    But if you’re of the mind that this all should be taken at face value and nothing cultural should be read into it, that’s absolutely fine. That’s not how I read it, though.

    That “infantilizing of teenagers” comment has been a hallmark of adults attempting to justify their problematic and often non-consensual behaviors. I’d rather we “infantilize” young people than let them become the victims of predators.

    I just watched "War of the Roses" (Good Movie!) so I'm going to use it as an example. Michael Douglas is 10 years older than Kathleen Turner in real life, about the same difference as Donna and Terry, yet they were paired together romantically in 4 projects. Michael Douglas is 25 years older than Catherine Zeta-Jones, yet they've been happily married 22 years. If you're compatable after the age of consent age is just a number.

    I will agree that societies have a beauty bias and will let a lot of things slide if they find the person attractive that they wouldn't if they found the person unattractive.

    I don't think Terry Long was ugly or unattractive. I just thought his behavior was creepy and groomy.

    Leonardo DiCaprio has been getting flack for dating women much younger than him for years and he's better looking than Terry.

    What will we have news from DC today?
    I guess a new Titans series by Tom Taylor and Travis Moore will be announced at some point.

    Looks like it's the Titans book being announced, but it also looks like Nicola Scott is doing the art.

    P.S. And please have Nicola Scott design a decent costume for Donna. Thanks again!

    At least the bracelets and silver lasso of persuasion are back in play and that dreadful sword and shield are gone.

    I like all of these looks, especially Donna.

    This black and silver looks nice and yay! The Silvery Lasso is back in hand (pun intended!)!

    Donna Troy back in the starfield, combing elements of her most iconic looks. Loosing. My. Mind.

    Great to see the best element of her iconic black suits has come back. It's also great to see her lasso return. I wonder if Nicola pulled some strings there. But I'm not a fan of the big stars. Maybe they'll quietly disappear a few issues in, lol.
