October 2, 2011 4:45 pm I was dissapointed by this episode. The discussion of the Starfire issue was focused on fanboyism (fangirlism) and people not wanting edgy, inventive books. There has been lot of ink about why people took offense to the characterization, why her character appeared misogynistic, why the story was poorly written and the sexual politics regressive... These points weren't refuted and were barely discussed. The whole conversation felt like a strawman argument that was poorly researched. If this episode was was inspired by online arguments why not go in depth? Because they are competition? Too often I'm embarrassed by comic books, and it isn't because I'm a prude or because I want to clock rolled back,(I keep Gilbert Hernandez's Birdland on my bookshelf.) It is because I have reached sexual maturity and comics are often written for an audience that never will. With sophomoric sexualization that is meant to arose 12 year olds.
