DC Comics' Reponse to Starfire Controversy: Don't let your kids read our comics

We weren't the only ones who were moved by one seven-year-old fan's take on the new "sexpot" version of Starfire in DC Comics' Red Hood and the Outlaws. A lot of other people seemed to be hoping that DC would take these comments on board — not just about the sexed-up character, but about the fact that she seems not to do anything heroic.

And last night, DC did respond on Twitter, writing:

We've heard what's being said about Starfire today and we appreciate the dialogue on this topic. We encourage people to pay attention to the ratings when picking out any books to read themselves or for their children.

In other words, "It's your own fault if you let your kids read our comics." Which, honestly, seems to be missing the point a bit.
