my new love is Wonder Woman.

Sorry in advance if I spam your dash with her (not that I have yet). I’m pretty much reading everything I can get my hands on. Just got almost all of Gail Simones run of Wonder Woman (only missing issues 37 & 44) and I couldn’t be happier.

I also really love Supergirl. I love Babs/batgirl but needed a break after reading the issues with the Joker. Didn’t even finish them. I love Gail Simone but holy shit, that just creeped me out. So expect posts about them as well.

There are so many people upset with the new costume of Supergirl because she isn’t baring any skin at all. People say that her hands/midriffs/thighs should be bare, and the tights make her look like a grandma. Well, first of all, no. No. Stop sexualizing female superheroes. There are comments on IGN where men say that “supergirl is meant to be sexually attractive to men and now they won’t want to watch the show”. Don’t. Women do not exist to be sexually attractive to men.
For the record, this costume looks pretty badass to me. In an age where everyone has a decent camera phone, Supergirl can hardly afford to be flying around in a miniskirt that literally makes it impossible to fight without flashing someone. The bare midriff? Not professional, or practical. That’s like expecting Superman to be shirtless, and wearing boxer shorts instead of tights. The costume is form-fitting and conservative, like they’re meant to be. It’s street smart, dark, and practical. And it completely complements Henry Cavill’s Superman costume. That one, if you remember, outlines all his muscles, but plays it conservative in the crotch area, unlike the comics where he literally wears red underwear outside his suit. I don’t see why Kara Danvers should be overly sexualized with boobs and bare skin when Clark Kent isn’t?
Black Canary, The Huntress, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Gamora, Black Widow, Mockingbird, these are the female characters from the comics on TV right now, and they all have 21st century pragmatic outfits that help them. Hold the women in the same standard you hold men. That’s what equality is.
