The problem with Comicsgate

When it comes to wanting comic books free from politics, what they actually want is comics free from liberal politics as they seem to accidentally or rather deliberately shove in their conservative politics. What they want is somebody who doesn’t offend their political preferences, even if some of these writers and cartoonists they patronise aren’t even that good themselves. I even think they have equally bad or perhaps much worse taste than SJWs do, which’s saying if they really can’t tell the difference between a good writer from a hack.

They think that pandering to people who don’t read comics is pandering to a minority when in reality that would be the majority, statistically speaking which’s saying when it comes to what most people are into. These people have got to be sleeping under a rock, especially when it comes to what most people do and support. If most people don’t read comics that much, you might as well forgive them for thinking that Valkyrie and Nick Fury are black if because they’re portrayed by black people in the far more popular Marvel films.

Even if some of their concerns are legitimate, some of it’s something not many people are into. That’s if most of them aren’t big comics fans to begin with, that’s when you realise how out of touch many Comicsgaters are when it comes to what the majority of people are into. It’s like they’re right-wing authoritarians who reject and attack anybody who isn’t like them, don’t have much contact with normal people and they think they’re normal when they’re not.

That’s one of the other problems with the Comicsgate movement, they think they’re normal when in reality they’re outliers. Especially when it comes to the fact that most people don’t read comics on a daily basis, that’s when their idea that pandering to people who don’t read comics is pandering to a minority falls apart real badly. That’s how out of touch they are with reality.
