Hell, if I'm gonna read/write that kind of comic erotica, I'd rather see Widow x Sharon, Rogue x Storm, and She-Hulk x Tigra x Jocasta.

Well of course you would choose those same sex pairings because you're a straight male. And of course many women choose same sex pairings who are (primarily) male. Hell, the very first fan fiction I read as a kid was the original slash, Kirk/Spock.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
