Also, for me, the personality-related line of argument lost all legitimacy the minute they said Damian could be Robin. Steph is too impulsive; I know, let's make the next Robin a complete and utter psychopath! He's definitely worth the effort when she wasn't, because he's...related to Bruce? And thus somehow worth more, because we all know it's not who you are in this game, it's who you're related to? Or is it because he needs more help to not be a psychopath? And this is somehow easier and more rewarding than helping Steph not be impulsive?
Or is it because she argues? God forbid someone have to explain themselves and deal with training someone who's going to ask why! And, y'know, it's not like she has issues with authority stemming from the way she was raised, or anything! I'm sure you can just assume that she'll obey your every order without question, and when she doesn't it'll be her problem, not yours for utterly failing to understand how to work with her! She doesn't respond well to arbitrary authority figures...gee, wonder why? It's certainly her fault for not being a "soldier", not my fault for never explaining a damn thing!
