The DCnU: Now with more fail than ever!
Backstory: DC Comics has rebooted their entire universe with the DCnU and "The New 52", with 52 first issues of their titles, including Action Comics and Detective Comics. And new versions of familiar characters. Some of them more different than others. This has been... controversial to say the least. But where the fail has really hit the fan has been with DCnU!Starfire and Catwoman.
DCnU!Starfire is basically a scantily-clad wish fulfillment object in the first issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws #1. DCnU!Catwoman had sex with Batman at the end of Catwoman #1.
Comics Alliance's Laura Hudson has a well-written, well thought out response.
And another well-written response from a female fan.

Shortpacked! does the math.
What does DC Comics have to say for themselves? "Pay atention to the ratings."
Edit: thisfishflies reminds me that if you value keeping your blood pressure low, you should avoid reading the comments with those links.
And spawn_of_kong points out Linkara's reactions to these changes (and others) for those who are interested.
Edit #2: anarchicq says there's a survey being done by DC. But they only want to hear from certain people.
