I Read Comics

The latest "nonsense" (his words, not mine) run through the Regenderizer:

"I mean, there have been a number of gruesome torture scenes involving ripe young males squirming and arching their bodies in poses designed to titillate. That's caused a few men to get bent out of shape and pissed off at the comic book industry as a whole, as if every person involved in the creative process, on every book from every publisher was guilty of perpetrating the very deed that was depicted.

And that's not entirely fair.

Which isn't to say that it's "right" to depict such things either, but people do get tortured on occasion so it's not entirely unrealistic (although they seldom look "sexy" in the process, I'll grant you). "


(Obviously, click to read the whole thing.)

Oh yeah. Uh huh, it's your birthday...
