Oracle Writing Campaign

Georgethecat and I are starting a letter writing campaign in regards to Barbara’s shift from Oracle to Batgirl, and why this move is so appalling and problematic.

We’d like to encourage as many people as possible who disagree with it to write to DC and tell them why.

It doesn’t have to be a novel, nor does it have to be overly eloquent. Speak from the heart, tell them how you feel.

Suggested talking points:

  • The rare representation Oracle provides as a disabled super hero
  • The implications of making her able-bodied
  • Barbara’s growth as a character since she abandoned the Batgirl identity
  • The myriad reasons why she’s outgrown it
  • The power disparity between Batgirl and Oracle
  • The rare female legacy that will be undermined by returning her to the role

No one has to do this alone. Post drafts, ask questions, seek suggestions. We’re all in this together.

Tag your letter with “oracle writing campaign” and it will be reblogged here.

DC’s address:

DC Comics
1700 Broadway
New York, NY 10019
