Sisters Are Doin' It For ThemsELVES

A backlash has really heated up in recent times regarding how women are being depicted in comics and fantasy works. Recently an image depicting how silly male superheroes would look in the poses given female characters made the rounds. And a Tumblr blog came to light via Boing Boing called Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor that depicts... Well, it depicts exactly what it says it does. So for all you ladies out there tired of the Elf Tramps and Super Sluts, this one's for you.

I've spoken at some SciFi conventions and while waiting for my turn to talk, I'd walk through the art gallery of anime women with enormous perfectly round breasts and wondered about the collective emotional age of the men who are into this crap. But, I guess women are just as guilty. Look at any romance novel cover-no balding paunchy middle-aged men there.

I have to say I wonder at the armor for a lot of fantasy characters. It is lovely to see everyone's wonderful figure, but it seems very impractical. I guess that is why they call it fantasy.

What's that sound?

The collective horrified gasp of millions of disappointed fanboys worldwide! I feel a little sorry for them. A comic book may be the closest some of them will ever get to a pair of boobs!

That is just too funny Little Gothic Horrors. I nearly spit my apple cider all over the computer.
