saw this article / opinion piece today, and was like, wow.
Figured I would see what the community thinks.
I agree with parts of it, I understand all of it, If I had the chance to reply to John Stossel who wrote at least the title, and this mystery " July " would be; no one is forcing you or anyone to read these storylines, that would be #1. B , would be, DC has a Multiverse/ Infinite Multiverse, so each character that was mentioned in the article, they have their own planet, if anything the debate should be, which planet are they on, and is it the only one that matters.
There are tons of Batman stories/ series, where it is just Batman, same for everyone.
I don’t like when stories tend to pander to politics , i stay away from those, I use to be turned off to the idea of LGBTQ characters, and was of the same mindset,
I do not like the label of " Woke " , for me what I saw happening, was a private society not liking change.
The comic book , was a closed society for " nerds and geeks " and what happened was now, the door was open to include a new community. One which mind you, if you are a Doom Patrol Fan, the lgbtq community is more than welcome and accepted into along with heterosexuals, it isn’t a kumbaya society they live in, it is just people who accept each other for who they are in this doom patrol group.
In the end, stossels opinion piece with commentary by " July " a waste of space.
It offered nothing constructive, or substantial, and it just came off in the end as trolling. Even if they are right to an extent, publishing this was pointless.
Also, just an FYI to everyone, I just wrote an opinion piece to an opinion piece, anyone can write an opinion piece, because, drum roll, wait for it… It is just someone stating an Opinion.
An we all know what Opinions are like, because everyone has one.
