"But MY Babs wouldn’t act like that!"
Really? Fact is, if Babs after going thru mondo-shit and saving the damn city over and over wants to toss back a few brews and hit it with a himbo on a night off, I’m all about it. I hope they DON’T try to make this a damage thing, but a girl who has decided “fuck it, I’m living it up because I could be killed any minute now”.
Further, I love how everyone becomes a damn Puritan when it comes to single super heroines. They always hate it when a straight super heroine has a semblance of sexual freedom. They’ll scream and bitch about love and marriage with a lesbian, but never bring it up about the non-‘Mo ones. WW is always too good for anyone and the only reason Jessica Jones got to have free sex was because she was “damaged”, then when she got “fixed” she was already knocked-up and did a shotgun marriage.
Upcoming solicits acknowledge that she’s acting weird and a doppelgänger is even questioned. I hope it’s that she just wants to make the most of her free-time, just like BUFFY DID over a damn decade ago. I’m not aggro- one bit about the Slut Shaming topic. If you’re not ashamed, you have no worries, period, and if you are, figure out your own boundary and stay there and mind your own business about other women. In this case, I seem to be hearing from people who I’m pretty damn sure would suck face with a hot guy beer or no beer and that is baffling. I hope ‘damage’ isn’t an excuse, just a girl being a damn girl.
To end, you can keep “Your Babs”- morose, under-developed, and at times like Batwoman Jr. and I’ll keep mine: young, moxie-fied, DIY crime fighter gifted with perfect memory and digital savvy who issues karate kicks and we will be just fine.
