I like DC characters; I just hate DC

I'm Amy, a white queer atheist vegetarian cis female physics major. I spend most of my time fangirling Connor Hawke, Jason Todd and Cassandra Cain. This blog is sex-positive, body positive, QUILTBAG positive, anti-racism, anti-misogyny, anti-ableism, anti-oppression in general, anti-whatever fuckery DC is pulling now, and pro-Missing-E. Check out http://daggerpen.livejournal.com/tag/fanfiction for my fics. I have SPD and a migraine disorder, so please tag for flashing lights, general trigger warnings, and, just as a personal "I'm tired of seeing scans from these shitty arcs" thing, tag for Fabian Nicieza and Grant Morrison, as well as the issue numbers of the arcs in which they both butchered Jason's characterization.
I am likewise willing to tag for anything. I do my best to tag for anything that might generally be a problem for someone, but if I'm posting something you need to Savior, just drop me an ask and I'll do my best. Thanks to Tumblr user dimethyloctopus for the icon. Check out the full version here: http://dimethyloctopus.tumblr.com/post/48569979761/cass-cain-redesign-kinda

So, Scott Lobdell displayed his general Twitter etiquette today.

Let me start out by saying a few things:

(Newest comments are first, oldest last.)

1. I did misinterpret his initial response. My bad. When I asked about Roy’s Navajo heritage, I thought I was being clear that I meant his connection to the Navajo culture, not his ambiguous Native blood. I apologize for that, since I do get the feeling that a lot of the drama from his ostensibly changing Roy’s background was not deserved.

2. I still do think Scott’s comment, legitimate question or not, was poorly phrased. I now understand what he intended, but people still took offense, and he should have apologized for that rather than acting like people saying that he said something with a lot of racist connotations was the gravest of insults. If I step on someone’s foot without meaning to, I still apologize.

3. I also still think Scott is a racist and a misogynist. Not because of his comment, but because I’ve read RHATO. Which also gave further reason for his comments to be taken as insensitive.

4. The last comment on my part was probably somewhat off-topic, but, hell, I’d been wanting to get that off my chest for a while.

5. Whatever else, I think we can all agree that DC’s PR department has no Twitter policy.

It’s ironic, b/c I was actually all set to post a “My bad, Scott actually meant this, though I still think his question had enough in common with racist statements about people who don’t ‘look’ Native not being Native enough that he should apologize” Tumblr post before this conversation continued, the Android app just wouldn’t let me post it.

Somehow, I don’t think he’s going to be answering any more of my questions.
