    How is it less masculine for a guy, especially like Thor to get with a big lady?


I don't think the issue is necessarily She-Hulk's height, its the fact that she is a complete grotesque. There is basically nothing feminine about her.

That said, culturally only 4% of WOMEN will date a guy who is shorter than them while (IIRC) about 28% of guys will date a taller woman. So clearly for 84% of the population its a big turn off.

    To be fair, I always thought the pair was really forced, but I don't really see it as less masculine for Thor to date a big freen lady with muscles.


Thor and Jen (of the past) when she was sexy would have made for a great couple.

Thor dating an angry, grotesque behemoth (PURPOSEFULLY) always drawn bigger and more muscular than him is completely idiotic and a clear attempt to emasculate the character (and by extension the fans).

Classically Thor was the alpha male who dated all the babes. Now he's a simp getting man-handled by a monster.

Google Image search "She-Hulk and Thor kiss" in every kiss she is drawn DOMINANT in size, muscularity and positioning. That's by design.

LGDB: Isn't this more a matter of taste. Like why does Thor have to be attracted to the same kind of ladies as you. Beauty's in the eye of the beholder right. And I don't know, I'd say there are presumably a few feminine things lol

LGDB: okay, but like what percentage of women are irradiated with gamma energy. Probably less.

LGDB: Well look at it this way. Who's to say which fans Thor should share taste with. I'm a attracted to guys, while you're attracted to Jessica Rabbit style ladies. If anything this is a pretty fair compromise.

LGDB: Ugh... Thor just killed Galactus with his hammer. I'd say his masculinity shouldn't be in question just because he digs a girl with big arms.

And maybe the design is so big women or girls, or ladies who don't have a classically petite figure can see a full bodied woman getting with a prince. You ever think of that, huh? lol

You really think it's a nice thing to describe women who are larger or more muscular as monsters?
