I’ve had multiple requests from people to make this post rebloggable. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure I was going to bother because continuing to talk about this is just so darn exhausting at this point. It’s very easy to feel like, “What’s the point?” When it comes to DC Comics and issues of gender…I think we are all feeling more than a little drained, tired and apathetic at this point in time. It’s tough to even find the energy to have the conversation because no matter what we do or say there are always people there ready to shout us down, tell us to be quiet and silence us. I know some really brilliant women who just flat out don’t have the strength to engage anymore and frankly, I’m nearing that point myself.
I want to make something very clear though: The writer of the the new Superman/Wonder Woman book, Charles Soule is a nice man and a good writer who was hired to do a job. I don’t particularly agree with some of the things he has said in his recent blog post (in fact, I think he’s missing some really key points) but there are ways to discuss these things with him and others while being civil. Does that mean you can’t debate? Argue? Challenge? Of course you can. But if you are going to engage with this man please keep that in mind. You can challenge and you can disagree but cursing at this man is something I want no part of. If you link my post to him with curse words, I want nothing to do with you.

That is one lucky auction-goer!
Getting one. Probably in blue. Girl-shaped.
did you hear that?
it was the sound of my heart breaking into pieces
If this doesn’t leave you in tears I fear for your soul.
NinjaSpyBoy has been watching my Lynda Carter Wonder Woman DVDs.
He loves the show. He thinks Wonder Woman is the best and amazing and has even said ‘she should have a movie!’.
This from a ten year old boy who also enjoys Star Wars and explosions and bad kung fu films and fighting games (sigh) and all the other things boys are ‘supposed’ to enjoy.
But he loves Wonder Woman. Thinks Zatanna is the coolest. Hawkgirl, Batgirl…he digs female heroes.
To which I can only say “Take that, DC.”
