Recently, a podcast held by Paul Dini and Misty Lee has been causing a bit of a stir, most of which centers around a particular quote spoken by Ms. Lee. (The podcast can be found here, and the link is courtesy of Thom Wade at In One Ear…

The Video Store Girl points out a different interpretation to Ms. Lee’s statement.
RETRACTION: After a closer reading of this passage, pointed out by the David the G. Esquire, I find that my interpretation of it was incorrect and taken out-of-context.
Misty Lee is NOT saying that “ugly fat chicks” are the only ones who complain about cheesecake in comics. She was saying that *she has heard* that other people on the Internet have said this (and that she does not necessarily agree with that)
