Your first mistake is to act as if this is debatable. It’s not. This is how she feels (all the “I” statements, she’s clearly not talking on anyone’s behalf but her own, and she states clearly that this is not a blanket characterization), you cannot “disagree” with it. Anyway, it’s odd that when a woman expresses her feelings about the discomfort she feels at a comic store your first instinct is to criticize it and defend the industry where you claim “people are always trying to scare girls away”. Maybe what’s scaring women away isn’t that people like the author are bad-mouthing the comic industry, but that the comic industry is doing things worth bad-mouthing.
