    Is Silk a Mary Sue? I don't think so. I want to see more than one issue to make that call. Also IMO, if you don't see it right away, it's most likely not a Mary Sue, but people see what they want to...

    When people follow me around the store, I turn to them and say "You're my personal shopper? Great!" Or I would pick out the cheapest thing in the store that I could use and pay for it with a 50 or...

    I had no idea. That is terrible. It sounds that you have recovered from that, which is a good thing. Heated debate is one thing, but dog piling someone on the 'net is wrong. I sincerely hope that...
  5. Fair enough.

    Fair enough.

    Actually, privilege is the correct term here.

    Privilege is the idea that in human society, some groups benefit from unearned,...

    Yes, the reader plays a huge part. We all have biases. Some stronger than others but we all still have them. It colors our outlook on everything. Even our interpretation of what's on the page. For...

    It's like Remender said "If we look past are differences and all become the same, we'll be ok". No, the differences are ok. People shouldn't have to assimilate to be equal.

    Now if Alex's speech...

    Personally, I look at X-Men more as an allegory than as a metaphor. What broke it for me was when it was said that Professor X was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Magneto Was Malcolm X. The comparison...

    You and I are not offended. But I think that whole thing where he said F the fans that he offended would have people calling for his head.

    Imagine if Dan Slott would have said that when he was...

    That's a great way at looking at it. Sometimes a break is needed. Yeah, it does suck. But IMO entitlement does play a large role in this kind of thinking. When I was younger (around 11 or 12) I...

    Now back to the thread. Anyone have an opinion about post # 221? I'll kick it off. No what he said does not offend me, but I can see how one would be offended. I also think if a creator has a group...

    The quoted line was not meant to be unfriendly. That's just the way I come off sometimes. I get pretty blunt. I figure we're grown here, so why sugar coat things. I apologize if that came off wrong....

    On the first point, ok. I rather hear it from the horse's mouth, but whatever. If people in that position told you that, I have no reason to doubt you. BTW, that could have been avoided by saying...

    It could be all of the reasons you stated or none. A person that actually does this could give a better understanding because they are speaking for themselves. And since you don't speak for them, I...

    Ok people, here is a litmus test of sorts.

    A few years back, Howard Chaykin said this about the complaints to his work on The Shadow...(I picked Chaykin because Remender is too polarizing a...

    So after giving me a "better" way to ask the question "why would one buy something they don't like?" and before that, saying if by me stating "if you don't like it, don't buy it" is a way to stop...

    Ok,ShaokhaN. If you buy comics that you don't like, why do you do it?

    Why would you give a damn about what someone (who you don't really know) thinks about what you do at your LCS? Are you saying because somebody on this board "yelled" at you for being a smart...

    I don't know how your LCS runs, but every LCS I've been to in NYC lets you read the book before buying it. That's one way to know if you like a book before buying it. Another way is asking people...

    You explained this better than anyone else I've seen do on these boards. Makes sense.

    One last time, I'm curious why someone would spend money on something they don't like. If you still don't understand, I don't know what to tell you. :confused:
