DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Wow, I’m never buying anything Tony Harris does again. Disgusting.
(Ex Machina, Starman artist: his wikipedia page. Click the image to be taken to the Facebook thread where he posted this.)

So after a lovely weekend of seeing women (including myself) argue with Dirk Manning on why posting this meme was a problem, now we have another comic creator lashing out at women who dare to go near the world of comics and geekdom but don’t pass their snuff test.
You know what?
FUCK THE SNUFF TEST. 
Fuck the dudes who want to think they can judge women by what they wear.
Fuck the dudes who think that they are the gatekeepers for comics based on their opinion of what is genuine or not.
Fuck the dudes who think that if a woman wears sexy clothing she’s a whore or a slut.
Fuck the dudes who think women “prey on men” because they smile at them.
And fuck the dudes who feel they can ascribe motives to women based on what is clearly a, um, skewed vision of a gender.
Oh and to the folks who support these dudes with “oh boy he’s really a nice guy, really super super nice.” Get a clue, they are really nice person who says or posts shitty, misogynistic stuff.
