^I'm not ignoring the reality -- I'm refusing to settle for the reality. Discriminatory realities never change
It's not "discriminatory", "mysogynist" or any of the other Womynist labels that get thrown out there. It's about what sells.
Trust me, I know what it's like to have favored characters get screwed because they don't sell. I have the majority of the Byrne WW run. I love good strong female leads like Silver Sable, Widow, Spider-Girl (the real
one, aka May Parker).
But they don't sell, and in this climate neither Disney nor Marvel is going to risk much on them. Not because they're women, but because they are, unfortunately, a bad investment.
