Son of Batman spoilers!
WARNING: THE SON OF BATMAN MOVIE INCLUDES REFERENCES TO RAPE THAT ARE TRIVIALIZED AND PORTRAYED AS SEXY
I’m fucking shaking right now. They kept Morrison’s retconned rape storyline. No warning. Nothing. Just, oh by the way, remember when I raped you? Didn’t you think it was hot?
I’m going to fucking throw up they tried to make someone getting raped sexy and something that the victim enjoyed, i’m fucking disgusted and shaking with rage right now.
FUCK THIS SO MUCH
TALIA AL GHUL IS NOT A FUCKING RAPIST
AND RAPE IS NOT SOMETHING SEXY THAT THE VICTIM ENJOYS
Please spread the word so that other people know what they’re getting into before watching this movie and don’t get triggered.
Can there be a letter writing campaign or something about how badly DC/WB did with rape in Son of Batman?
Not only that it’s there, but that it’s played as no big deal, sorta sexy actually.
Cause it’s really gross.
really really gross not to mention to making Talia a rapist but the fact that they handled it in such a way is just? why is it even in there? especially when the relationship between Bruce and Talia isn’t sinister at all but very mutual? like in the movie its obvious they both like each other but their ideologies clash too much etc so… there was absolutely no point to add it in
I completely agree and this sounds like a fantastic idea. If anyone else would like to spearhead this project and get addresses and information together, I’m happy to lend support and help with publicizing the campaign.
P.S. to anyone who didn’t see earlier, I would really appreciate it if you could send this post around to warn anyone else who is sensitive to this material. I was triggered by the movie and it was very upsetting, so I’d like to give people a heads up before they watch it.
