Anonymous asked: Brian why does it seem that there is such hostility towards woman creators in the comic industry?

brianmichaelbendis:

Because no matter what we do there will always be unevolved cowards among us. and the anonymity of the Internet brings out some people’s worst instincts.

  please read my words carefully… I said some people. and its only some people. but those people seem really awful.

 truthfully, it is not just female creators. a lot of people take weird, hateful shit from weird people.  truthfully, honestly, a lot of us get showered with lovely thoughts all day as well but the sickening stuff stands out because… it just does.

but I think that all of us would hope that we would have gotten to a place as a society where our mothers, sisters, daughters and wives could go on the Internet without having to worry about being called a whore for having an opinion.

 I think what rattles most of us in the comic book community is the fact that someone could read a bunch of comic books, with very specific, simple moral themes with highly moral characters, fighting the fight for good, and COMPLETELY MISS THE POINT.

 you know what Capt. America would never do? he would never go on the Internet anonymously and slam anyone.

the point of the stories, the good ones :-), is to show us what we could be. not to waddle around in the minutia of comic book science but to enjoy a world were someone is fighting the good fight.  a world we hope we could live in one day.

 just because you are posting anonymously doesn’t mean that those thoughts are not yours.  it is not role-play, it is not a character, that is who you really are.  that is the energy you are putting out in the world. this isn’t some mask you are hiding behind… this is who you REALLY ARE.

and if who you really are is a bully, anonymous or not, I truly feel bad for you. I really do. I feel bad that you’re hurting so badly that you think you need to do this.  

but there is NO excuse to attempt to punish others under the cloak of anonymous. none. 

Thank you! Someone finally addressed this topic with calm intelligence. Much appreciated Mr. Bendis.
