Fact vs. Fiction

Fiction: A fictional character represented by an absurd statue, that spawned many an overheated blog post.



Fact: A real, live redhead doing actual laundry!

As a woman and a comic fan, I hate how ridiculous her body is sculpted and posed, but also believe the button-pushing is not furthering the women are sequential art fans /comic book fan cause. Let's just use our sense and dollars to buy art and stories that do represent us in a real way - we can be smart and sexy and authentic.

You know, it puts me in mind of a classic Spinal Tap quote...which I'm going to have to blog about tomorrow AM.

(And RAB - can you please give me a preemptive clout?)

You mean you don't do your laundry bent at a 100° angle? I thought everyone did!

Yes, some of the reactions were a bit of an over-reaction, but it is sexist ,degrading, and unrealistic.

If they wanted to make a Mary Jane statue, why not base it on the classic Romita rendition in her first appearance?
