SOME INFO ABOUT MYSELFBeing the selected wisdom of a certain writer of adventure picto-books, Gail Simone.
jasontkacs asked: Gail are you the new writer for Earth 2
I am not.
jonesinforjosie asked: also, transgender is already an adjective. It is isn't a verb. So it can't become a gerundive. So "transgendered" is both wrong and insulting
Understood…but where did I use ‘transgendered?’
If I did, it most certainly was an accident, for which I would apologize. I know it’s ‘transgender.’
Are we talking about something I said or something someone else said? I’m honestly not sure what you are referring to.
Anonymous asked: How would you feel if someone were to cosplay Tremor? ^0^
I know of two MOVEMENT cosplayers already, would LOVE to see some of the others!
Anonymous asked: I think transvestite isn't the preferred term? I think generally they prefer crossdresser; the slur mill in action.
I thought about that afterwards.
Is this correct, is the preferred term ‘crossdresser?’
Asking those who know for sure, would not want to be using a term that is considered a slur.
I swear, I can’t stop watching that little tag at the end with Smaug’s head coming around the corner. I cannot even explain how much I love that design, cartoon eyes and all. It’s amazing. Perfect.
This may still be up for revision, maybe it’s not the final design. But I HOPE it is. It’s fantastic.
wonkawarden asked: What do you think would happen if Ragdoll and Mouse met?
Well, the obvious thing.
MONKEY/RAT DISCO NIGHT AT THE BOWLING ALLEY!
Anonymous asked: Hey Gail! Big fan! Out of curiosity, has DC ever approached you/you approached DC before about doing something related to the Teen Titans? Would you have done it if given the chance?
I did two fill-in issues of the Teen Titans a few years ago and they just didn’t turn out well, and it still stings, so I would love the chance to fix that karmic debt, but not at the moment. Maybe in a couple years?
Anonymous asked: Just curious but is Mouse related at all to the Batman villain known as The Ratcatcher?
Someone on the team is related to a villain. Is it Mouse?
fodigg asked: You were recently asked about your thoughts on a transgender Batgirl and were enthusiastic; you were also asked about Mr. Lobdell bringing Misfit into the DCNU via the Outlaws book and were excited but expressed the hope that "not too much" would be changed. Would you mind if they went with a transgender Misfit? Or do you like the idea? Personally I could see it work, and I already think of her as "a Batgirl".
I never thought of Charlie as an official Batgirl, she only wore the cowl for a tiny period of time.
I certainly have nothing against the idea of her being trans, except that it wasn’t on my mind when I created her and I tend to have a set idea of what a character is like once that process is finished.
But that’s only a personal thing, really, and it only relates to my personal memory of the character’s creation. I would have no problem if the new52 Misfit was trans. I just want her back.
