOUSLY????

Let me list the things that are wrong with this:
1. She's been to the gym.
2. No one has time to tan when they're saving the world.
3. SHE'S BEEN TO THE GYM.
4. NO ONE HAS TIME TO TAN WHEN THEY'RE SAVING THE WORLD.
5. WHO. GIVES. A. FUCK. 

Seriously. She's still gorgeous. And she's still lethal as hell. If I were the indescribably moronic individual who wrote this, I'd be watching my back. Because if it's not Black Widow coming after you? It'll be Hawkeye. One can only hope they'll decide to sell ringside seats, because I would pay money to see that. So. Much. Money.

  1. Oh my God, even you are missing the point. BLACK WIDOW'S JOB IS NOT TO LOOK PRETTY. HER JOB IS TO SAVE ALL OUR SORRY ASSES. I'd like to see you, the dude who wrote this, or anyone else reading this do what she does. (Unless one of the other Avengers happens to be reading this, or like Agent Hill or someone...in which case, yeah, you can do what she does.) She could be ugly and still kick ass, because she's a frakking SUPERHERO and contrary to popular believe, one doesn't actually have to be physically attractive to every passing schmuck in order to save the world.

    Don't make EXCUSES for her not being hot by saying "well she was at the gym, no one looks good when they're all sweaty." Being attractive is totally irrelevant. It's not something that needs to be justified at all.

    Why do you think Widow or Hawkeye will come after the so-called journalist? Do you think they'll be offended that someone dared make unflattering remarks about Widow's looks? Nah, I doubt they'll really care. Because...I don't know how many times I can say it...BEING PRETTY ISN'T HER JOB.

  2. And why would Hawkeye have to defend her? Because he's got a penis? Does that make him more special or more deserving or respect or...you get my point.
