Quick question. Is it Microaggressions, Micro Aggressions, or Micro-Aggressions. Meh, doesn’t matter.
So, CBS released a preview of the upcoming Supergirl series.
1. It’s anti-gay.
Did you see the disgust in her tone when she said she wasn’t a lesbian? The gender-shaming by whomever that was, that since she wouldn’t have sex with him it must be because she’s gay, was bad enough. These jokes are not funny.
2. It’s anti-woman
The one time Supergirl tried standing up for women, she was shut down by her boss who said she was just a girl. Why? Because being a woman is too scary for comic book fanboys, and they can only get behind a little girl they aren’t intimidated by?
3. It’s pro-male
How many times do we have to hear she’s not her cousin? We get it, Superman big and strong. Supergirl weak and fragile. Why not just make a menstruation joke?
4. It’s anti-good.
The trailer is so laughably bad, it must be a conspiracy by patriarchal illuminati. People keep complaining there isn’t a female super hero lead, so they made this so bad that there would never be one again. We’re on to you, CBS. Or should we say, CIS!
