Its not exactly female empowerment when the majority of people who consume the content are males and the character is written and drawn in such a way so as to appeal to them sexually. That's kind of the opposite according to leading purple haired, tatooed feminist university students.

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.



Of course not. She gets tied up sometimes, how can you think she's empowering? Because she always escapes her bonds? Because that stopped appearing in her stories? What, are you crazy?

Comic readers are 46% female, rounded down. Even if gender demographics in an audience determined whether or not something was empowering (which they do not) a less than 5% difference would not matter.

Clearly the ~46% of comicbook readers (http://www.comicsbeat.com/market-research-says-46-female-comic-fans/) can't feel empowered because the majority are male, and a character can never be both sex positive and uplifting at the same time.

Holy fuck so that's why western comics are going down the drain.

Also if you go back and read you would realize I was talking about BEFORE massive pandering to SJWs in comics, not two years ago when it was in its prime.
Try finding the gender of all people who read super hero comics in the mid 90s

Yes, Wonder Woman is clearly pandering massively to SJWs these days.

See?



This is her 7 years ago



And this is her now. You can't even recognise her.

Edit: I dunno why the pictures are on their sides like that. I took them upright and idk how to fix them.

They added man muscles and gave her feminist buzzwords like 'mansplaining', as you can see in my second post in the thread.

Soooo western comics are going down the drain because of female readership?

But here's something for you to celebrate, it was estimated at 43% as of 2015 ( https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/sep/18/female-comic-book-readers-women-avengers-a-force , around when Diana uttering "mansplaining" could have triggered angry fans. Down a whole 3% on an unscientific sweep of facebook!

If you have stats on readership in the 90s I'd love to see it, considering it doesn't look like there's been serious interest in the demographics up until the past decade or so.

You mean the one in which you complain about comics being "hypocritical" because the character is saving shitloads of people through "acts of violence" that do not result in any casualties at all while promoting peace? (That was your third post here btw, not your second) Yeah, surprisingly I don't feel very inclined to take that little rant all that seriously.

.

More the pandering for female readership who then abandon the publisher because comics aren't 'in' anymore.

So you ignore how they turned WW into a feminist shehulk?

And yeah, you can't call yourself 'peaceful' and use violence at the same time.
