Oddly enough, I haven't run across this on the internet before. Considering Steph got OMGPREGNANT once, it's surprising I haven't heard more internet idiots saying she's a bad person because of it. But this still pissed me off.
Eww, I never even considered the possibility that Steph might be the new Batgirl. I hope they don't go that way.
She's so promiscuous and will probably just get pregnant again.
Yes. That's right, boys and girls. If you get pregnant once, you will probably just get pregnant again and again and again. Even if you, IN CANON, said you regretted your decision, if you regretted making this mistake, if you carried the baby to full term and CRIED when you had to give it up. Clearly, you will jump right back into the bed, because, OMG underage sex, that makes you a FILTHY FILTHY WHORE who just LOVES it.
The girl who runs the fansite replied like this:
All we know is that she slept with one guy. One. If that makes a person promiscuous, every being in this world is a whore.
(Well, not me, I'm a virgin) But, good point right? Unfortunately, apparently your whoreishness is not measured by the number of people you slept with, but the CHARACTER of the person you slept with. After all, falling for someone who is a jerk...NEVER HAPPENS. Or hey, maybe you just wanted to have some sex for fun, and the guy was good at it. WHORE, ONLY GUYZ ARE ALLOWED TO DO DAT.
Did you actually see the guy who got her pregnant? He made a brief appearance in an issue of Robin (Steph kicked his ass).
He's some stonerish white guy with dreads. If her standards are so low that she'll sleep with him, I find it hard to believe he's the only guy she's had sex with.
I'd argue that dating Tim has only made her more promiscuous. If she couldn't control herself before (as evidenced by stonerish white guy with dreads), trying to stay faithful to a no-sex guy like Tim has probably had a compressed spring effect on her. She no doubt goes off every so often. A dirty weekend here and there.
OH GOD, it couldn't be that she was depressed because her life SUCKED and she wanted to some comfort and Tim was avoiding her at the time? If I had a stoner mom and a criminal dad and a avoidant guy who screwed with my head, I might engage in some sex with the nearest loser to forget my troubles too too.
And I love the epic logic...staying faithful to Tim was just keeeping her WHORISHNESS INSIDE. It is READY TO COME OUT. Ignore the fact she MANAGED to stay faithful to Tim with no effort whatsoever, that she was upset when HE supposedly cheated on HER. Clearly, she defiled her body once (and kicked said boy's ass, but that doesn't mean she didn't realize sleeping with him was a mistake NO WAY)
And clearly once you have sex, you are ADDICTED TO IT and can never give it up. It like, boils inside you or something.
And oh god...a DIRTY WEEKEND. Whatta slut, having sex and enjoying it. Sooooo wrong.
Y'know what, Steph could have all the sex she wants, and it still wouldn't make her a worse person or a bad Batgirl. She'd just have to remember to use protection (and get over her Dixon-implanted issues with abortion, in case that doesn't work.)
Because guess what? Being sexually active isn't bad. Even casual sex isn't even if you're responsible about it and consider people's feelings.
So stop with the slut-shaming, stupid internet person. Steph had sex. Just because you can't get any, doesn't mean you have to be mad at her for getting some. (low blow, but he was asking for it. He was so projecting. And you KNOW it's a guy. )
