I went out with a friend tonight and we got on the topic of Spiderwoman cover. He couldn't understand why there was outrage, because Spiderwoman has always been this way. She's always been sexual, etc. That the outraged was misplaced.

I tried to explain it using the example of gay marriage. That it's always been between a man and a woman, so why should it change? I think I got through to him, but honestly... I feel like my argument could've been sharper. Thus, I've decided to ask you.

If someone came to you, a dear friend, and said that they didn't think it was worth getting outraged about. The specific argument is about how it's always been that way and that it doesn't matter that much. How do YOU handle it?
