So I logged onto the Marvel online store on my iPad store and this was on the featured page.  (The full cover is here if you want to see it.)  I did a double-take because I kind of couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  A pregnant woman, in a spread-eagle being molested by aliens.
I clicked on the cover and it brought me to the summary of Wolverine and the X-Men #5:

“Kitty Pryde is pregnant?!? Could it have to do with the billion Brood that have shown up?”

So…  Not only is Kitty pregnant (which I don’t have a problem with, btw), she seems to be pregnant with alien babies that are spreading her legs.  I just… I just…  The words escape me.  It is covers and ideas for comics like this that make everyone judge comics as juvenile and sexist.  There is no way in the World I would pick up an X-Men comic with a cover like this.  I would be embarrassed to be seen anywhere holding a comic with a cover like this.
Come on Marvel… really?

Oh I saw this yesterday when I walked in and I was pissed. 
pissed.
"Hey guys! Guys! Let’s take one of the smartest, strongest women in the whole of the marvel U and DEMEAN THE SHIT OUT OF HER ON THE COVER OF THIS BOOK WHICH PEOPLE HAPPEN TO ENJOY!" 
I was loving this book. I can’t even bring myself to read this issue.
