For the longest time I would have agreed with you about "The Killing Joke" but after reading more of Moore's work and seeing how women are generally treated, I don't know. I wouldn't put it past him.

Well, it's not so much that I think Alan Moore wouldn't ever write a story wherein the Joker rapes somebody (because I can see that happening, too) -- it's that I don't think he DID write it in "The Killing Joke." His problems with female characters aside (and "The Killing Joke" does have other problems with female characters), I still don't see any evidence that the Joker was meant to have raped Barbara Gordon in "The Killing Joke." That's all.
