If it's him, it can't be rape. Writers aren't allowed to have bad guys be rapists anymore. Now if they write about that, that means the writer is advocating rape.

This is from a 2016 article I found. She's even more diverse, she is Canadian.

'Tamaki thinks telling these kinds of stories about minorities is important. She adds “I certainly think as a queer, Asian, chubby teenager I did not see a lot of queer, Asian chubby teenagers hanging out in my library.” She also wants to see stories of immigration and what it means to be First Nations as a greater part of Canadian literature.'
As I said, only People Like That want to read about or look at People Like That. And that's a VERY small number of people.

As for the rest... typical Liberal Echo Chamber stuff. And they get mad when they get called "elitist" and "out of touch". When you create an environment where ONLY people who agree with you 100% are allowed to speak... well, there ya go.

It's okay. People of sound mind still know trash when they see it. Even if they're not "allowed" to say so in a public setting.

Never pegged Penguin for a rapist. He might just kill the women instead cause he'd be pissed off she's so turned off by him.

Penguin's never even been all that bloodthirsty of a guy, really. Like he's HAD people killed if he had a deep personal grudge or if they were in the way of some sort of business deal and he needed them out of the picture, but even then, he'd usually just assign henchmen to do that sort of thing.

He's never been a thug, primarily speaking. He's always considered himself a "high-class criminal" and a lot of things are just flat-out beneath someone like him.

Things like that may have crept into some of the more modern interpretations after Burton's movie, but they're not at all true to the character. DeVito could have been a fantastic Penguin with much better material, but his sex-crazed, hyper-violent portrayal was wrong, wrong, wrong. And it's part of why I borderline hate that goddamn movie. It's got style for days and everyone plays the material they're given to the hilt, but... the material is wrong. That's not at all who ANY of those characters are. That's not who Penguin is, that's not who Catwoman is... the closest one they got "right" was Bruce himself, who ironically enough is barely in the damn movie. And since it gets so much completely wrong, I really hate it when stuff from that movie creeps up elsewhere. It's a great "Tim Burton Movie" but a pretty awful and borderline blasphemous "Batman Movie".

But yeah, rant aside, Penguin wouldn't rape anyone and he's barely ever even killed anyone himself. Had people killed, yes. Actually gotten his own hands dirty, hardly at all. Too "low-class". That's what Hired Goons are for.

That movie gives me a f*cking ice cream headache.

The entire "plot" is held together by scotch tape and chicken wire! The whole thing is just "Weirdness For Weirdness Sake". Blech.

I mean it's fun once in a while but so is eating an entire jar of cake frosting.
