In all seriousness, take the criticism that is written well (There was 1/100 that I found.Probably more) to heart but realise that for every pissed off person complaining probably three or four dudes saw it and agreed but didn't wanna step into the shitstorm.

Don't you dare apologize, Punchy. Internet whackos be damned. You didn't say anything morally wrong or factually inaccurate. As insane as some of the critics have been, you got a ton of "likes this" reactions, too. My only problem is you don't list yourself as "...of The Outhouse." :-D

Welcome to Internet fame :band

To be dickish, these women apparently need a fictional female role model because the great actual female role models who exist out there aren't enough.

Its funny going through that lady's response to your post as apparently she's not actually picking up on what you're saying but instead using it as an excuseto misinterpret and satisfy her own cause.

People like her and DCWKA really miss the point of things and instead get all upset with idiot misinterpretations of what these celebrations mean.

But hey, I'll just sit here and celebrate the anniversary of the creation of a mythos that's had such a profound effect on Western civilaztion and the morals and values of generations instead of dividing things into parts with labels for his and hers. In the meantime, all these bitches who want to make fiction a gender issue should all be herded up, tied to train tracks and crushed by trains.

Honestly, Lois was one of the first well-developed female comic book characters out there, and is certainly among the most well known. I'd argue that she has more personality than most of DC's other female characters and has been woefully underutilized in recent years as anything other than a romantic interest for Superman. She's also historically been Superman's most critical supporting cast member, the one that continually grounds him and helps to define his humanity. There's a reason why all the evil Supermen stories feature Lois in the ground or with Lois permanently pushed aside. I can certainly see why she's a celebrated character amongst a group of people who are actively trying to push superhero comic book culture towards a less male-centric focus.

The tumblr reaction (like everything else on tumblr) is a frenzied heighten overreaction, but I can see why people are disagreeing with your stance.

Honestly, while I would normally agree that the feminism we see most of today is this useless sort of PC Facebook activism that is more concerned with posting snarky memes to an audience that already agrees with the opinion and being outraged on Tumblr, Lois Lane was an important character, and, frankly, a more interesting one than Superman, who is boring. Lois was a competent career woman portrayed as scooping Clark Kent and being his competitor (and often his better) in the 1930s, when women had only been allowed to vote for ten years. That's pretty damn progressive for that time, and she has remained a well known and popular character since then. Is she used well be DC? That's another story, but I think the fact that Lois isn't used as a character that can carry her own book has more to do with DC's inability to produce anything but mediocre superhero comics than it does her merit. I would read and enjoy a mature book about Lois as a reporter that stayed away from Superman and dealt with her doing what she's famous for, reporting. Reporter stories have a pulp tradition similar to detective stories, though not as well known today. Hell, I'd love to read a pulpy Lois Lane book set in the 30s. Make this shit happen, DC.

Superman sucks.

This might be my favorite response: http://therearecertainshadesoflimelight ... r-politics

Fuck you, Punchy, for daring to piss on something after the Boston Marathon. It's like they're an Outhouse poster or something.

I agree with most of what you say here, Lois is very important, and a very good character but she's still secondary to Superman. She's his love interest, not the other way around.

Outhouse posters are far more rational than tumblr users.

WTF does any of this have to do with Boston?

I even said that celebrating this anniversary was a welcome break from the horrible news going on in the very article.
