Except of course that's not what I said What I said was this:

"The only thing I will mention, the only thing that did surprise me, was the
degree to which some folks have turned on *Gwen*. I've heard of the
madonna/whore dynamic, but I've never actually seen it played out this
strenously. I can't even begin to count the number of posts I've seen from
folks who are
calling Gwen a slut, a whore, and a tramp...that this destroys her as a
person...that it would be better if she had been raped than having had
consensual sex."

My comments were meant to be general in nature. You are trying to change them
into a specific rap against this newsgroup.

If you want to get an eyeful, go over to newsarama.com and do a search for gwen
and slut, tramp or whore. Or just read through the threads there in the
talkback and review sections. Go on over to comicboards.com or the
insidepulse.com forums the comicbookresources forums...you'll get more than
enough of this.

Go take a look for yourself, don't take my word for it. Or just do a google
search with those terms.

It's not like I'm making this shit up, you know.
