I know that most (if not all) of our posts have been specifically surrounding the anti-abortion laws around the country. But I thought I would take a moment and discuss something extremely important:
The controlling of, or desire to control women's sexuality is part of the fuel to these outrageous laws. Yet, in our society, over-sexualizing women is dramatized, romanticized, media endorsed, and quite often apparent even in the early stages of our lives.
How many of you out here are Comic book fans? As in, the old time, superhero vs villain, saving the beautiful lady who will never know your real identity comic book fan? A few? Many? Lots?
Personally I've never been able to get on board with Graphic Novels or Manga. This dislike of mine originally developed from my sense of, "Where is the story?" rather than a distaste of their portrayal of women and men.
But the more these original Comics are made into movies, the more apparent it has become to me, that the majority of the women depicted in the comics are sexualized and / or drawn as "Femme Fatales".
The new Justice League cover emphasizes this blatant sexualizing of women and heroically muscular men.
|Hey there Wonder Woman! Nice panties!|
Well, the wonderful people over at Bleeding Cool decided to make their own artistic rendition of what some the most well known male Superheroes would look like if they were sexually depicted the same way, as let's say, Wonder Woman.
|That's totally hot, right?|
I'd like to quote my father right now, who always gave me straight forward and accurate information regarding sex.
"Men are like basketball players, they dribble before they shoot."
Soooo..... any male counterparts want to go to next year's Comic-Con with me dressed like Bleeding Cool's Superheros?
