DC Boards. Fish. Barrel.
When complaining about being banned, be sure to compare gay people to Dark Lords of the Sith. For background, the poster in question apparently made several anti-gay comments, and at one point said that his son would be "dead to him" if he turned out to be gay: If he was to make such a change then he wouldn't be the same son I knew. Star Wars Ep III is a great example. When Obi Wan walked away from Darth Vader because he changed. To Obi Wan, Anakin was dead to him, from a certain point of view. I guess that makes Obi Wan a bigot because he's a Sith hater.
Why Batwoman can't be a super-hero: A person finds him-/her-self with physical attributes which he/she did not ask for, may not want, and wich involve considerable consequence. Yet, in the world of superheroes, it is dereliction of duty to not use these attributes to make a difference. So, a person who finds him-/her-self with the physical ability to perform one of the major miracles in the Univers--to create life--and does nothing with the equipment provided, is flouting one of the basic rules of superdom. It runs exactly contrary to the entire basis of superheroes to have a being endowed with certain equipment to refuse to use that equipment the way it was designed to be used simply because that individual's personal pleasure buttons are not pushed by so doing. A superhero has, say, superstrength. This hero also has a female form. To have this person use her superpower, her physical attribute of superstrength, to help others, as she was designed to do, and then turn around and refuse to use her other superpower, to creat life and nurture it the way she was designed to do, means that the character is inconsistent on a very basic level. You can't have it both ways. Either the superhero accepts the duties that her physical attributes confer on her, or she is no hero. A lesbian superhero is a contradiction in terms. The new Batwoman is an unworkable concept; to make it workable, they should have her come to terms with all of her physical equipment, and accept her fate as who she is.
Oh look, it's Obi-Wan again: I still say give the opposite sex another try, there has to be a girl for you guys if you would just stop being picky. All those women that say all the good men are gay or married. Stop being gay and make a woman happy. You can still act gay but be straight about it. Look at Motley Crue in the 80's...gay as hell looking and got all the woman they wanted. See, it's happen before. Don't get me wrong I think you gays are funny as hell and I like the Queer Eye guys and Elton John but it's all still taboo to me no matter how many time try to justify it all. I would love to be total tolerent but as long as my instincts tell me it's not right then I gonna go with that. At least you guys aren't radical muslims. But we can't change the weather and we can't change each other.
What a charmer! Here's some more of his wit: In that case God can go to the active volcano and the rest of the world cane live as we wish. Gays can be married....wait, if the Bible is nothing then why get married???? That means Micheal Jackson was doing nothing wrong with those boys. Rapist are people too, they need their space to express themselves. Let's get the pot party going and LAY ME DOWN SOME RAILS BOYS!!! Might as well bring back slavery so we can get things done around here. All the alpha gays, lesbians and males can gather up the femi-males and femi-women and make a chain of ***** houses where the empty prisons are. And crazy Jack can finally get that 3 year old Sally all to himself.
Here's a thread on writers "ruining" characters: Morrison on Seven Soldiers. Loved the classic Seven Soldiers of Victory too much to even consider this hodge-podge assortment of DCU regulars and others, to take it seriously.
Frank Millar and Batman Me and my friends agree that frank millar did ruin batman with his batman returns, even though its all good now. I makes batman do stupid things, even now in All-Star Batman, FRank Millar writes stupid stories, that mess with batman's image. I mean the old creators even told him he messed the character up, even though people praise him for his writing.
Good ole Geoff ruined... Hal- he's now an idiot and a jerk. Guy- all the character developement he'd recieved since the death of ICe? Out the window. He's now an idiot and a jerk. Jakeem Thunder- Where to begin? Is this even the same guy Morrison created? The General- knocked out by a jeep?! Winnick did a number on... Connor Hawke- now he's "Ollie's nice son", instead of, oh, I dunno, a character with depth and personality. Kyle Rayner- Seriously, he made Kyle such a chore to read that even I, a huge fan, skipped his run. AJ Lieberman trashed... Hush- boy, he used to be cool . Prometheus- he used to be even cooler
Wait, somebody thought Hush was cool?
Peter Milligan on Gambit. yes, let's take one of the coolest X-Men, and destroy him. good going guy...
Wait, somebody thought Gambit was cool?
Points for this thread title alone: "Infinite Crisis" ...should have been called "Politically Correct Crisis"... I am all for ethnically diverse characters. But, in one fell swoop DC has retooled a bunch of heroes to fill politically correct quota. -Atom replace with an asian. -Batwoman is a lesbian -Blue Beetle is now hispanic -Firestorm is now black -Johnny Lightning is now black -The Spectre is now black
I'm pretty sure Johnny Lightning is a company that makes over-priced toy cars. Jakeem Thunder has been black for years now.
Let's check back in on Obi-Wan: I am no longer alowed to talk about gays anymore because it's against the DC MOD's law. They only want one side of the story so the censor anything they feel is not furthering their aganda. So, no I have to roll over and get man raped. I must obey and force myself to be with another man so I won't be a bigot. I must cast all women aside or I will be called intolerent. Then I will have to force my way into an organization that doesn't alow gays so I can get my hands on little boys. Yes, master.
