NOTE: That wasn't meant to come off creepy... I should have elaborated.
reminds me of myself and my BFF, she's a manga fan. I always get disturbed by the presentation of sex in manga and the fact so many western women read it. Its a lot like the obsession with Spike the attempted Rapist in Buffy. There is a line between titilating resistance and No means no that so many writers cross. Of course its not just a female issue, Nightwing was raped of course and that was very graphic.
I've finally got to watch this, and I find it amusing that you guys raised yaoi since I thought of that before I'd even seen the video. All in all, I think rape is more prevelent in the yaoi genre. I've seen some pretty explicit stuff on a site I used to mod and the only thing I enjoyed about it was deleting it... and then telling the crying fan-girls to grow up & consider the feelings of parents who also use the site. I have a very VERY good friend who is a yaoi fan-girl, and as much as I love her to bits I just don't understand the obsession with fanfics and hentai doujins featuring popular characters being raped by dominant male adversaries.

It's good to have women in comics as readers. It is a market played towards male feelings, and that not the way it should. I see it as being fare is fare. Everyone is equal no matter skin color, or in this case, gender. Personally, I think that Brian Bendis has done things in his Avengers books such as Tigra being raped by The Hood, and Morgana Le Fay having her head ripped off by the Sentry as gross, that has completley turned me off of all his books, and that turns off the fact of getting new female readers into comics.
