    I'm not sure what you are basing this Starfire stuff on....
    Let's look at his quote again with a little bolding action and see if we can spot what you've missed:

    "That's BS. Wonder Woman has her status, but look at the shit DC gets for showing Catwoman and Starfire having sex. Starfire has had sex with one person in the last 14 months and "fans" still call her a slut. So the problem isn't with DC's depiction, it's with the people reading the books."

    I feel like making a cheesy, sarcastic, metaphorical response to this, but I won't. Because I'm better than that

    Eff' that, slum it up with the rest of us and quit being such a snob. High ground is best used for battle (unless you happen to live in the Star Wars universe where Darth Maul and Anakin Skywalker might have conflicting opinions on the matter).

    Hey jerk, people shouldn't have to read to get indignant about what people say! You take your literate elitism somewhere else!

    I think the only problem with the Starfire thing was that there was just a huge T&A emphasis in that whole scene and the way it was drawn, so it sort of rubs the wrong way. By itself, there obviously isn't anything wrong with someone who likes casual sex, but I think there was just a certain vibe given off there which comes off as a "male fantasy/object" kind of thing, even if it's unintentional on the creators' part.

    Well, the point of her sexy pose was for the kid to take her cellphone picture so the bad guys could intercept it and track them down. They could have told the story in another way, but it's a fun action-y book so they did it in a comedic way. So yes, she was a fantasy object for a young boy. And that was all before she asked Roy for casual sex. After which he's been her monogamous partner for the rest of the series so far. I just cannot imagine an interpretation of that scene as anything misogynist.
