Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics.
Just the other day my boss was telling me how unwelcome he felt the last time he went into the local comics/games/sports memorabilia shop. I told him I felt the same way, and that that was one of the reasons I stopped shopping there.
I’m not trying to negate the accusation of sexism, because it’s most definitely there. My boss and I are both white men; this struck me with how much worse it must be for women who are trying to buy comics.
