Sad, but kinda funny at the same time

It never fails.  Have someone comment on one of the elephants in the room of modern American comics - the poor portrayal of female characters by the Big Two, and how that adversely affects female readership -  and the 'angry dumb' (as my friend Greg put it) come out of the woodwork, attacking the messenger for pointing out what should be obvious, with a vileness and stupidity one normally reserves for YouTube comment threads.

Don't believe me?  Check out Kelly Thompson's excellent article on the subject, and then - if you dare - wade into the comment section to see a prime example of certain male comic book fans living down to their stereotype.
