Come here for all of Steven Padnick's deep, deep insights into comics, superheroes, publishing, and everything in between.
Batman/Robin slash fic and jokes are disturbing not because of the gay, but because of the pedophilia. That is all.
It Had To Be Said,
And I can tell you from my time spent in the Batcave that that's all a bunch of crap anyway. Batman's all about the *ladies.*Where do you think Nightwing learned that from?
Oh yes indeed--thank you for saying so.Not quite the same thing, but equally disturbing for similar reasons: Bert/Ernie or Peppermint Patty/Marcy are gay jokes.Also, it's a lazy cliche of a joke that impresses adult characteristics on children or characters created for children. Maybe the first ten thousand or so times it seemed original to someone, like Batman and Robin, giggle giggle.
