FACEBOOK: Women in Refrigerators

0

If someone wants to view the world through gender goggles then that’s their business, but I imagine it must make for a rather sad and unfulfilling existence.

And instead of criticising violence against women in mature-label comics books (and related media), how about coming out in support of REAL victims (+/- vaginas) of ACTUAL violence?

I guarantee people living under the constant threat of ISIS butchery don’t sit around arguing about the shot that shattered Barbara Gordon’s spine (28 years after the fact) or about The Killing Joke being made into an R-rated feature. And when they hear the term “women in refrigerators” what comes to mind is neither “gender violence” nor Green Lantern comics from the mid nineties, but whether their wives and daughters can be accounted for, and how long it’s been since they’ve seen the neighbors.
