Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

:/ so Superman gets an updated version of his original costume but wonder woman gets some sexualised leather get up?! OK can Superman Vs Batman get any lamer? Maybe I’m on my own here but I really don’t like this outfit at all.

ADC really need to step it up if they are gonna compete with Marvel Cinematic tbh.

I have to agree. The model(actress?) looks amazing but DC need to step up their game. I mean I’m pretty sure Marvel is currently top dog in the movie department. I’m not sure about the comics because I don’t follow them.

But seriously DC… You can not overly sexualize a woman and still have fans… Look at black widow, Maria hill, Melinda may.

They don’t run around in skimpy little things.

I don’t read anything from DC tbh I looked but there aren’t many female lead titles in there that I could see. Marvel have Black Widow, Elektra, Storm, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk this year alone not to mention a plethora of strong and interesting female characters in other books.

They really take their female audience seriously and are trying to tackle the issue of representation across the board but DC leave a lot to be desired. The best comic book producer next to Marvel has to be Image comics at the moment.

I just…she looks like she stepped out of a BDSM movie. Given the fact that they refuse to make a Wonder Woman movie because they feel people wouldn’t get it? You had a fricking TV show for gods sake so why the hell can’t you make a movie?! Worst excuse ever by the way, they’ve now seemingly reduced her to a side character and turned her into an object for fan boys to drool over. Not cool DC :/

I wouldn’t have much problem with it if they would at least give her some straps.

I’m a martial artist and fighting in a strapless top??? Yeah, no.

I’m guessing none of you have ever even SEEN Wonder Woman because

This is nothing compared to the wonder woman visuals we’ve been getting since she was introduced decades ago.

The costume is true to the character. The leather and metal? Considering she’s a character inspired by Greek Mythology, of course her outfit will reflect that. Her skirt is called a fustanella. MALE Greek soldiers wore that. 

All I’m seeing here is “I don’t like Wonder Woman’s costume because it’s true to her classic design AND her Greek heritage!”

Sexualised in the way that Christian Bale is a sexualised version of Adam West?

Are you people honestly trying to tell me that Marvel movies don’t  sexualize their female characters?

Emma Frost
Mystique

Black Widow

like are you for real

How in earth is a leather catsuit more sexual than what Wonder Woman is wearing?

An argument can be made that Diana’s skirt is too short to be practical to fight in sure, but other than that are you serious?!

Do you want to know what traditional Ancient Greek armor looked like?


(images gotten from a quick google search)

Wonder Woman’s costume is literally the baby of the traditional Wonder Woman costume and Ancient Greek armour.

Leather does not equal sexualization. You think that it does? Go yell at the creative team of that new Batgirl design that everyone loves so much, in which the top is clearly marked to be leather.

First her body type, now her costume. For a group of people who want Diana in a movie so badly, you all seem terribly quick to rip it all apart.

feminist fake nerd girls: never seen Wonder Woman before and therefore piss and moan about her iconic outfit 

"I’ve never read DC comics, but I’m still going to comment on it". 

Seriously? DC has plenty of others too, but you’re not going to know that if you don’t read them (or hell, watch the old Justice League series). I really don’t think people understand just how EXPANSIVE both Marvel and DC are - they aren’t just the Avengers, the X-Men, and the Justice League (and Spiderman). There are TONS of DC super heroines. Take your pick. Put down your Tumblrs and read a comic book once in a while. 

(And for the record, Diana’s costume is a very faithful and modernized version of her typical costume that actually seems more dignified, and I love it).

Fuck Tumblr, and this is why I’m worried about the movies. Marvel ha been bandwagon so hard because they get a few decent movies out and now DC has probably felt super rushed to get some movies out. Not mention that shows people know not much about DC Comics. This is why I’m worried about Power Girl showing up in a movie. Think about the controversy that would cause.

Also what’s sexualized about this? Ya she is showing skin but it isn’t like OMG LOOK AT MY BOOBS

Also we need the the obligatory “What’s wrong with the way I dress” Gif. 

Research Shows SJWs Defeat Their Own Movements

Read it and weep, snowflakes.

Oh my god, this is perfect.

For the dearies who didn’t want to, or didn’t have time to research, here’s a brief summary:

—-Negative Stereotypes—-

From a Q&A with one of the researchers, we learnt that activists (like feminists) “were perceived as militant, aggressive, forceful, argumentative and abrasive.”

By aggressively promoting change and advocating unconventional practices, activists become associated with hostile militancy and unconventionality or eccentricity.

In one study, 17 male and 45 female undergraduate students were randomly assigned to read a profile about a student who was a “typical” feminist (described as conforming to the stereotypes), an “atypical” feminist (described as not conforming to the stereotypes) or someone whose commitment to feminism was not described. All participants then rated the extent to which the stereotypical traits belonged to character they read about, as well as if they were interested in being associated with the character.

The most common traits for “typical feminists” included “man-hating”, “eccentric”, “militant” and “unhygienic”.

—-Aversion to Association—-

Another study, featuring 17 male and 45 female undergraduates, confirmed the pervasiveness of those stereotypes. It further found participants were less interested in befriending activists who participated in stereotypical behavior (such as staging protest rallies), but could easily envision hanging out with those who use “nonabrasive and mainstream methods” such as raising money or organizing social events.

“We found that participants were less motivated to adopt pro-gender equality behaviours when the article was ostensibly delivered by the ‘typical’ feminist rather than by one of the other message sources,” says Bashir.

The results of three additional studies suggested this aversion to perceived stereotypical behavior impacts people’s behavior. They don’t want other people to view them in the same negative view and consequently be attributed with commonly perceived negative stereotypes.

Due to these negative stereotypes, people are reluctant to adopt the behaviours that these movements (like feminism) promote.

“Furthermore, this tendency to associate activists with negative stereotypes and perceive them as people with whom it would be unpleasant to affiliate reduces individuals’ motivation to adopt the pro-change behaviors that activists advocate.”

In contrast, the studies also showed that people are more receptive of the message when it comes from an individual who does not conform to these negative stereotypes.

What does this mean? Are all activists this way?

“It’s important to keep in mind that this research is focused on how activists are perceived by others, rather than how they actually are,” Bashir says. “The militant and eccentric characteristics do not necessarily describe the actual personality traits possessed by activists.”

In conclusion, negative stereotypes are limiting the influence of what are supposed to be progressive and benign social movements.

So how do we deal with the problem of negative stereotypes?

The researchers suggest that the general public “may be more receptive to advocates who defy stereotypes by coming across as pleasant and approachable.”

But there is some value to activists in considering that people do perceive them negatively and maybe they do need to tweak their strategy a bit to take into consideration the way they’re coming across to people.

—-Additional Comments—-

This is a feminist’s response to the research, in which she actively encourages the reader to completely disregard the stereotypes, ignoring the harm the stereotypes are inflicting to their own cause, and the advice given by the researchers (to be more considerate). Feminists should simply ‘fight back’ instead (thereby inadvertently reinforcing those negative stereotypes). Her reasoning being that it’s the privileged people who are censoring activists and smearing the name of feminism.

The solution to that, Mr. Jacobs, isn’t to turn around and waggle fingers at the feminists for being insufficiently smiley (and in doing so to reinforce the false assumption that feminists are… what was the word? “Overwhelmingly negative”?). The solution is to instead push back against the people trying to use their privilege to control the conversation; to push back against the many, many people who use their political, media, and social power to smear the name of feminism in order to intimidate people from claiming that term for themselves.

Not only is she promoting actions that would consequently reinforce the stereotypes she’s offended about, but she is blatantly refusing to acknowledge the militant feminists that exist in great numbers in her movement, and are considerably the most vocal group.

So I implore you, dear keyboard warrior feminists, to realize that saying this

and doing this

is not helping your cause at all.

All you’re doing is proving the negative stereotypes to be true.

Don’t blame The Patriarchy™ if ever your movement ends up in flames incited by your own reckless actions.

Which states have the most people with state pride?

its like the shittier your state is the more pride you have

Maryland has a rain tax and is considering taxing every mile you drive of course everybody wants to move

This is bullshit. Have you ever met a Californian?

what the fuck maryland

I do not believe the one about North Carolina.  I go to school there and they are weirdly proud over very little things.  Like the fact that they drop a giant acorn every year on New Year’s.

This is probably wrong. West Virginian’s bleed pride.
