My friend, Ash, shared this picture on her Facebook.
There's not a lot I can add to make this statement more perfect than it already is. This is exactly my problem with the attitudes being shown in comic books.
SFF fandom exploded recently with the whole Jonathan Ross fiasco. One of the issues raised was that the community is currently struggling to shed the image of us all being a pack of mouth-breathing sleaze-balls who harass any woman that appears within a hundred yards. It's a serious problem, and it's our responsibility to show a different side to the community.
Just as it's the responsibility of those who create the things we enjoy to shed the impression that comics (or any form of entertainment associated with geek fandom) is a boys-only club, where female characters exist to be exploited and help us get our rocks off.
