I’ve never seen the hearts pointed in opposite directions like that, interesting.
Women read comics. Anyone at all engaged in social media knows this. Women read comics and are a driving force behind fandom. I think I could call them the driving force behind fandom and put up a convincing argument. Just think about it: what fandoms have driven America crazy in the last decade? Could anyone dissuade me from saying that they were Harry Potter, Twilight and the Hunger Games? “Avatar” may have put butts in theater seats, but you don’t hear about it… ever. No one is immersed in the world of “Avatar” except James Cameron and people who enjoy wearing Na’vi Zentai suits. “The Avengers” was pretty darn huge and, if Tumblr is any indication, a whopping portion of the people driving that fandom online do not possess a Y chromosome. Women engage in fandom to levels that men do not. When women get behind something, their sheer numbers and passion force it into the mainstream. That’s why you can name the actor who plays that werewolf kid in “Twilight” and probably sing at least the chorus to one Justin Bieber song. What do tween boys like? I have no clue. Sports? Probably sports.
and yet men remain the most marketed demographic for just about everything.
I’m pretty sure the only men who spend more time thinking about DC than women on Tumblr are the men who actually work there.
I was just thinking about this the other day. It’s very true.
When I was in Old Fort Worth in 18 and 83
Some old Mexican cowboy come stepping up to me
Said I’ll hire you, young fella, how would you love to go
And to spend the season working in those hills of Mexico
Well having no employment back to him I did say
‘Tis according to your wages, according…
- Tucker: These kids are coming out here and killing themselves all over the woods!
- Dale: Oh my god, that makes so much sense!
- Tucker: We got to hide all sharp objects!
