lordcaptaingreyjoy:

why does Robert Venditti think that Ystin uses female pronouns though

where did he even get that idea

why has no one corrected him

In all fairness, Ystin himself never does, but his teammates have always gotten it wrong.  I can deal with Vandal Savage never moving passed the whole “I’m both” thing, but I wish Ex would get with the program already.

Grr. This panel in the latest Demon Knights irritated me. Because, um, excuse me—

Atla, having just met the Knights, doesn’t know what Ystin’s preferred pronoun is, but Ex sure as hell does. Having her refer to her former lover as “she” when Ystin has specifically identified with masculine pronouns? Bulllllshit.

Yeah, I feel like Venditti is probably just following in Cornell’s footsteps since he always had everyone refer to Ystin as ‘she.’  I would hope that Ex of all people would know better by this point, though.

Of course, while Yeoh is the first trans character for a capes-and-tights book, she’s not strictly the first trans character in the mainstream or at DC. In the ’90s, both Lord Fanny from Grant Morrison’s “The Invisibles” and Wanda Mann from Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” are both easily identified as transgender, though their debuts didn’t garner the attention this one has due to their removal from big time movie and toy franchise characters.

EXCEPT FOR SIR YSTIN IN DEMON KNIGHTS WHO HAS LITERALLY BEEN AN OPEN TRANSSEXUAL SINCE THE REBOOT BEGAN.

LOOK AT THIS SUAVE BADASS.

SIR YSTIN HAS BEEN SLAYING MONSTERS AND STEALING THE HEARTS OF AMAZONS SINCE ISSUE ONE.

ISSUE FUCKING ONE.

YES, YEOH’S INCLUSION AS A TRANSSEXUAL IS IMPORTANT.

WE NEED MORE INCLUSION IN COMICS.

BUT DON’T FORGET/IGNORE THE GROUNDBREAKING, TABOO-SHATTERING CHARACTERS ALREADY IN CONTINUITY JUST BECAUSE THEY AREN’T IN THE BAT-FAMILY OR WRITTEN BY GAIL SIMONE!

(No offense to Mrs. Simone, of course)

EDIT

And now it looks like DC Women Kicking Ass has conveniently forgotten about Sir Ystin, too.

I just…I need a minute….

(via filmsfoodandfandom)

Don’t worry Sir Ystin, you are the #1 trans character in my heart.

dccomicconfessions:

“Demon Knights is so underrated that it’s sinful. It’s funny, action-packed, has good art, and not bogged down by a terrible storyline. I love how the team is nicely balanced in terms of gender, and a character line up that includes a smart Arab, badass paraplegic, queer Amazon, a trans/intersex character, and lesbian princesses.”
