There has been a lot of mind-numbing Wonder Woman outrage as of late (see Feminist Liberals Attack New ‘Wonder Woman’… For being Jewish and Liberal School Deems Wonder Woman Lunchbox “Violent Imagery”). In case you haven’t noticed, SJWs hate all things to do with attractive women. Their latest ragefest? Wonder Woman partnered with thinkThin health products to promote the movie.
There’s only one problem. Leftists have a feminist-sized issue with it. Why, you ask? The usual reasons…
Marketing has an incredibly unhealthy relationship with female body image. While there have been efforts over the past few years to encourage more body diversity in advertising, there’s still a major stigma over weight and appearance. At least nine out of 10 fashion models nowadays are dangerously underweight, and both women and girls are targeted into insecurity for the sake of promoting clothes, lifestyles, or weight-loss products. It’s gotten to the point where about half of 3 to 6-year-old girls worry about their weight.
Nowadays, superhero films are geared as much to children as they are to adults. It’s why Batman v. Superman was advertised on kids’ cereal boxes, even though it’s a pretty violent film. But, we didn’t get the Dark Knight on a protein powder commercial, nor was Superman out there promoting protein-enriched Greek Yogurt with a store display. So, what kind of message do girls receive when they’re told that Wonder Woman, their superhero icon, wants them to buy products that literally tell them to “think thin”?
This is why you don’t negotiate with terrorists or SJWs. They’re never satisfied. Maybe if they tried a thinkThin bar. I hear they’re rather satisfying. But remember, to say so is FAT SHAMING!
The truth is, these liberal snotboxes can’t complain about the Wonder Woman movie itself because it checks off all the right boxes on their social justice score card and whatnot. So. the next best subject of their whinage? The way the studio promotes their movie. Specifically, the fact that a pretty lady’s face is being used to encourage thinness. Which is clearly unacceptable by leftist standards (see Leftists Accuse Blake Lively of “Racism!” Over… Her Big Butt?). This is simply the latest in the left’s war on attractive women.
While we’re on the subject…
