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

Director of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”: UGH

You can go over to the Mary Sue and read more but here’s the short version. Over the last 24 hours a post the James Gunn, the director helming the next Marvel movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” created about “The 50 Superheroes You want to have sex with” was dug up.

And what a post it is! Filled with the kind of language I am sure the management of Disney who own Marvel will be thrilled to see!

Beware this is pretty awful slut shaming language with a extra dose of disgusting homophobia.

It goes on. 

And on.

And like many of these polls (such as one run by a “humor” site whose name I will not repeat as to not have their followers come back and harass me after I called them out and ended their fun.) it’s not funny. 

Of course, when the word starting spreading and the shit hit the fan the writer, director James Gunn, did what many people do when caught doing something that perhaps they regret - he deleted it.

Sadly, as smart a dude as he may be, he wasn’t aware of Google Cache.

So what to do? 

Well you could plan on boycotting the movie. But that won’t be out until 2014.

So in the short term perhaps a note to Disney and let them know your concerns. I would think this gentleman might be a good person to send a polite letter:
