Amy originally believed that Sally would pardon Sonic because Sally was so close to him. Even when Sally admitted that she was still going to put Sonic on trial, Sally broke it to her gently, instead of sneaking around and being dishonest like Fiona did.
Umm so why didn't Mina
slap Sally for trying to give her tips on how to get Sonic, but then tiptoes and takes Sonic from her anyway despite knowing Mina liked him? Second of all it's still inconsistent because Amy didn't hesitate to confront Sally about things she felt were important like why she wasn't allowed to be a freedom fighter, but won't confront Sally about something that'd probably be equally if not more important, like about how Sally slapped Sonic?
Also, it's somewhat implied that Sally may have been Amy's "Aunt" as much as Tails'. Especially given how Sally wanted Sonic to be a good role model for Amy. She might have a certain amount of affection/respect for Sally due to being raised by her.
Amy wasn't raised by Sally, she's only been with them for a year at BEST before her physical change, and if anything Sally was a thorn in her side for joining the freedom fighters, and blamed it on trying to keep her away from Sonic, while they reward Tails to be a freedom fighter despite his reckless decision to go solo. Tails may've faced more perils, but they chose to make him a freedom fighter right after doing something that could've gotten him killed.
Because she was starry-eyed blind in her defence of Sonic to the point where she didn't have reserves left to assign emotions towards anyone else
Soooo can you still explain why Mina didn't slap her? Or why an older Amy didn't slap her?
Wait...Are you saying that Ken's writing sucks because he was a Democrat and not a Republican?
Umm no that wasn't what she was saying at all. Ken's writing is liberal to the degree that it feels like his writing is just there to make a point and not actually be entertaining. He's so consumed by his political messages, that it supercedes his ability to tell a story. He cares more about preaching about what women should be (i.e by altering Sally's original character) than just telling a story. He wants to be "feminist" but he comes from such social privledge that he doesn't know how to be pro woman and depict many different
types of women who can maintain dignity and respect.
If anything, the fact that gay characters can exist in a story without their sexuality being a huge controversial plot point shows that gay acceptance may finally be increasing; It's more "normal" in the context of newer stories, as in real life. I'm all for this portrayal.
I'm not. Mainly because of the fact that it feels like the writers would come across as cold and indifferent to the struggles that gay people have to go through because of their sexuality in the real world, a world where gay acceptance may be increasing, but is not nationwide. Not to mention it's practically not sensitive enough towards the people who aren't pro gay, and wouldn't want their children reading a book with gay characters in it. A comic book such as this one that is damn sure not Marvel's calibur is not going to pave the golden way for gay acceptance. So this book shouldn't have the conceited aim that it will, and at the very most focus rather on the fact that this is a real issue.
I did read carefully, and I still don't see why a gay character needs to be expanded on in regards to their gay relationship.
This is a kids comic, and at the very least if you're going to expose kids to this (possibly without the consent of the parents who may not know until it's too late that you're putting this in it), you should at least present it as it is without the context of the story taking sides: A divided issue that has its advantages and disadvantages. the problem with a storyline like this is that it can make Sonic seem too insensitive a particular side should he take one.
Are you suggesting that Robotnik liked Sally?O_o Or am I misunderstanding you
Actually he DID like Sally when she was disguised as a sorceress....and wanted to marry her
