The Mary Sue’s Favorite Comments of the Week: Feminist Mad Max Is More Relevant Than Ever

Hey girl, let's pretend that comic never happened.

In the wake of revelations about how the Mad Max comic turned out so terrible—that being one of the co-creators thinking rape can’t exist without being explicitly depictedreader The Themysciran felt we could not go without the above reminder from Feminist Mad Max.

And you may have heard that Rose McGowan was fired by her agent for tweeting about a pretty sexist casting note from an Adam Sandler production, so please enjoy this cathartic exchange about her (wonderful) propensity to speak out:

(Mary Sue Protip: an easy way to get your comment picked is to include a Gilmore Girls GIF.)

Meanwhile, packetdancer had some original reporting to do on the very same subject:

“[Sandler and his team] were not aware the casting director sent this note out,” a source close to Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, said. “They felt it was completely inappropriate and have made sure that it has not been sent out again.”

“I don’t believe you,” a commenter on The Mary Sue, a pop media site, replied. “I saw more than a few articles about Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous Six, including on this very site, and based on those this seems like something he’d think was totally appropriate.”

In happier news, our silly Photoshop and headline about Channing Tatum’s feelings on his upcoming Ghostbusters project (“Channing Tatum Is Pregnant With Ghostbusters, and It’s Getting Uncomfortable”) inspired spirited discussion of Tatum’s potential ghostbabies and more in the comments, which was pretty much the entire intent:

And finally, in all the horrors that the Sony hack bestowed upon the company—leaks of horrible racism, potential upcoming projects, and being forced to use ’90s technology *shiver*—one truly topped them all: speaking to coworkers.

This is a true workplace hazard. The Mary Sue editorial team communicates almost exclusively by chatroom, and we prefer it that way. When I tried to ask a question with my actual human voice once, it incited editor-in-chief Jill Pantozzi to gnaw off my left thumb. True story.
