Sex scene controversy causes male feminist to get emotional during Batman The Killing Joke panel at Comic-Con

StaffRebel Columnist

A controversial sex scene involving Batman and Batgirl lead to a shouting match at San Diego Comic Con with Killing Joke's screenwriter Brian Azzarello calling Bleeding Cool's Jeremy Konrad a 'pussy'.

After the film's premier, during a panel, a fan who was later identified as Konrad asked, “You have talked about how you wanted to give Barbara [Batgirl] more story … and yet the story you gave her ended up being about the men in her life. Why?”

Azzarello responded by saying Barbara Gordon is “stronger than the men in her life in this story.”

“She controls the men in her life in this story,” he added.

At this point, Konrad yelled that she was strong by “using sex” before walking away from the microphone.

Azzarello didn't hear the comment and responded with, “Wanna say that again? Pussy?”

This lead to a larger discussion with fans and Executive Bruce Timm voicing his opinion.

“I actually like that in that opening story both Batman and Batgirl make a series of mistakes and then it kind of escalates, because Batman kind of overreacts and then she overreacts to his overreaction,” Timm said.

“There's clearly an unstated attraction between the two of the characters from the very beginning and I think it's there in the comics. If you go back and look at the Adam West show, it's there in the Adam West show,” he went on to add.

The backlash from the discussion lead to Konrad to acknowledge he let his emotions get the best of him.

“Clearly, it was contentious, and I let my emotions get the best of me, and I need to be better than that as a journalist. But it was not necessary to use that derogatory word, especially in this situation, in a public forum. Hopefully, no offense was taken by anyone,” he wrote on his blog.

Azzarello defended his comment on Twitter saying, “I called someone a pussy when they unintelligibly yelled from the back of the room, then wouldn't repeat it.”

You'd think the controversy would be over Batman hooking up with the Commissioner Gordon's daughter, but that wasn't the case. After all, would you really have sex with the daughter of one of the few people you considered a friend, or the closest thing to one?

Little history lesson. The term pussy originally referred to a woman’s pubic hair. In the ’70s women let their pubes run wild and sometimes they resembled a cat. Referring to a modern, well groomed women, one might say, " She has no pussy".

Further, when a man refers to another as a “pussy” that is a reference to him being a “pussy-cat” as opposed to a “lion”. One is something to be feared and the other is, well, a pussy.

Definition of Male Feminist-some guy who thinks that doing and saying and agreeing with everything that man hating feminists like will get them laid, but it only earns them scorn and they are dumbfounded when the non lesbian feminists end up hooking up with some guy who treats women like dirt.

Names of things you probably never knew had names.

“Male Feminist”?? Heh heh, there’s a self-identiying cuck if there ever was one.

Old pre fembo joke told in ladies rooms around the world, I think credit goes to Rusty Warren -

Married woman : “You know men are like linoleum don’t you?”

Young Bride: “No, how so?”

Married woman : “Because if you lay them right the first time you can walk over them the rest of your life.”

I was thinking the same thing Canadian Mongrel. It would be interesting to know how Comic-Con people vote. Considering that most left governments literally live in a fantasy world, I would expect to bump into Trudeau dressed as some LGBTQ alien and Hillary Cliton disguised as a Darth Vader with a vagina and the leader of France dressed as Moff Mors.

Nothing on Rebel about either Trump OR Cliton Convention! I could not believe that Cliton’s running mate actually used HARRY TRUMAN as an example of how things should be done. The man that handed Asia and Eastern Europe to the Communists on a silver platter. Typical lefties NOT expecting their voting base to actually READ BOOKS. Truman was the biggest idiot the Americans EVER came up with next to Clinton. He only became president because Roosevelt died. Roosevelt, revered by Americans, was also a Democrat and a fool. He gave Indo-China to Ho Chi Minh. See any similarities here with Osama Obama.

It’s the principle of the matter. Remember, to virginal nerds like this such an affair is as real as it gets. We are all challenged by reality, where as they spend their lives in front of a computer whacking their tack over such fantasy issues.

Let me get this straight. There was a name calling altercation between two ‘grown’ men over a fictional affair of two comic book characters. Society is screwed up.
