Simone keeps proving she's not reliable for other women
Boy, I sure hope a bunch of zealot bigot racist ignorant lawmakers decide it's a good idea to troll public bathrooms. Not creepy at all!— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) April 27, 2016
Boy, I sure hope women who want to try a career in comicdom don't turn to Simone for consultations, because she'd be no help at all. She currently stands out as one woman in the biz who's letting down self-respecting women everywhere by advocating a position that could enable predators to exploit openings. And she said this right after retweeting a post by a guy who'd written for Marvel:
@GailSimone I believe harassment is wrong and has no place in any industry. Specially, the comic-book industry.— Pablo Durá (@PabloDuraRuso) April 27, 2016
If Simone allegedly takes the same position there, why would she want to validate a standing that could provide predators with a window of opportunity in public facilities? A major embarrassment she is indeed. Her timing is pretty poor for the first tweet presented, coming as it is during a time when Eddie Berganza's lewd behavior of yore resurfaced in the news.
She also wrote:
Seriously. The writing of female characters in mainstream comics is SO VASTLY BETTER now that I have almost zero complaints. Mostly joy.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) April 27, 2016
Oh, tell us all about it. What about Mary Jane Watson? She certainly wasn't when Slott did his Dr. Octopus in Peter Parker's body atrocity. Speaking of which, has there ever been a lady who officially wrote Spider-Man's books? Probably not, and little or no chance there'll be one in the future, unless it's somebody who meets the current overlords' PC standards. Quite often, it's the female co-stars who fare even worse than the heroines do in the past decade. And why would somebody who's proven so knee-jerk have any complaints against her payrollers?
So there she goes again with her hypocritical standings, and ignorance for the poorest stories coming from the Big Two with lady cast members. She's never truly been a champion of inspiring and creative writing for lady cast members in superherodom.
