I've seen women of all shapes and sizes that read comics. Same goes for the men that read them.

@feartheliving: Because i haven't seen a girl in ComicVine !

That isn't what you asked. You asked if girls read comics which seems a little odd, unless you honestly believed out of the whole world we live in there isn't a single female out there that reads comics. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they don't exist. Same here on Comic Vine they're here but I imagine most don't make it known (some do) because why does that even matter? I don't go onto other forums and shout out my gender, do you?

@zeroplus: I would be flattered if you did.

The answer is YES.

Now almost there isnt an activity that both genders dont do it. And now reading comics isn´t a thing that nerds do.

@feartheliving: I just asked because i thought girls are more peaceful, while we boys like action and fighting , and I was just curious to know if girls read comics !

@zeroplus: Well, now you know. Try not stereotype people into categories instead of basing it on the individual, and you shouldn't have this problem in the future.

#21 Edited by Xwraith (17236 posts) - - Show Bio

A significant number of users of this site are girls.

@feartheliving: Thanks for the advice, but being curious isn't a crime !

#23 Posted by TifaLockhart (14044 posts) - - Show Bio

I like action and swordfights and slugfests.

@zeroplus: I never said it was, I simply answered your question and how you can resolve it. I'm not throwing any malice your way if that's what your thinking.

The other user isn't saying that curiosity is a crime, they are simply advocating for a bit of critical thinking. When people adopt the mentality that only some genders (nationalities as well) are interested in some things and they need to be shown examples to believe otherwise it creates problems and barriers for people that hinder all people.

Lots of different types of people read comics, people of different nationality, age, religion, orientation and definitely gender. Its a type of curiosity and question that can be answered by anyone by themselves because they just need to ask if they were female (or any other attribute they don't possess) would they still read comics? In most cases they probably would. There are so many different types of comics and stories and characters etc comics is for everyone. ^_^.

Untrue. Many girls play and enjoy soccer as well. Some even read comics and play soccer at the same time. Cool huh?

Of course not, legend says that if A woman even touches a comic book she'll turn into a man.

#41 Edited by Catsnlynne (1020 posts) - - Show Bio

If a comic book has any romance in it, I won't even touch it. (Yes I am a girl)

I honestly cannot tell if you are trolling or just insanely dense.

Not least of which because the United States Women's National (soccer) Team is far more famous than any of our other teams.

But honestly, it's almost 2014. How is this a thread? It's either serious -- which reflects mindblowing myopia -- or a terrible and outdated "joke." Neither is good.

#45 Posted by SC (12959 posts) - - Show Bio

@akbogert: Could just be a young user or a user from a part of the world where comics (and soccer) aren't that popular and so from their personal experience the idea of a female reading comics (or liking soccer) is foreign or possibly even a combination of age and personal experience.

I agree with your other sentiment though regarding general awareness.

@sc: I've always been under the impression that America cares least about soccer.

But yes, the point was more general awareness. It terrifies me that gender is still considered a potential determinant of interest in an entire medium by anyone.

Perhaps I got a bit jumpy but having been on this site almost a year it bothers me how this issue keeps popping up like some sort of hydra. So I apologize if I sound too intense -- I just tire of seeing this routinely. @zeroplus, I'd recommend two things in the future: as far as this site (or any site, really) goes, try searching to see if a topic has been covered before starting a new thread (because threads like this have been created numerous times). The other recommendation goes for life in general: before asking whether a personal trait (like sex, gender, race, age, orientation) affects someone's affinity for something, ask yourself "Is there a good reason why it should?" Believe me, I've asked my share of ignorant questions in the past, but many of them boil down to "was there any logic behind what you just asked, or did you simply not stop to think?"

In this case, the question would be "Is there a good reason why girls (collectively) would not read comics?" Now I'm not saying there are no answers to that that might lead one to still wonder -- for example, some answers might include "the industry tends to be insanely misogynistic, which would probably drive most women away" and "people act like a girl interested in anything "geeky" can't exist, so maybe there's some self-fulfilling prophecy at work."

But again, it's a twofold problem that made me jump. It's not just close-mindedness at work, but also the fact that it would have been very easy to answer the question yourself (and see that other people have already asked this ad nauseam) with a brief search. Also the fact that Comic Vine has a female reviewer, and that there are constant (every single week) interviews or news articles about the many women who write and draw comics. So I have difficulty imagining how a person could use this site long enough to have garnered hundreds of posts and still be able to ask that question -- which is why I presumed trolling, and that's what made me angry.

Its been years since I saw myself as a "girl" but I still read comics. Bloody, gory stuff and my favourite soccer team is GIF
