Sometime last year, some folks got upset on Twitter over a panel that starting makings rounds of idw April’s “butch” haircut which Campbell introduced, even though that issue had been out for several years already and April’s hair had long since grown back long in the current issues. Might be the reference:

Yeah I don't think anything too weird was done with April in IDW. She hasn't discovered she's gay or that she always wanted to be born a man.... yet.

People got upset about that? It's not even styled like a man's short cut, that's a woman's pixie cut and supposedly been around since at least the 50s... lol

The only thing I remember about IDW April people brought up is how she named the Turtles instead of Splinter. But it makes sense in this version since the Turtles had human Japanese names from Splinter so it wouldn't make sense for him to name them after Renaissance painters in this version.

Actually my join date is in 2013, and I lurked here even earlier. I don't like posting here much because of the awful gatekeeping attitudes, sexism, racism and bigotry that I constantly see. It's gross. I mostly only visit here to see some of the latest tmnt toy spottings, or find comic info. Luckily there are starting to be more resources on the web so I do have to subject myself to this cesspool as much.

I like talking tmnt with anyone reasonable and friendly. Hope you stick around, despite how polarizing this place can be, myself included.

Truth be told, I was sent here as a "plant" many years ago, by my masters at Viacom. I worked hard to boost confidence in the TMNT Chia-Pet line.

Yet, the warmness and generosity of the technodrome community...it changed me. Now I work covert to expose any other plants who may try to breach our safe-space.

I can tell you Beardcore is not a plant.

Great. Just what we need - another guy who misattributes any observations as "the isms" and mentally-assigns any disagreeable position as an assault on a human surface-characteristic.

And as a result of my own exceptionally deep biases-against-stupidity I am immediately galvanized against this guy.

For once I agree with you. He is clearly his own independent thinker. Reddit is also a good place for that.

If by “gatekeeping”, you mean we actually respect the source material and want to protect it from any form of perversion, then yeah, we’re gatekeepers.

If by “sexism”, you mean we don’t support lazily photoshopping boobs on established male characters and creating tasteless Mary Sue’s for “representation”, then yeah, we’re sexists.

If by “racism”, you mean we don’t like the idea of raceswapping because it’s disrespectful toward black people who want authentic black characters and not blackfaces, then yeah, we’re racists.

If by “bigotry”, you mean we’re not virtue-signaling brown-nosers who worship at the altar of wokeism and we treat others equally no matter their race, gender, or sexuality, then yeah, we’re bigots.

I can't believe fat black obese April is now a thing. And we all thought Megan Fox April was as bad as it would get back in 2014. It can always get worse.
