What's this about She-Hulk?

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
Jennifer Walters has a complicated life as a single, 30-something attorney
who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch super-powered hulk.
Here's that cringe moment when Jennifer complains to Bruce Banner (Hulk) about how hard it is to be a woman and that she is "great at controlling her anger" (better than him) because all her adult life she has undergone humiliating catcalls and incompetent men talking down to her about her own job.
Well, it turns out some fans didn't take too kindly to Jen's complaints:
Not to get all nerdy, but what makes this monologue even worse is that Bruce Banner has faced astronomically more hardship than She-Hulk could even imagine. His mind was broken to pieces by a physically abusive father who literally beat Bruce's mother to death RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM. He also tried to kill himself but the Hulk would not allow him to, forcing him to continue living through the horrors of being the Hulk and constantly being on the run from the entire U.S. military. He's also suffered innumerable losses, either as an Avenger or in his own personal life. But sure, Jennifer Walters gets catcalled on the street. Boo hoo

“Self-pity is her super power.” Finally a superhero that everyone can identify with.     
- Jeff Stumpf

I can't believe any writers really thought that the daily life of a woman is actually greater rage inducing than losing the one you love, being trapped inside a monster you can't control, being shot into space against your will, being enslaved, being defeated by the person about to genocide half the galaxy, and being Mark Ruffalo.

The show follows the typical woke pattern: In order to prop up their woke heroes, all previous heroes (their mentors) who actually earned their battle-scars and have proven themselves worthy over the years (like the Hulk), must now be brought down and humiliated because woke is of course SUPERIOR even though they have done NOTHING to earn it. Here we see Bruce Banner in his Hulk form telling Jennifer Walters that her blood was able to heal his arm (the one damaged during the SNAP with Thanos). Jen's response is snippy: "Oh, because I'm better than you?"
This character is so unlikable, it makes the entire show unbearable.
 
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law currently garners an
Audience Score of 64% on RottenTomatoes.com at the time of this post.
