Hm never thought my story written while sleep deprived would elicit responses.
The worker who made the comments is the sweetest guy and had no idea who was going to be there, the whole gathering was very laid back. Hell you could call it a kick back. The rant didn't come from the fact that he was a crazed wonder woman fan but more from a feminists view point. (he likes tearing into characters =/ )
Up until this post I whole heartedly agreed with what you were saying. Some fans out there take their opinion way to far. I've seen a fight break out in my comic shop because of the opinion on Final Crisis. Nerdiest fight ever simply because it started over a comic book. That kind of zeal over characters can be detrimental for the relationship between the fans and the writers. For example when gail simone was flamed right out of Scans Daily for committing the tired "bury your gays" trope. Later revealed that it wasn't as it seemed.
NOW, your last paragraph. This is scans_daily. It is a community where it states in the beginning:
Founded by girl geeks and members of the slash fandom, scans_daily strives to provide an atmosphere which is LGBTQ-friendly, anti-racist, anti-ableist, woman-friendly and otherwise discrimination and harassment free.
What we like or who we are is specific, rare in a sexist media outlet but we remain reading because we love comics. What we like isn't mainstream for the most part. Just like any other comic forum online. I can't understand why you keep insulting this community when most of the details on the story weren't given, or when many of the responses here have been simply "lol" or stated their opinion without blurting out a curse word, something real common in mainstream forums.
Now if that still offends you, us being way nerdy (and by the looks of it from other posters, loaded with income) with our comic preferences, go back to the industry and your Motrin induced sleep.
Now i'm just going to be avoiding this entire website for a few weeks since i'm bound to get kicked out for this rant =/
