  1. I find the idea that there's something unrealistic or inappropriate about established characters being revealed to be gay or bi hilarious. I made it it to fifty years old without realizing that I'm trans. I was married with two kids. No one (including me) suspected that I was anything other than a straight, cisgender man. And I know a ton of people in the same (or a similar) boat. As long as society keeps moving in the right direction, I think this will happen less and less, but it's not going go away, at least not in my lifetime. People figure out they're different at their own pace. Or they just don't reveal certain aspects of themselves until they're ready. It's the world we live in. Even though comic book worlds aren't our world, there's no reason to expect them to be different in that particular regard. Just because you don't want to see something doesn't make it unrealistic or inappropriate.
  2. You may, of course, do as you like (until and unless a mod says otherwise). I, however, am done discussing this particular tangent on this thread.
  3. I don't think I can explain why comparing conservatives in the modern USA to Jews right before the holocaust to you is offensive if you don't see it. Especially considering it was done at a time when Republicans held two of the three branches of federal government, and hold a majority of state governments. And that is disregarding her transphobia. If you want to discuss this further, please take it to the politics thread, since it's not really on topic for this thread.
  4. https://www.scotsman.com/arts-and-culture/film-and-tv/what-did-gina-carano-say-why-actor-has-been-fired-from-disney-show-the-mandalorian-after-abhorrent-instagram-post-and-her-response-3131574
  5. That's a fine sentiment when it it comes to judging the quality of a given piece of art. It's nonsense when deciding whose art to support. I didn't go looking for some way to be offended. Carano used the much bigger platform she gained by being on the Mandalorian to mock my identity and minimize the culpability of Nazis for the holocaust. If giving a little less money to Disney might to help, even just a tiny bit, to remove that platform, then that's what I'll do. So, thanks for the advice, but I think I'll keep trying to deplatform transphobes and other bigots.
  6. And heaven forbid I not support a company that employs a transphobic bigot in a public facing position.
  7. On the other hand, I wouldn't have subscribed if they hadn't ditched her, so that's a wash for them.
  8. No, Time Limit can be used on instant powers. When used on an instant power, any preparations (gestures, extra time, etc.) are done once at the beginning, and thereafter the power can be used again every phase (if desired) until the time limit expires, without going through the initial preparations again.
  9. Totally agreed. I enjoyed it a lot, and if they can keep that up, the What If series will be a solid success.
  10. Sounds likely, but also for the PR push that a big open gives a movie.
  11. I haven't had any luck with that. Apparently Disney actually announcing the Black Widow numbers was highly unusual.
