The SJWs turn against Gail Simone over a joke in Plastic Man

It can happen any time, to pretty much any leftist as much as rightist. It's now happened to Gail Simone, as she discovered the perpetually unhappy, unsatistifed leftists for social justice have turned against her as well, over jokes they didn't like in her new Plastic Man solo book. And maybe unsurprisingly, she apologized to these fools, over elements that are actually quite tasteless nevertheless:











Considering how thin-skinned they're being, I don't think she should've apologized to such victimologists whose ideology is full of contradictions. That said, the material I read on the BIC site looked so heavy-handed, it's insulting all the same, because, if men are being made to look more feminine than women are at the moment in mainstream comics like these, that's why the whole Plastic Man story falls flat and isn't very funny at all.

Still, it demonstrates perfectly the SJW mentality of turning against their own and throwing them under the bus when they're looking for any petty reason to be offended. And look how they may turn this into another case of modifying a pamphlet story for its trade editions, only here, unlike the case with GI Joe and Centipede, it's for the wrong reasons, even if the story's visual "humor" is still insulting to the intellect.

Things have also changed quite a bit since Simone wrote Birds of Prey in the mid-2000s, with Ed Benes as artist. Today, the chances they'd use his style could be far less likely, and she's probably disowned her work there altogether.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
