Can we talk about how Diana literally picks Barry up and carries him in celebration?
Wonder Woman don’t care. Wonder Woman do what she want. She don’t give no shit.
i like how barry gives no shits. he just goes with it, even throws his arm around her. like, if he’s just been waiting for an exceptionally large badass woman to pick him up bridal style, and carry him.
I’d imagine it’s an honor to be carried by Wonder Woman.
Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!
Look, I ain’t sayin that I don’t think she could kick ass, that’s not my issue. My issue is that we don’t get to see big women, pretty much ever. And Wonder Woman is the Big Woman, she’s an amazon for chrissake. She supposed to tower over everyone, with shoulders wider than a football field and hands that could crush a man’s skull. It’s undeniable that frailty is built into the media’s portrayal of what’s attractive, and Wonder Woman ain’t having any of that.
The new one looks great, but next to superman? Errrr
Give me beefcake Wonder Woman. Give me a femininity symbol that IS aggressive, strong, and powerful.
Ok, I’m with you, but that final note little fucked up
Yes, we desperately need varying expressions of femininity in television. Yes, we’re particularly lacking (what a fuckin understatement) in media representations of women that are anything other than lean &or toned. Yes, I will fight to see Woman Woman built like the Amazonian brick shithouse she by all rights should be
But, with that last line, you’re kinda suggesting that a woman needs to have a large, physical imposing, muscular body in order to “aggressive, strong, and powerful” and that other forms of feminine presentation/women with other body types can’t exhibit these qualities. That’s what the original post was calling out in the first place
Please, argue the point that we need woman of all fuckin shapes and sizes to be represented in media, because we do. Fight until you’re blue in the face for Wonder Woman in particular because her character history does make her a prime fuckin candidate for a different physicality. But, while we’re at it, can we try not to bring the discussion around to a point where we’re going “this particular body type is the one that best embodies aggression, strength and power”
