>>86048289>throwing out "Oracle-fag" as if it's an insult
Nigga, I will proudly wear the label of Oracle-fag. I happened to enjoy the only time Barbara was ever interesting or likeable. Batgirl was a gimmick introduced to "prove" that Batman and Robin weren't gay. Oracle was a means to give a new lease on life to a character who had grown to such utter uselessness, that editorial basically threw her to the wolves. That's why she got shot in the Killing Joke, because absolutely nobody gave a flying rat's ass about her. But after that, Joe Ostrander had a thought "Y'know, that seems kind of unfair. Fuck this, I'll use her for something cool.", and made people care about her. Certainly made me care at any rate.
And even then, do Batgirl-fags actually enjoy her as some generic street vigilante who could be replaced with pretty much anyone else? Come on now.
