When Jann Jones acted as apologist for DC
At one point, Jones gave an emotional defense against the idea that – as one independent creator put it to her – DC is “rape central.” She was appalled and offended by that description and when she quoted it, so was the rest of the panel. As Jones tells it, there was a lot of thought and care put into Identity Crisis and Jones had nothing but praise for her experience at DC so far.Even if DC hasn't been stooping to misogyny at every turn even now, Identity Crisis itself most definitely was a standout example of misogyny in motion with its one-sided depiction of virtually every female cast member there. And she had the blatant gall to defend that? For shame. If they really did put a lot of care into the production, they wouldn't have treated the rape of Sue Dibny so trivially compared to the much greater concern being given to Dr. Light's "lobotomy".
So not only did Jones take the role of apologist for DC at the convention, as a representative of their staff, she also acted like the editorial/publishing staff were the victims, not women's rights. Well, there's another modern day contributor to comics whom I no longer have any respect for either. Her biggest error was failing to admit that as human beings, they're capable of making mistakes, and by vehemently refusing to admit that the execution of IC was reprehensible, she only furthered the perception that the staff think they never have to say they're sorry.
