Yeah, I see a LOT of grasping at straws going on here. Scott wrote a sexist, inconsistent comic where the actions of the main character AND the narrative are a sincerely poor execution of the plot. I DO hold her accountable for that. It IS her fault. Mike Costa’s poor quality was his fault, not his editor’s is a perfect example. And I’m pretty sure everyone’s raving about Roberts for what he writes, not Barber because he’s just the editor.
No. The AUTHOR is responsible for their own story. And people can stand in epic denial all they want, but the fact remains that Barber has written Windblade, and I did not find his characterization as offensive and sexist as I find Scott’s. Nor did I find the artwork in DC and RiD offensive in the way I found Stone’s work offensive. Why didn’t Barber make her fix her lazy, loose, and inconsistent plot? I don’t know. Why didn’t Mike Costa’s editor make him go back and write well?
I’ll tell y’all this though. If you want to excuse Scott for the poor work she did on the Windblade miniseries, then you better start heaping praise on Barber for all the work Roberts has done. Because I’m over here shaking my head at what looks like willful denial of reality. If you liked the miniseries, fine. But don’t sit there and try to excuse Scott of her failure by pushing the blame off on someone else,. She wrote it. It’s her fault. And for the sake of whatever one finds holy, TRY to stop flailing in defense of this mess and listen to the actual WORDS those of us who are rightfully offended by this are saying.

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
