There was a gimmick the Uncanny X-Men editors were doing in the mid 80s. Having an X-Men teammate “answer” the letters readers would send in to 387 Park Avenue South, New York, NY. In this particular issue, it’s Rogue’s turn. So she answers questions bout the issue she joined the team, Uncanny X-Men #171.
Today she’s one of the most popular X-Men, but at the time Rogue was not well liked and her inclusion on the team was in question. Needless to say, this made for one of the more fascinating Letter’s Pages to read, especially when keeping all of Rogue’s history in perspective.
Recently I’ve seen a couple of posts and articles that basically follow the idea of: If a guy compliments you on the street (catcalls) why can’t you just accept it as a compliment instead of acting like a brat and a bitch and being upset.

There is also an underlying assumption with this crap that I’m dressing for someone other than myself. That I have to dress for random strangers because they’re going to pass judgement on me based on it. I am dressing they way I would like. It likely has nothing to do with you person I don’t know and have never met. I do not care if you think that I am a fate whale or that these jeans make my ass look great. I don’t know you and yelling at me from a car or from across the street is not going to change that.
