    what’s wrong with large breasts?! jeebus christ. wonder woman is strong and powerful, but she can’t be a spokesperson because she is curvy and wears tights?! that’s rolling backwards, not forwards!!

      I dunno, it’s gimmcky, fair enough, but she’s an identifiable icon, and we shouldn’t be too proud to be inspired by myhs and fables or let others be inspired by them. Albeit a corporate-owned myth and fable, admittedly. But I do get the ‘were there no real women’ criticism and why that’s frustrating.

        Wherever there is anything remotely feminist, you’ll be sure to find the Clampers Outside, ready to sh%^ all over it. Bravo old chap!

            Tally-ho!! I can only commend your cherry-picking abilities and hope you will teach me the wonders of your pseudo-critical approach!

            Hear, I’ll help you, it’s very straight forward.

            Equity-feminism is the part of feminism about equality. It’s the same as egalitarianism. The rest is, for the vast majority of it, is bullpoo and pseudo academia.

            Hope that helps, no cherry picking required.

      Do you honestly think that’s a good piece? I can’t get much out of it beyond invective and the noise of a thousand whooshes. And the back-patting is embarrassing. ‘I said: “If sex were really a cultural construction, why don’t men menstruate? Why don’t men have babies? Why are there no women on professional football teams?”’

      The answer, of course, is ‘Some of them do, some of them have, and what the hell are you blithering about?’

        Did you even read it :)

        “biological sex” doesn’t exist according to that muppet that passes for a professor. What would he know, gender studies doesn’t teach or acknowledge the role of biology and basis of it’s “theories” is solely on “social” and the idea that gender* is a ‘social construct’.

        Well, I’m sorry to inform you, but there is such a thing as biological sex, and it’s evident in the brains of babies before birth in how their brains form.

        * please note it is gender studies that make a distinction between sex and gender. It’s a theory many buy into. Heck, look it up, your gender is *cough* a product of colonialism according to these muppets.

        I choose not to believe this pseudo academic claptrap. You can choose to believe in it, and other nonsense like ‘gender expression’ if you want. And no, it is not transphobic or any other phobic to believe what I believe, as do many, many trans people…. why don’t you google it.
