I REALLY REALLY don't like it when people bad-mouth the new Supergirl. It makes my blood boil. It almost feels like bullying to me. I hate that in all forms. Even if it is about a fictional characeter.
One of the words I've heard in conjuction with post-Crisis Kara Zor-El is "anorexic".
That isn't just mean, it's downright sickening. Even saying that "the artist draws her anorexic" is like saying "the artist draws her AIDS-ridden".
Anorexia is NOT something you joke about, or bandy about lightly as some negative comment. Anorexia is a disease that can kill people. People who have it CANNOT help themselves, like with any other disease. And it can happen to anyone. I knew someone who had it, and she was the last person I expected to get it.
Calling Supergirl anorexic reeks of ignorance to the real people who suffer from it, and I say that any who bandy about that term in a non-serious way is deningrating the people who actually suffer from the disease. And I cannot consider those people feminist.
Sorry if I offend. I HAD to get this off my chest.
