Batwoman Comes Out

A bunch of people have emailed me asking what I think about the much-discussed announcement that Batwoman is returning as a lesbian. Well, I think it’s fucking cool. As Mr. Shakes wrote last May, when discussing Marvel’s treatment of gay characters, “The liberal’s greatest weapon, pop culture, remains sharp and potent, and I find it encouraging that even under the Right’s rabid onslaught, it continues to be uncompromising. Until conservatives develop a sense of humor, we will continue to have an advantage in this area.” Snap.
