Mecha has a good point: Change starts with YOU
Nine times out of ten, women with DD breasts do NOT look like barbie unless they are fake. I should know, I am one of these women.
What? You're a skinny girl with big fake boobies? Heh, don't mind me, it's just with the wording you can take that either way :)
Mlai, Supergirl is still
unusual, her waist narrows ways too much on the sides before flaring out at the hips. Female swimmers (with naturally built up bodies) have all around built up, rounded bodies and massive
shoulders (a good portion of evenly spread bodyfat all over). And the runners have waisted, gaunt looking limbs with thick torsos, way too much muscle definition, and no discernible bodyfat at all
Rather than being an athletic combo of all those sorts of archetypes, she looks like she's simply got a masculanised “supermodel” figure from a little bit of steroid love, as well as the old silicone implants. But I say: fair enough
. SO what if it's highly atypical, there's a market for it and a lot of people appreciate it. Comic characters don't have to look “real” to be any good, I mean, I love the Charlie Brown characters but I'd be horrified to see a real
Lucy walking down the street towards me. Not to mention a “Marge Simpson”, Jebus! o_O
The “BBW” images of Wonder Woman on this blog
could also be considered negative, exploitative, unhealthy stereotypes of women… But there's people who like that sort or thing, male bodies are depicted similarly skewed as well in superhero comics etc… The whole argument seems out of date really, as well as misplaced, misdirected and inappropriate. People aren't truly annoyed about depictions of women, what they're annoyed about is an art style
that doesn't appeal to them so much that they complain about it and use spurious reasons to rationalise some kind of righteous justification for that annoyance, without even realising that's what's really happening. :)
A feminist critique should focus on the roles the sexes seem to be stuck with a lot of the time in this media, not the way they look, that's just so superficial. lol!
