The live-action movie and the new comics are getting some rough comments, because they are different. But remember, this is someones hard work, and why would anyone want to join onto a project if they couldn't add anything of their own?
I'd love a continuation of the 80's cartoon, but I also very much welcome new interpretations. There's room for both. And what I've seen so far rocks, in my opinion!
I don't agree with the reasons you mentioned to resort to such wording. I don't think having an overweight or lesbian character makes something cr**. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but think I'd listen more if you explained what you meant.
You probably didn't mean to come across so strongly. But let's keep it a bit nicer, okay? :)
