What She Means:
Barney and Robin were the most awesome god damn couple ever and they should not have broken apart just because of a simple travel issue. I find it hurtful that the writers would literally spend an entire season focused on these two's wedding and then within the first 10 minutes of the episode directly following the ceremony have them break up (while also breaking hearts) just so that they can put Robin with a half-fast reunitement of Robin and Ted despite Ted already being with the most perfect human being ever. So what do they do? They kill her off, just so they can put these two characters who have had no success in romantic relationships with each other. So not only do they destroy one adorable and beloved couple but two. Yes, I am still bitter over this.
Alright so I’m sure Robin actually told Artemis who he was in some like normal way, like “oh hey by the way my real name is Dick Grayson we go to school together haha” but the way I like to think she found out is this:
Dick has two different phones: one for Robin bc he and the team have a group chat & some other reasons probably and one for Dick Grayson and he probably texted her and was like “hey can you do the essay for the English project? Babs and I are doing the poster but we don’t have time to write the essay bc we’re both busy tonight cuz Bruce is making me go to some dumb party and Babs has gymnastics until 10:30”
but he didn’t realize he texted her on Robin’s phone until he sent the message
the following are NOT reasons why batkids are allowed to be child vigilantes:
-bruce is an abusive parent
-bright colors draw bulletfire
-sidekicks are convenient
-he enjoys putting children in danger
-child soldiers are cool and fun
actual reasons why batkids are allowed to be child vigilantes:
-in 1940 dc wanted a kid hero for their target audience to relate to, and it was a very successful move
-when comics got darker later, dead sidekicks made for easy manpain
trying to hold the very fact of kid sidekicks against bruce (and ollie, barry, etc) is so pointless. before even getting into comic verses theres certain things you just have to accept: people are taken seriously while fighting crime in costume, glasses can disguise superman, and sometimes kids take on armed criminals with limited combat experience. (usually theyre fine). just always keep in mind what the characters are responsible for and whats just the industry.
