In which I illustrate to comic book fandom why this Gay Magical Negro is not their friend.
So Chuck Dixon and his ilk of glorified inbreds have recently been throwing a hissy fit over the repeal of DADT and the invasion of the homos fagging up their preshus armies and handing out their AIDS burgers.
Now typically I would write a long eloquent thesis about why homophobia is wrong and why this failed mindset is so full of fail
Between Levitz’s misogyny, the Thor racefail, and Dixon’s homophobia (trifecta anyone?), I’m simply out of spoons and today we won’t be playing diplomatic minority where I mind my tone like a good non-threatening Negro. Because if you think I’m under obligation to smile and take it while I’m being denigrated, then you’re a sociopath who views me as a 3/5 subhuman.
No. All I have to say today to Dixon and others like him is simply: FUCK YOU!!!
-If you honestly think that I’m about to waste my precious time explaining to your bigoted asses why I am a human being entitled to the same rights, dignities and liberties that you take for granted and me being gay doesn’t negate said humanity or rights, then FUCK YOU!!!
-If this comic here doesn’t drive home the truth for you, FUCK YOU!!!
-If Katy Kane’s story (that was penned brilliantly by Greg Rucka) doesn’t illustrate for you the injustice of DADT, then FUCK YOU!!!
-If it’s not registering that the same weak ass arguments being made against queer soldiers were made against black soldiers (and don’t even get me started on the countless contributions we’ve made protecting a country that fears and hates us) then FUCK YOU!!!
-If you honestly believe that true equality = some Machiavellian agenda from the Left, then FUCK YOU!!!!!
And by the by, if you think that as a proud alpha male, I’m going to feel uncomfortable and threatened by powerful, smart, sexy phenomenal women and that I won’t celebrate and look up to the Xenas, the Buffys, the Veronica Mars, the Zoe Washburnes, the Cassandra Cains, the Storms, in the same way I look up to Batman or Superman, then FUCK YOU!!!! Real men celebrate phenomenal women.
-If you argue that we live in such a colorblind post-racial society and then flip your shit whenever someone asks for better representation of POCs in comics, THEN FUCK YOU!!!!!
-If the story of Adam: The Legend of the Blue Marvel didn’t educate your privileged white asses that racism and white privilege is more rampant than ever, then read about the lynching and cover-up that went down here:
Still don’t want to believe the truth? FUCK YOU!!!!
-To white bigots who think racism is cool and edgy, FUCK YOU!!!! That’s right Dan Slott, I’m still looking at your punk ass. Go fuck yourself.
-To you self-proclaimed white allies, FUCK YOU!!! Rather than letting the POCs do all the heavy lifting fighting racism, why don’t you get off your pasty asses and do something. Why don’t YOU start a protest and a movement and demand better representation instead of providing your POC friends lip service and indulging in a self-congratulatory circle jerk about how you’re such a good white ally. Here’s the thing, you have white privilege. People actually listen to you. Why don’t you use your privilege for good.
-To you cis white fangirls who are all too quick to forget that women’s rights and feminism ALSO applies to WOC and trans sisters, FUCK YOU as well!!
Just as you’re quick to protest and act for your blonde haired blue-eyed audience inserts , your comic book Bella Swans, why don’t you be just as proactive in demanding ongoing titles and better treatment of Storm, Vixen, Renee Montoya, Dust, Amanda Waller, Cassandra Cain, you know, women who actually DESERVE their own titles.
-And speaking of speshul cis white fangirls, I’m not your gay pet, nor am I your fashion accessory. If and when you make with the heterosexism, expect privileges to be checked and a foot in that ass.
-If you think you’re going to dictate how I enjoy comic fandom, THEN FUCK YOU!!!
-If you take exception to me calling out heterosexism, racism, white privilege, misogyny or any other aspect of institutional oppression in comics and real life, FUCK YOU!!!!
-If you have a problem with me being fed up with being denigrated and not being nice about it, FUCK YOU!!!!
-If you take issue with me speaking out and demanding equality in fandom for women, POCs, and LGBTQs, FUCK YOU!!!!!!
-If you have a problem with me demanding equality and respect for me and mine, FUCK YOU!!!!!
This all to say, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, you’re cool, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, not you the other one behind you, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, especially FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, and FUCK YOU!!!!!!
