Gail Simone appears to have some Issues.
In addition to the tweet above — which reads “All those damn attractive Chinese people with their delicious food and wonderful culture! #Iambadatracism” — there’s also this to contend with:
“I don’t care WHY you killed The Wasp, I’m just glad you DID @BRIANMBENDIS. #womenwhodeserverefrigerators”
(from remnantof as well.)
I don’t know much about Gail Simone, not being a comics reader. But these tweets tell me that I wouldn’t trust her with characters of color and would give any female characters under her pen the serious side eye.
Wikipedia says she’s the current writer for Wonder Woman.
Guess I won’t be reading that anytime soon.
having not yet found the tweet in question, i offer up this gross example of exoticism in which Simone gets a form of racial oppression completely right, and pretty much sums up how i and others feel she deals with people and characters of color.

OK bedtime for me then! ^^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
