  1. Because defining certain things as exclusively...

    Because defining certain things as exclusively for men is the very definition of sexism. And I don't feel it's necessary to argue why sexism is a bad thing.

    And people have been making these...
  2. This is incorrect. The rape threats are just a...

    This is incorrect. The rape threats are just a more extreme version of the mentality that says that comics are an exclusively male domain. The rape threats represent this mentality taken to its...
  3. Why is that the relevant question? Why are you...

    Why is that the relevant question? Why are you asking how men would benefit from more women reading comics, and not how women would benefit, or how everyone would benefit?

    Also, I think everyone...
  4. See, this is exactly the problem: Klinton has...

    See, this is exactly the problem: Klinton has this sense that DC Comics is "his house" and that he gets to control access to who can have valid opinions on DC Comics and who can't. Can the rest of...
  5. So then who gets to decide what's appropriate in...

    So then who gets to decide what's appropriate in DC Comics? You? Again, this attitude is exactly why some women don't think comics fandom is a welcoming space.

    Why should your opinions about DC...
  6. Also, I think this thread needs to be closed...

    Also, I think this thread needs to be closed already. It's full of exactly the sort of sexist attitudes that Janelle Asselin was complaining about. These attitudes are a disgrace to the CBR forums...

    I notice that people who say things like this always happen to be men.
  8. I don't want to engage directly with Brian from...

    I don't want to engage directly with Brian from Ottawa's response because it displays a disturbing level of ignorance about the existence of racism. I just want to say one thing:



    I was quoted...
  9. I don't know this for sure, but my impression is...

    I don't know this for sure, but my impression is that Bad Girl comics are popular among women because they have female protagonists who are strong and proactive characters -- unlike most DC comics.
  10. Attitudes like yours are part of the reason why...

    Attitudes like yours are part of the reason why comics is such a hostile space for women. When you describe women who are concerned about sexism as "angry as men," or when you describe anti-sexist...

    Also, I notice how there don't seem to be any women contributing to this thread. Has CBR become a less female-friendly space than it used to be? And if so, might this have something to do with the...

    Look, people, if you are complaining about Brett White's alleged sexism against men, rather than trying to find ways to address sexual harassment, then YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM because you are...

    The way people are talking about this controversy...

    The way people are talking about this controversy on CBR has made me ashamed of being a former CBR Forums moderator. There are just no two sides to this issue. This is not a topic about which...

    This is the most important speech delivered to a comics industry audience in the past ten years. I notice no one in this thread is discussing what I think is Eric Stephenson's crucial claim -- that...
  15. Because it is a women's rights issue.

    Because it is a women's rights issue.

    Thanks very much for actively moderating this thread. I realized when I started this thread that it had the potential to lead to offensive replies, but I felt it was something that needed to be...

    I'm not interested in debating whether his behavior was inappropriate or not; I think it's pretty obvious that it was. What I think is a more interesting question is, what can we as fans do to try to...
  19. Dude, not everything is sexual harassment, but if...

    Dude, not everything is sexual harassment, but if you actually read MariNaomi's account, what he did to her clearly qualifies as sexual harassment under any reasonable definition.
  20. Scott Lobdell sexually harasses MariNaomi, makes non-apology apology

    Yesterday, a female creator named MariNaomi reported having been sexually harassed by a fellow panelist at a panel on queer comics:

    I'm writing a book about exactly this topic. My short answer is, because in comics, the experience of reading and owning the physical, printed artifact is important, more so than in other media. It's...

    Are there going to be any CBR community-related events at this year's Comic-Con? Is anyone even going?

    I was just reading The Witching Hour #75, and the first story had some really impressive artwork, with bizarre panel structures and expressive lettering. But it was uncredited and the GCD didn't know...
