Quick, Robin... to the Women's Batlib!

Maybe I should be more disturbed by this than I am. Why did the writers feel it necessary to have Batgirl willing to let Batman and Robin die just so she can explain the Federal Equal Pay Law? It's as if the U.S. Department of Labor is trying to say, "Pay these broads! They're crazy! These bitches will blow your ass up in all kinds of womanly explosions!"

Then again, Batman is sort of written to be an asshole too ( his dismissive "No time for jokes, Batgirl" is deserving of a bat-slap), so I guess it's equal opportunity strangeness after all. Thanks, 1974!

That is funny.!.

Wasn't that Batman series written to be a sort of tongue-in-cheek comedy?

I always thought so....but if that's not the case, then that is disturbing.
