Buddy "sissy" is gender attribute hate. We offend SM's possibility of gender non specific association. Not acceptable.Maybe we could say "sissy pants" but probably not. But here in the real world; Aquaman's heart is not as pure as SM's. Marvel abilities aside SM is a true Superman. Aquaman is merely an avenger. Not even same league. ( I loved using S&M for Superman;-)
Traditional Superman - no. Modern deconstructed Superman who is afraid to use his powers, hates average humans, proudly renounced his American citizenship and had the hero taken out of his "superhero" status by deconstructionists who thought an American icon needed to "be brought down a notch" - yes.
Kind of sounds like the fake guilt notions that come out of Hollyweird. We can't have heroes because that means that the lazy bastard sitting on the barstool at the end of the bar doesn't deserve the same respect as the beat cop in Detroit.
