Do you feel Fancomic-y? Well, do ya?

I think one of these might need a content warning. So, um...

Content Warning! Violence against Women!


So, the DCnU Justice League book has a Shazam back-up. New backstory for Billy Batson. New backstory which turns Billy from this sweet natured little optimist to a tiny tool who has been kicked out of several foster homes.

Way to completely miss the point of the character, dudes.

Also, the Amazons are now mass-murdering slave owners.




So, back in the day, there was an issue of the X-men in which Wolverine tries to stop Rachel from breaking the 'X-men don't kill' rule... stabbing her to death.


I thought that it's kinda funny that Wolverine is back to being Mr Stabby Stabby Death Death and is friends with Rachel again. Although I guess it's less about him killing and more about him stopping others from killing. Though Rachel had totally killed before this. And Wolverine actually went back later and tried to murder the hell out of Selene.

So, in conclusion, I've totally lost track of what I was trying to say with this.

It's not universal, but some states consider rape by fraud to be a crime. What constitutes "fraud" in certain cases can be up to interpretation, though.

That's generally in cases where people have consented to*one specific sex act* with *one specific person* and have been deceived into participating in something quite different, though. Mostly it's to do with impersonating another, specific, person, as in the case of the identical twin who tricked his brother's girlfriend into sex, or like in the case of Assange where he was accused of deliberately removing a condom and continuing to have intercourse with a woman without asking if she was willing to have unprotected sex with him.

In the case of the Amazons, the sailors seem to be consenting to all the sexual stuff, but not consenting to the whole 'being murdered' thing.

Selfish gits, only in it for what fun THEY get out of it. They have the sex, but ask them for one tiny thing in return and they get all "But I don't WANT to die" and "Please don't murder me"

I know, right?! If anyone said something as selfish as that to me, I'd have to murder them just on principle.

I'm a very principled woman.

tis very true. i mean look at what they are getting? gorgeous women who know things they only dreamed of? who wouldn't willingly die for that?

well... i wouldn't only because i'd be more interested in Cupid... but that is TOTALLY beside the point, i would totally let HIM murder me!

Are they consenting? When I was reading, I thought they were being manipulated somehow, like with sirens.
