I say keep it, because he is an appeaser. So was Winston Churchill and we don’t hate him. I know that’s not very helpful.
The problem is people are more protective of fictional peeps than of political peeps from before they were born.
I understand that Professor X’s disability makes him not perfectly privileged in every way, but there is something people are forgetting.
The man has a shit ton of money. Privilege is intersectional. A man who is physically disabled like Charles would have a lot of problems with places not being accessible to him. But his wealth would also protect him from numerous other problems faced by peeps with physical disabilities. And because of his money, many not accessible places would likely try to become accessible to try to win his money.
This is not minimizing the struggles he faces on a daily basis, but money shields you from much oppression, race based, based on your gender, or otherwise.
Yo, we’re considering changing the name of this blog as the current one might be too confrontational. We wanted to stir up a discussion about privilege in the X-Men fandom, using Professor X as the ur Xample, (ha puns. I’m so funny. *Ducks and avoids rotten tomatoes), but I worry the current name is putting up a face that makes it seem like we hate Professor X (which isn’t the case). Anyone got less confrontational name ideas?
Oh my god, did he really do this? No no no no no no no no………
WAIT, HE REALLY DID THIS?
See, this is why Magneto is the best.
No, he doesn’t.
I’m assuming they’re talking about First Class when he uses his powers to know what the girl wants to drink.
Yeah, all he did was use his ability to figure out what she wanted to drink. It didn’t go beyond that, and it didn’t actually result in him getting laid.
Like, it was a sort of dubious thing (tho note he’s still a rubbish flirt even with his ability) and I’m not sure that it was in the strictest sense ethical, but if people are reading implications of psychic manipulation/non-con into the situation then they are wrong.
They could have been talking about something else though. To the original submitter, could you please specify what they are talking about? Or does anybody else know where something like this occured? It does sound like something a bad writer would write. If nobody responds in say a week I’ll take the post down.

So, I haven’t finished the comic books, but according to this article, which I am reading to try to make more of these:
“Since you brought up Morrison, sort of, let’s start there,” I said as I handed back the bowl, into which she immediately thrust both fists. “Charles Xavier had always been a notable ‘mutant rights advocate’ without ever coming out of the atomic closet; his cover story was always that he was an expert on the ‘mutant problem.’ Everybody knew he studied mutants; they just didn’t know he studied them in his bathroom mirror every morning.
(If there were any inaccuracies in this, plz tell me.)
He actually does this in X-men the first movie.
I was watching X-Men (the first movie) and Professor X said that to Magneto. I had to make this for that.
[On a six wedged yellow and green background there is an image of Professor X in a yellow wheel chair wearing a green suit jacket, a white shirt and a blue tie. The caption, in white, above and below him reads ‘ll humans have mutations
