As a fellow feminist and geek, what do you think of the controversy behind the new Wonder Woman costume and giving her heels?
Welcome to Miss Tamary's Tumblr! Answer:
I honestly wasn’t aware of the controversy.
Personally, I like the new costume. She looks like this bad ass Gladiator babe, or at least in the picture I saw. The armor is menacing, despite the fact that the breast plates are stupid since they do zilch to protect you in battle. As for the heels, I see nothing wrong with it. For one, she’s an Amazon, she’s a super being, so perhaps her capabilities to fight with heels are immensely greater than say, Black Widow, who it makes no sense to have fight in booty knee-highs since she’s just a human being. And I believe that women are perfectly capable of being strong, fierce, and intimidating, all while being conventionally sexy. Shit, she could even use her heels as a dagger. Kick some goon in the chest and stab him! If girls are griping over how heels are uncomfortable and could limit her, I think that varies from girl-to-girl. I pretty much live my life in heels and I do just fine, they’re only uncomfortable when breaking them in, after that I feel pretty Wonderful, myself.
