LGBT propaganda forced into WW spinoff title
Wonder Woman -- one of the world's most recognizable and popular superheroes -- breaks boundaries in the DC Universe by becoming the first-ever superhero in DC Comics history to officiate a same-sex marriage.There's CBR for you, pushing their own political outlook into their own reporting. The writer who exploited WW (and from what I can tell, the Hurricane Katrina disaster too) for injecting his personal politics so blatantly told Huffington Post:
[...] Wonder Woman proceeds to officiate the wedding of a couple she met while helping with relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina. Of course, in today's context it's a huge deal to have a superhero with as much recognition as Wonder Woman officiating a same-sex marriage, but as the hero herself says to Superman in the story: "Clark, my country is all women. To us, it’s not ‘gay’ marriage. It’s just marriage." Words we should all live by.
The wedding issue also marks [Jason] Badower's DC Comics debut. The artist told The Huffington Post in an interview that Wonder Woman is "the most logical candidate in the DC Universe," to officiate same-sex marriages because her creator, William Moulton Marston, specified that she originally hailed from an island inhabited only by women. Hence, he said, it's likely that Wonder Woman's mother would have officiated and authorized similar ceremonies.Yeah, Badower said, but did Marston? Whatever Marston's view of homosexuality, he didn't inject it into his writing, and didn't shove it down the audience's throats either. From what I can tell, all these years, the DC Amazons were written as an otherwise asexual race when it comes to each other, and successive writers till now didn't shove their world view down everybody's throats that badly just to cater to SJWs. So Badower shouldn't be trying to say he knows Marston better than we do.
Badower said he also really wanted to reference current affairs -- specifically, the U.S. Supreme Court's June 26 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide -- in the story.Here we have yet another lemming stuffing his politics in very obvious manner, and doubtless has no respect for those who dissent. In fact, if he so thinks the Supreme Court's ruling is fully logical, does he also think those who object to the practice and ideology are all 100 percent invalid, even after all the trouble they've gone through? And will he try to exploit WW or another DC superhero to bash them without reservations? As if that weren't bad enough, he even says something pretty fishy next:
"I saw this Wonder Woman story as an incredible opportunity to have one of the most recognizable, iconic characters in the world to be among the first to step forward and officially endorse this new law," he said. "But I thought, let's not just have Wonder Woman embrace this new law, let's have her celebrate it."
As to whether or not Wonder Woman might one day find herself in a same-sex relationship, Badower pointed to her longtime, heterosexual love interest Steve Trevor. With Wonder Woman often rescuing Trevor in a gender-reversed take on the "damsel-in-distress" motif, he said, "The pressures she must have felt from that unconventional relationship would, unfortunately, be familiar to many people today."Wow, he sure must disapprove of the notion she'd fall in love with a man or that she'd be the one to rescue him, eh? Because he sure comes off sounding that way. What's really unfortunate is that someday, so long as they're under the kind of publishers they are, WW in a lesbian relationship will turn up, and all for the sake of publicity the publishing staff doesn't deserve.
He then said, "Her courage in the face of that is an incredible attribute we can all learn from."
I looked at the artwork samples available, and while the cover drawing is okay, the character design inside for WW, drawn by Badower to boot, looks disgusting. It almost makes her look androgynous, or simply unfeminine. It's also not a good type of publicity to have when there's a movie in the works. What if this ends up dispiriting the wider crowd out there? There's always a chance it could.
