Spider-Man asks about Mockingbird's feminist agenda?

That's what this sugary and not very honest Bleeding Cool article seems to say, as it looks like Marvel, once again, is putting their willingness to steer away from politics in question. First, here's a pretty laughable statement about what happened when the cover for the otherwise unsuccessful Mockingbird solo book came out:
Nevertheless, it was attacked as everything that was wrong with Marvel Comics, turning some of their superhero comics into titles that women and girls might be more likely to read. And then seized on by others as everything that could be right about Marvel Comics — for exactly the same reason.
Neither claim made is a valid reason for why the book was so awful. Why would any women/girls in the right frame of mind want to read a retcon wherein Bobbi Morse is said to have cheated on her past husband, Clint Barton/Hawkeye?

As for the news the allusions to the politicized cover are coming again, here's where it gets really annoying:
Because I get the nod from folk at San Diego Comic-Con that The Amazing Spider-Man #789 will feature Peter Parker sleeping in Mockingbird’s apartment. On the couch, of course — and wearing her “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” shirt.
And no doubt in yet another effort by Dan Slott, Joe Quesada, Axel Alonso and company to troll Mary Jane Watson fans. This is something that Marvel otherwise failed to address in their recent PR announcements, the reports of more success for the Renew Your Vows miniseries notwithstanding. Well, it's clear now that even Spider-Man's series is still not in good health, and therefore not worth returning to. Quesada and Alonso have only proven once more that their continued presence at Marvel spells disaster.
