You may say I’m a dreamer
but the media men beg to differ
The rape ONLY happened in Grant Morrison’s retcon of their relationship. Despite what Morrison wrote, this was NOT how Bruce and Talia met, and this was NOT how any of their MANY prior sexual relations were like. Grant Morrison himself has said that he never read the comics prior to writing Batman and Son, etc., and that he “misremembered” the fact that Talia isn’t a fucking rapist and they didn’t just meet one day in the desert before Talia decided she wanted his sperm.
It’s not “weird” to be disappointed by the movie incorporating that bit of terrible writing into their version of Talia, when the rest of the film pretty strongly distanced itself from Morrison’s shitty characterization and instead drew upon her prior personality.
It’s not “weird” to be horrified by DC using rape as a “sexy” component of a romantic scene.
It’s not “weird” to be disgusted that DC decided to imply that Bruce actually enjoyed being raped.
It’s not “weird” to question why DC would include a rape storyline in one of it’s movies when it could so easily be ignored.
It’s not “weird” to be alarmed that DC decided to have a character rape the other character and then portray them as the main romance in the movie.
