    It's true that we're not, and it's understandable that you don't want to do that. I don't either, really. But if we're going to use a phrase like "in real world terms," it seems like we're talking...

    Everyone should get explict consent before they do anything sexual, and make sure they still have consent for every step that follows. And victim blaming--as in "she (or he} was asking for it by...

    In my opinion, a lot of your claims about how she was characterized would have been easier to support after just the first few issues, or at least during the first year, than they are in retrospect....

    Oh, I am confident that you won't change your mind. :) But since you do insist on calling the issue 19 WTF moment "sexual assault," let's consider the definition of that term, which usually includes...

    Setting aside this legal label that you insist on using, there are (whether you or I like it or not) previous examples, in the other continuities, of Wonder Woman at least coming close to a line...

    What does she mean by "behind the pull," anyway? That this other individual is "pulling" while Strife is "pushing"? Or was that supposed to be "behind [or below] the pool," as in the voice speaking...

    It's creative speculation, and I like that. Honestly, though, speculation that there's an unannounced "collaborative effort between different comics usually turns out to be wrong. At least, that's...

    Yeah, David says "right now we have more of a god story that we wanted to tell." And it sounds like Meredisth personally isn't super-enthusiastic about any of the old villains:"And I really left -the...

    Well, counselor, suddenly I feel like I should consult Blackwell's Legal Dictionary on the definitions of "conscience" and "to give." ;) But, instead, I'll remind us what I said about "conscience"...

    The cuffs were a locus of internal conflict and character development in Azz's run. In 12, we found out she'd been holding back and protecting her foes, and the earth, from herself all along; in 13,...

    I think it's because her original origin was tied to WWII in ways that Superman's and Batman's and other Golden Age characters weren't, and because the most popular versions of her--Marston's and...

    I think maybe you're taking me a little too literally (which could be because I sounded more literal than I meant to); the lasso doesn't give her a conscience in quite the literal and concrete way a...

    Sure--as I said, she has no discernible conscience pre-lasso, she is silenced and morose while wearing the lasso, and then she has a crushing conscience. So to me it's a lot like the lasso gave her a...

    Yes, pretty much! That way we can all be happy. But Shrodinger has gotten plenty of credit already; I think we should call this The Brett's Bullet Principle.
