Friends and Followers of this Blog. You’re probably aware that Hell Yeah Superman and Wonder Woman stands accused over at dcwomenkickingass tumblr of being
” openly insulting and offensive to other women in comics fandom and it has repeatedly included misogynistic and degrading comments about Lois Lane and even worse it has placed judgements on all of the women who love her. It’s a site that has quite literally attempted to police feminism through misogynistic statements and treated other female fans who have questioned the behavior and asked the behavior to stop with extreme disrespect and insults.”
Initially we ignored this here, and attempted a dialogue over at dcwomenkickingass page via Disqus. Suddenly our comments and those of other contributors and friends of this blog were greeted with a warning that comments were being moderated.
These comments subsequently didn’t appear.
Currently some comments are getting through, and this is welcome, although the reality that previous attempts have failed isn’t encouraging.
Was this cockup or conspiracy? We’ll let you decide.
Yet this isn’t the reason why I post this quote.
” I do have a problem with the posts involve derogatory language about other female characters. It’s a shame that you have to take that tact. And that attitude is certainly not any kind of trip to obscurity. There’s another Wonder Woman shipping site that is VERY popular despite displaying homophobic attitudes and using proxy servers on my site .”
The implication is clear - that the success of this new to tumblr blog is because you our followers accept - and or even approve of the “derogatory language about other female characters”
Of course we refute these allegations as untrue - but in the spirit of the ideals Superman and Wonder Woman were created to embody, it is beholden on us to be open and honest about these allegations.
These posts have been flagged on dcwomenkickingass’s blog as offensive.
The bottom line is this, those who liked and or reblogged any of these posts also stand accused.
We accept that we’ve used comics to poke fun at the characters involved, but not that any of this was intended to be, or was offensive to the reasonably minded.
We’re been open and honest about this because we genuinely want to create a fun blog that celebrates our favourite characters.
We do this as much for you as we do this for ourselves. So again we remind everyone that we accept ASK and provide an easy to use comment service via Disqus.
Thanks for following.
