Stop Bitching about Changes to Fictional Characters

General / 15 September 2021

I get it. We all love our comics.

Some just love them a bit too much.

The entire genre of comics has pushed ideas of inclusion, acceptance and peace since it's inception. 

For some reason, our modern day fandom has a weird twitch when it comes to anybody redesigning or re-interpreting a classic character in the slightest way, never mind the furor that nudity or gender changes cause online, with people arguing and debating the merits. This reaction might some day serve some purpose, if it didn't devolve into name calling and digital street brawls over petty points. 

The fact is, when you become a warrior against change and chastise anyone who dares to take a different take on a character, you're just being an idiot.

You're using a change to a FICTIONAL person as an excuse to vent your own repressed issues and treat a REAL human being like shit.

Your priorities are fucked. The world is burning and you want to attack some artist online because they dared to make a Hispanic version of Wonder Woman or a female Thor? You can have an opinion, but just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are right or that you even have a valid point to make. 

That energy could be much better spent on making the world a better place. 

Instead there are some people who would rather focus their energy on throwing a tantrum about race and gender representation.

If you make that argument, you're not an adult, you're a 5 year old. 

Those who do feel strongly about this subject and want to argue it or stop it completely should walk away from their keyboards an into the closest body of water...until the bubbles stop. 

That's all! Here's some art I made!

Thanks for reading!
