On the other hand, I doubt many public relations advisers would give DC a gold star for a week where they can be painted across the internet as being both anti-lesbian marriage and pro-naked psycho suicide! :smt105


I'll be happy to give them a gold star. HasDCDoneSomethingStupidToday.com was mentioned on several mainstream sites. Traffic's through the roof!

Maybe their plan is to overload our servers and crash the site. One more screwup would probably put it over the top.

This site is not run by the imaginary public relations advisers I made up in my head, that's for sure!

Why is it that a comic company becomes "pro-naked psycho suicide" as soon as this comes out, but they aren't "pro-remove-a-person's-face" or whatever horrible thing a villain is doing to someone else on a cover? I'm not even taking DC's side on this, I just wanna understand the difference....

If they wanted to sexualize suicide, why not go with auto erotic asphyxiation? I know that's what I do. The chicken isn't the only thing getting choked right now.

Comics have a long history of being perceived as irresponsible in their treatment of female characters, gay characters, minority characters in general. They're perceived as using rape and killing of female characters as plot devices for male characters, as well as sexualizing and objectifying every female character, and there is a lot of very public backlash against that right now, which should be surprising to no one paying attention (and it should be the job of DC's marketing department to pay attention to that sort of thing). DC appears to either be oblivious to this, or else not give a shit.

You'll have to ask the internet. If I were you I'd go sign up at DCWKA and see what they say.

It's suicide. It's not a fucking joke. It's a very serious issue. If it were treated serious and not in a sexualized way, okay, fine. But making it into a joke or sexualizing it makes you scum, DC.
