Lookit This!

I don't usually linkblog but this is terribly terribly funny.

And it's possibly the best explanation for why the overuse of rape in tv-shows/movies/comics tend to piss us bitchy feminists off that I've ever seen.

    It's funny 'cause it's true!

    It's terribly sad 'cause it's true!

    It's two...two...two truths in one!

    Ha! I've actually seen this before my favorite is "The Recovery":) And what's really funny is that someone both you and I know actually almost did that to my male Stargate character:)

    One question: Who's the guy who is turned away by the exec homaging?

    Heh heh. Pardon my sniggering, but it certainly made a valid point. Wouldn't mass male castration make for a FABULOUS crossover? Superman could probably suck it up, but Hal and Ollie would be running and crying for their mommies. Along with everybody else. I wouldn't mind it happening to Tony Stark right about now though. Sorry, I'm in a cranky mood.

    Hi, first time poster, but I've been reading WFA for a while now.

    The comic makes a good point and is hilarious, but I can't help but think the target is off. I havn't seen the episode in question, but the new Battlestar Galactica is consistantly well-written. Even if it relies on tired tropes like this one, it usually handles them really well. I guess this latest example was just the straw that broke the camel's back after the many subpar examples before it.

    Also, castrating D'argo, as shown in the picture, is impossible. There's no way you'd be able to get anywhere near his mivonks, on account of him messing up your shit. :)

    Yeah, only hackeneyed writers use rape and baby-loss as a plot device. We'd never get that from New York Times award-winning book writers like Brad Melt-- oh.
