Hmmm I wasn't offended at all. But then I'm an old lady, so it might be a geenrational thing. Comics have evolved a bit and there are more women comic creators than ever before. As a result, I think this has helped young girls and women become more interested in comics. What brought me to the comics table were graphic novels, zines, and Lynda Barry all things that were unavailable to me growing up in the early '60s. Even though I watched the Batman TV series with Adam West, I NEVER read Batman comic books, and I doubt my mother would have let me buy them because of the way most popular comics objectified women. (The Archie comics were the WORST in that regard, IMHO, yet most parents thought that comic was silly and harmless.) While it's never fair to generalize people, the fact remains that ONE women laughed at your interest in comics and perhaps unfairly characterized you because of said interest. That is your reality. And frankly, when I was a teenager I thought boys who read comics were SO NOT COOL unless of course, they were checking out the R. Crumb comic on the cover of the Cheap Thrills album, because, well that was different. Unfortunately, we teach our children what we know and all these stereotypes get handed down to the next generation. Sorry about that Anyway, perhaps a little re-wording of this comic might have been all you needed to avoid raising someone's feminist sensibilities. Communication with people is tricky and filled with landmines. And women are full of all sorts of surprises. It's best not to underestimate ANYONE these days, young man. (she says with a grin )

Comic bloggers of the World Wide Web unite! We all share a common interest – comics. Making them, reading them, loving them, or hating them, comics are what we’re all about. And it’s what our readers are all about too. Just like them, we’re fans and creators who are fans of creators (and sometimes creators of fans). So whether you’re a blogger looking to extend your readership, a small press creator trying to find the best sites to promote your book, or just a fanboy or fangirl looking for some buzz, social promotion is the way to bring us all together.
