Gladly. It can all be explained here.
But here we go anyway:
This article was written by Janelle Asselin criticizing the New New52 Teen Titans cover drawn by Kenneth Rocafort. A majority of the article explains the problem with how Wonder Girl is drawn. Pointing out the absurdity of her breast size and shape for that of a 17-year old girl (because boobs do not work that way. they don’t. if you’ve seen a naked girl before you should theoretically understand this to be true.)
So, in retaliation, Brett Booth took to twitter to slam the author of the article. Him and a horde of likeminded fans then proceed to make pretty harmful and sexist remarks about the author, her article, her opinion/the fact that how Wonder Girl is depicted is ok, and her “fan credit.”
Why this myth of the fake geek girl hasn’t been 1000% debunked yet is beyond me. Do these nerd really think these women would go out of their way to impress them?So basically he’s being a jerk, and so are fans that are agreeing with him.
I find it odd that he’s having a conniption over someone criticizing how another artist draws the human body. I would also like to note that Booth is an industry “professional” and is employed by DC Comics, and thus represents them…additionally, his paycheck is mostly fueled by fans buying the products that he and DC Comics produce.
The Hand that feeds, my friends. The hand that feeds.
