That’s right, folks, Kurt Busiek said “shitheel”. He’s never even called me a shitheel. Is he becoming Warren Ellis? Tony Harris added a further reply, saying;

So I guess I broke the Internet in half today . Lots of interesting commentary, to say the very least. Didn’t realize that many people would care about one guys opinion. Also extremely savaged and humbled by the vicious response that went so far beyond any reason whatsoever, with personal attacks on my family, my sexual history, and accusations of advances being rebuffed cosplayers, which has never ever happened. My candor and my delivery of most things can be and usually is quite blunt. Can’t help who I am, but what I’m not, and never have been is a misogynist or sexist or any number of things I was called. I have the utmost respect for all the women in my life from my mother, my sister, motherinlaw, my wife and wonderful 2 daughters. This is my final word on the subject so move on. I won’t address it again.

Gail Simone had found a positive outlook from it however. She tweeted;

 

It kinda took off and began trending. And out they came from so many people. Here are just a few.

Ooh, look, Mitchell Hundred.
