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.

"... 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

And what are your concerns? That somebody who made a joke you don't approve of might make a film? I'm sorry, I want to support equality, but the concept that anything that doesn't follow your doctrine isn't allowed is the opposite of that. Go tell a joke that belittles men, see if anybody really cares. Focusing on things that don't matter really distracts from our important issues.

I assume you are referring to the post outlining the incredibly tasteless, misogynistic and homophobic remarks that James Gunn, director of the Marvel’s upcoming movie made? 

My concern is that a movie will be made by Disney, a company I hold stock in, by a man who would use tasteless, misogynistic and homophobic language without, it appears, any concern. Well, until people found it and called him out. Then he tried to hide it.

Additionally I’m not sure what your statement “I want to support equality” has to do with anything. And your definition of equality is … not really resembling anything close to logic. 

While you don’t think concern about the use of sexist and homophobic language by public figures aren’t important issues, you might be surprised to find out others do.

In fact, I think you’ll be finding out pretty fast.

  6. grahamburglar said: James Gunn is both writing and directing the movie — meaning it *will* reflect all his opinions. Neither Disney or Marvel have ever supported misogyny or homophobia, it’s not part of their vision. But it’s clearly part of James Gunn’s vision.
