Meet Elsa Charretier, comicbook writer and artist for Star Wars.
According to Wookieepedia:
Elsa Charretier is a French comic book writer, illustrator and comic book artist who has worked on a number of Star Wars projects so far, mainly Star Wars Adventures from IDW Publishing and its spin-off miniseries Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. She often works with another French comic book writer, Pierrick Colinet.
Recently, Elsa posted an anecdote about a sexist and misogynist knuckle dragger in a comic book shop. Now, we all know how SJW anecdotes that are intended to prove a political point usually turn out. So it should come as no surprise that when folks started to ask her to provide something to prove that her story was true, she quickly deleted the tweet.
But, someone helpfully screencapped it for her. Those of you familiar with the “boys at school bullied a girl for liking Star Wars” anecdotes will appreciate this.
And keep in mind, this woman lives in Paris, France. Paris. The City of Love and Absinthe. Did you ever think you’d live to see the day when the French became prudes? Say goodbye to the French Maid outfit. And I guess they won’t be harboring Roman Polanski for much longer. But I digress.
Of course, people are getting wise to these kinds of anecdotes and their political purposes. So they started calling her out.
In response, she deleted her original post and then blamed Comicsgate.
Of course, it’s all a persecution of wahman.
Never ever. And it’s all Comicsgate’s fault.
Social networks are very complicated! But I still find it hard to understand how someone who was surely not present claimed that you were lying!
These are comicsgate. They don’t try to understand, they target and harass all the people who express themselves
Ah bug, what a wound these guys ….
But, cooler heads know that even if this story is true, it doesn’t mean misogyny.
I can’t imagine why so many young girls are turning into misandrists with great stories like these.
