I see your point. However, you might want to either snip or spoiler the large quote from Torrasque. It's common courtesy, as it clutters up the thread and makes the page take longer to load for our friends with bad internet connections.Grey Day for Elcia said:It's because men are usually portrayed strong and dependent. The female super heroes who wear these similar and revealing outfits, however, usually possess less of said qualities and are more overtly sexualized.Faux Furry said:Yes. No. Maybe? There's something to be said for arguments which 'Prove too much'.Torrasque said:Anything involving the treatment of men vs. women.
Do I win the thread?
Just to avoid a double standard of only treating issues in which women get the shaft are worth calling out, I won't reprise my entries in a similar thread(though I will link to it [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.285506-Favorite-double-standards#11260066]) though they are interconnected(suffice it to say, it is related to the whole thing with varying comfort levels with differently gendered body types).
point to a slight variant on it since it gets bought up on this site so often. Why is it considered okay when the classic super heroes wore more clothing than even their direct female counterparts:
but when the opposite is true,it is seen as 'proof' that female super heroes aren't 'allowed' to wear as much as the males,even when every other female member of the team wears more than the one example wearing less than some of the males on the team?:
Then,there is also this mess [http://youtu.be/4JA4EPRbWhQ].
My opinion, anywho.
