YEEEES. I’ve been arguing with this person all afternoon about Mary Jane and your post was amazing, and beautiful, and everything I tried to put into words and failed to put into words. They fail to understand that nobody is disagreeing that MJ is frequently a damsel in distress; the problem is that they’re acting as if that means her character has no purpose or meaning, and that’s absolutely wrong. -iputabirdonmyhead

Yes! That’s exactly it! I could have done without her character being put in danger quite as much, but that doesn’t mean her character in general isn’t absolutely amazing.

(And thanks!)
