It’s been said that people who get away with bad behavior once have the propensity to do it again. There’s no better example for that than misogynists and sex offenders. That’s how Harvey Weinstein got away with decades of abuse. That’s how rape culture morphed into something deeply ingrained in our society, it’s so hard to call it out.
In an interview for the upcoming movie Justice League, the cast was asked which female superhero they’d want to include in the team if given the chance. Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher, who play The Flash and Cyborg respectively, gave decent answers. As Ray was trying to explain what they’d do with the new character, Ben cut him off. “I think it would just create a different dynamic, you know? But—”
“Are you following the news at all?” cut in Ben. Which no one acknowledged, except with disgusted looks.
