Wonder Woman isn't the first cartoon character to shoulder international responsibility. Winnie the Pooh served as an honorary ambassador for the International Day of Friendship under former Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Earlier this year, outgoing Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed one of the characters from the Angry Birds mobile game as an honorary ambassador for the International Day of Happiness.

If comic book and video game characters can be UN ambassadors, could we some day see an anime character named as one?

From bondage fetish comic to feminist hero

Wow.
'Gender equality'
This is the same UN that elected Saudi Arabia as chair of their Human Rights commission or whatever its called.

She more or less Superman lite, with her kryptonite being her own lasso.

Makes sense. I mean, if you're going to name a fictional character a UN ambassador you might as well make it a character who actually is an ambassador.

Also I just really fucking like wonder woman

I don't think any of them actually die (from that) but yes.

Well that just highlights the hypocrisy of modern western comics that try to pander to leftists. Scream 'but I am the peaceful one' while committing acts of violence and injecting some warped sjw view of politics into every single panel.



I mean how do we go from this



to THIS



And pretend like the former never existed?

Yeah I've moved on.
Do you not see the irony in taking a (male) pervert's bondage fetish character and turning it into some 'feminist' character that empowers women?

UN making that an 'ambassador for gender equality' is almost as hilarious as the Saudi Arabia as human rights chair thing.

Moving back on... to the same line repeated ad nauseum. She has always been a figure of female empowerment.



The bits of bondage that her original creator worked in haven't been a focus of her character for a very long time.

I wouldn't say that. She was more just cheesecake until the recent SJWization of western comics

Clearly a woman kicking ass isn't a figure of female empowerment.
