I'm already sick of certain parts of the Iron Man fandom who are demonizing Pepper now that the third movie has come out. Just knock it off, fandom.

Demonizing Pepper?!? Fandom is so crazy sometimes.

Yep; there's a part of fandom, particularly on Tumblr apparently, that thinks Pepper is horrible for Tony because she got freaked out in the scene where the suit grabbed her.

I really don't get the need to bash characters in the name of a ship. Can't we all just get along, fandom?

I feel like a large majority of people hating on Pepper for that scene have never, EVER been in anything that's remotely comparable.

My husband has PTSD, and it can get bad sometimes, and he's swung on me a few times in his sleep. It freaked ME out, and I'm prior military, too. And that pales in comparison to an IRON MAN SUIT showing up and grabbing you. I love my husband, but if something even close to that level had happened, I'd have slept in the living room, too.

but she should have stayed with tony after the iron man suit scared the living shit out of her in the safety of her own bed!!1! she doesn't love him or she would have stayed with him, because she obviously doesn't have issues of her own and totally hadn't been just attacked by a robot!

fandom is ridiculous and incredibly one-sided in this is2g
