MY FAVORITE POST
PLEASE TELL ME THAT PEOPLE IN BRITAIN ACTUALLY CALL THE USA “THE COLONIES”
This reminds me of when I moved to America, it took me months to adapt. And I sometimes called it the Colonies, mostly to get back at American friends who made regular tea and Mary Poppins jokes.
Realize the true power of women!
—Wonder Woman #23 (1947) by H.G. Peter
This might be one of the weirdest Ads I have come across online.
1) Men are feeling like men by badly cosplaying Dark Souls characters?
2) “Reverse Mortgage” sounds like an odd sex position and from her facial experession I feel the woman just found it is not for her.
I know I am bias but I really want to write why I love this scene
1. It is taking the idea of Wonder Woman being the defender of femininity the idea that Wonder Woman was based around since the Sensation Comics days to its logical modern conclusion. She defends all femininity regardless of the sex of the person acting on it. Marston regularly said how boys were becoming brutish due to the lack of strong women in the world and this continues that by showing that the feminine is not restricted to one sex.
2. It continues ones of my favorite trends from the Golden Age, Wonder Woman as the rabble rouser. When you go back through you realize how much of the old comics was Wonder Woman teaching woman to stand up and fight for themselves going as far to tell a load of them to “Get strong and earn your own living”. Her job wasn’t to just to be someone who flew around punching things, it was to motivate and encourage those around her to fight the injustice they saw. This is very similar, the male is very obviously feeling weak due to this secret and her she is empowering him to continue this with pride as opposed to it being a dirty secret. Continuing the trend of Wonder Woman helping and encouraging others to become better people and stronger in themselves.

At first I thought they were going to make fun of him and I was about to get angry but then Wonder Woman was like “yeah, my outfit is pretty awesome”.
