Because girls never exclude other girls or never exclude guys by claiming "safe space," right? Jesus christ, I get that you have a daughter and you're looking out for her, but that doesn't mean that women have it any worse than guys now that you're focusing on one. Wake the fuck up. What sex drops out of school at great rates? What sex has the highest poverty and suicide rate? What sex is less likely to get into college? Men. So stop being a mouthbreathing white knight.
I love when righteous indignation hides behind anonymity. You poor, poor boy. You are beyond wrong, and that you cannot see why, that you cannot see how the made-up data you cite itself is part of the problem, is part of the bias, only makes me pity you.
You’re a coward.
You’re exactly the problem I’m describing.
And you have no leg to stand on. I am tired of you, I am tired of your type.
Good luck with what I am sure will be a long and miserable life.
Rucka is suffering no fools today. Grab some popcorn or your favorite snack and watch a person advocate for their beliefs in an exquisite manner.
And comic fans can be amongst the most passionate types of fans I’ve ever found, and sometimes that passion is brought to life in the most beautiful of ways. Look at the community ‘Sex Criminals’ (‘Brimpers’) and ‘Captain Marvel’ (‘Carol Corps’) have created around their books; those fans are fonts of pure, unbridled enthusiasm.
It doesn’t matter if they’re recreating comic covers or talking about the time they found porn in the woods or having incredibly positive events at Emerald City ComiCon, they are what we should all hope to amount to as fans of the medium. They take their love of the books that matter to them and they externalize that in all of the best ways. They make people want to find out why they love those books so much.
Which is why it makes it so frustrating that some comic fans take that love and turn it into the worst form of negativity, the type that is designed to take others down to their level and to make them feel pain in one way or another.
