Sad, isn’t it. Harleen Quinzel was a doctor here at Arkham until the Joker twisted her mind. Ha! You’re just jealous because you don’t have a fella who’s as lovin’ and loyal to you as my Puddin’ is to me!
The sad thing about our
society is that women are put in one of two categories. You’re either
in the beautiful category and you’re seen as sexy and beautiful, or some
version of that, or you’re put into another category.The latter
category affords women the opportunity to be smart, funny, independent,
mean, strong, intelligent and opinionated. We take them seriously as
politicians, if they fit into that latter category. We respect their
opinions more and give them higher expectations. That latter category is
what allows female actors to be characters.
