    Thank you! :) The problem is that in the translation they used a very derogatory slur for gay people (probably the most similar term in English would be the fa-word).

    I'm referring to the "official" headband, which only the male citizens can wear after they completed their studies (like they explained in Superman No. 352, Oct 1980: "The Mark of a Citizen").

    About Krypton as an "advanced" society, I don't know, it seems to me that its earth-1 version was depicted as a quite male-dominated one. I mean, this is the famous scene where Jor-El talks to...
