Shouldn’t vs. can’t.

/Shouldn’t vs. can’t.

It’s perfectly acceptable to say that Marvel should never have released Rob Liefeld’s, now infamous, Captain America image […] It’s even OK, and expected, to point out that the image is ugly, disproportionate, and a completely ridiculous representation of the male body; that no one looks like that.

But, say the same thing about a Catwoman, Spider-Woman, or even a Supergirl cover, and those same exact comments are met with a barrage of “censorship” claims and how critics should be ashamed of themselves for trying to take away the rights and jobs of innocent creators.

 

GHERU on “censorship“.

I’ve removed the illustrative images from the quote but, c’mon. Y’all know which ones they are, don’t you?

Also very slightly content warning at the link for some language that uses the term rape outside of the description of sexual assault.
