Bad, Batman, and Crime: APRIL 20, 2017 9:46am PT by Mia Galuppo, Aaron Couch Joss Whedon on 'Batgirl' and Exploring the "Damage" Behind His Next Superhero "I started getting obsessed with how a young woman could get hardcore enough to need to put on the cowl said the director of upcoming DC project. his "She came up, and I started getting obsessed with how a young woman could get hardcore enough to need to put on the cowl. Like, what's her damage?" he told Heat Vision. He noted that unlike Batman, Batgirl has no childhood tragedy that forced her into a life of crime fighting. "She didn't have her parents killed in an alley. Who is this person, who decides _ rather than being forced to by their childhood trauma decides to pick up this life?" he said. "How intense and driven that person is I just couldn't stop thinking about it." bruce-wqyne: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: starrcat: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: natsmiscblog: kittykat8311: out-there-on-the-maroon: the-catholic-geek: mangaluva: markhamillz: I want to die. That phrase “what’s her damage” is what really scares me here IE he thinks he’s gotta damage her to make her Batgirl because he has literally zero concept of who Barbara Gordon is as a person IE we’re probably gonna have to see Babs put through some act of extreme violence (oh god please don’t let it be sexual violence PLEASE) to traumatize her into becoming Batgirl Seriously what is wrong with her dressing like Batman for a party just to piss off her dad and winding up stopping a coupla supervillains and deciding to keep doing it because this shit’s awesome and no, Batman, you don’t get to tell her to stop, you don’t get to tell her ANYTHING because she’s not your sidekick Lil Dick Grayson making heart eyes in the background the whole time Seriously Joss there is nothing wrong with that concept, you can make a woman into a badass without damaging her first I don’t know anything about Batgirl and this sounds awful Keep Joss Whedon away from all women, and especially young women. This sounds disastrous @thefingerfuckingfemalefury have you heard about this bullshit? I’m hoping that the bad publicity about Joss Whedon that came out recently will get DC to kick him off the movie and put someone…ANYONE…else on this film She admired her dad who was a cop and she wanted to be a hero like him. In Joss Whedon world, no hero can just…be a hero because they want to help peopleEvery hero has to have some Dark Terrible Thing driving them to be a hero or forcing them to be a hero because Joss Whedon is so cynical he can’t imagine human beings just wanting to be GOOD to each other Sure, you can’t be a hero just because you’re a good person who wants to fight crime like her father whom she admires so much. Nooo. Definitely not. You must go through some trauma first, everybody knows that
America, Memes, and Nasa: The Mississippi River Delta has been an area of intense study for, among other things, the dynamic growth and loss of land experienced in the region due to natural and man-made causes. Although coastal wetlands are typically the topic of conversation, a recent paper published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters (Ortiz, Roy, & Edmonds, 2017) explores how pond expansion due to wind contributes to land loss, an inland erosion process referred to as ‘internal fragmentation.’ The scientists analyzed about 10,000 satellite images taken between 1982 and 2016 by the Landsat 8 satellite (a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey and NASA launched in 2013), and found that ponds in the area tend to grow in the direction of the prevailing winds. Their research led them to suggest that ponds in the Terrebonne and Barataria basins are unstable, where 80 percent of ponds are expanding. This image shows the area of study along the Atchafalaya Delta of Louisiana, which the authors deemed stable due to the fact that there are nearly as many ponds contracting as expanding.
