I'm not even reading the responses at this point.

I may write an apology piece or something to try and clarify my points tomorrow.

So whom had page 4 in the pool when this Superman/Lois Lane thread would morph into a thread about SD's and Zechs first date? :lol:

I wrote this to try and clear the air, thoughts?:

I certainly didn’t expect my piece yesterday to cause so much controversy… how was I to know there were so many Final Crisis fans out there!

But seriously, I’d like to apologise to anyone who was offended by what I said about Lois Lane. It was not my intent to insult anyone. I do not feel I said anything sexist, but that’s in the eye of the beholder really, so I apologise if you feel I was. I would like to thank the people who responded to me in a civil and reasonable manner, you make some very good points. But to those of you who responded with foul language or personal insults to my character… what the fuck? You may disagree with what I said, but there is no excuse for some of the things you said.

If you can’t defend your position civilly, then you need to think about why you hold it. Do you really care about this or do you just like to argue and be outraged by everything that slightly disagrees with you?

This blog is normally barely read by anyone, I think the most notes I received on a piece before this one was about 12. I did not expect so many people to read what was just a general musing. The amount of opprobrium I received was actually rather distressing. I think this will be the last time I dip my toes into the heady topic of identity and gender politics in comics, even if I didn’t fully realise I was doing it. This is a big topic, and one I don’t feel fully equipped to comment on.

I hope some of the people who read this article will stick around and read my future comics reviews and articles. They aren’t nearly as controversial as this!

It's a nice apology, but by the same token I do think some of these people need to get over themselves - and I say that as someone who didn't entirely agree with the points you were making.

I have no problem with people disagreeing with me, I've gotten into plenty of online arguments over the years, I just don't like the tone of a lot of the responses, they were unnecessarily harsh.

I wrote a fairly lengthy and (what is to me) a well-considered, logical piece, and got back one sentence, expletive-laced replies.

That's not a level of discourse I like.

Which is exactly why I think an apology is far more than they deserve.

Should have left it alone, and just let it blow over. You do not own anyone an apology this is what you felt and took the nerve to post something people would find as a relativity negative view and possibly offend them online. People are going to disagree with your thought, it is the nature of the internet. The person who tries to please everyone online is going to go insane.

I just don't want the whole internet to think I'm some kind of massive sexist.

Oh no one said anything about "massive", you already confessed to feeling under-equipped yourself in your apology. :P
