Also, I've deleted a few comments recently that were, I felt, misogynist in nature. I'm not interested in debating it, I'm not putting up with it on my comic site, and I neither need nor want misogynists reading my work. If anyone needs a place to trash women, I'm sure there is no shortage of places on the internet to find your outlets. This isn't one of them.
Damn it, was it because of Lauren and Sam again? Can't we just leave their relationship (issues, problems, success, and happiness) as parts of the very dynamic nature of human relationship? Things can be seen differently when viewed through individual lenses. Even if someone is "at fault" or "doing something wrong", that's part of being human. We don't make the right decision all the time, if there even is a right decision. Even the best of allies to women will probably do something that could be seen as misogynistic by someone else. LGBTQ allies will do something at least mildly -phobic at some point. It doesn't make us good or bad on its own, it makes us human.
And on that note, it's a work of fiction. As if any rant (including my own) or tirade will in any way change the story beyond making Gibson lose all faith and stop telling it (please, for the love of any and all deities you may or may not believe in, don't stop telling the story). To paraphrase and appropriate Christo, can we just be people? Can we just drink beer?
