Americans don’t want hysterical liberals to represent them in government but one network is betting they wants SJWs all over their TVs. The CW is launching a new stand-alone Batwoman series in which the titular character is both a lesbian and a social justice warrior. I have a feeling this will go over about as well as Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid (both of them).
Here’s a dumb thing from The Hollywood Reporter:
The CW is looking to expand its DC Comics world.
The network is teaming with DC’s small-screen universe mastermind Greg Berlanti to develop Batwoman as a TV series. The character of Batwoman will officially be introduced in December as part of The CW’s annual DC series crossover event.
And just check out how awesome this show sounds:
Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet: in a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
Are Kate’s demons that she’s a self-loathing leftist who is completely intolerant of different opinions and ideas? Tune in to the CW to find out.
I imagine in this gritty series that instead of a sexy spandex outfit like traditional Batwoman, that Kate will be dressed in a lot of flannel and Doc Martins, possibly with a sweet lesbian mullet. Then, when she turns into Batwoman she just puts on one of those pink pussy hats so that it looks like she has vaginal bat ears.
Even more exciting will be her work as a social justice superhero. I was going to write “super-heroine” but she’d probably beat me up for using such a gendered term. The possibilities are so wide-open with this concept. SJW Batwoman can beat the hell out of the cis gendered Joker for using inappropriate pronouns with trans people. Then maybe she will wail on caucasian Riddler for refusing to give minority groups a safe spaces to complain about white privilege.
If the show really want to get topical, Batwoman can help shield illegal alien rapists from those evil ICE agents and maybe even assist them trafficking young girls for prostitution. Also, it’d be cool if Batwoman was an abortionist who showed up to terminate pregnancies. She could have a variety of “bat” tools on her utility belt that can crack open unborn baby skulls, chop them up, and then vacuum them out.
They haven’t yet cast the role of Batwoman yet, and that is the key to the success of this project. They can’t cast someone attractive or in-shape because that betrays the essence of the character. They also can’t get a big established star for budget reasons. I think they should get Rosie O’Donnell. She’s fat, ugly, and hateful and could step right into the role. If she’s too busy chewing her toenails and painting anti-Trump pictures, they could get Micheal Moore and it would be about the same thing.
Obviously this show sounds amazing. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see a radical leftist lesbian Batwoman? The only thing that puzzles me is the title. Why didn’t they go with a less gendered name like “Batperson” or “Bathuman”?
