Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail. Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes. Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!
That is a good point. I mean I’m still iffy because WW is supposed to be an Amazon, which warriors are known to have a certain built, but I could be wrong. Also, there’s nothing wrong with her size in my opinion but when it comes to media this type of frame is always preferred. Yes, woman can look big and muscular or small and petite and still kick ass regardless but almost every female superhero depicted in media has this same type of frame. Is it wrong to want WW to be the first to break that mold of just not being there to catered to the male gaze?
'Holler If Ya Hear Me' closed after only one month and 55 performances. The musical's lead thinks he knows why
"The idea of having a play that centers around, How do you stop the cycles of gun violence in our community? It’s weird to hear someone feel like the story is generic when it’s the front page of every fucking paper to date. And when you look at the reviews and compare them to everything from Do the Right Thing to Menace II Society, it’s always the same fucking review. There’s actually a generic response when I don’t think critics realize they’re playing into the hands of something that runs deeper than how this made you feel. I am speaking to that American race psyche; that thing that Harry Belafonte said to me after he saw the play, which is, ‘You took an afrocentric-themed play and placed it on a eurocentric stage. The problems you’ll face are larger than you think.’ ”
