Sick of the objectification of Women in Comics? So is Hawkeye.

How To Fix Female Comic Characters: Turn Them All Into Hawkeye.

The above article led me to what has instantly resurrected my affection for Tumblr. I haven’t used the account in over 8 months but I couldn’t get enough of the hilarious images at The Hawkeye Initiative.

I am constantly frustrated by the ridiculous objectification of women in comics. Wonder Woman is an icon for heaven’s sake! How dare someone take one of the most enduring icons of the feminist movement in American culture and relegate her to nothing more than a Superman booty call in star-spangled panties!

I love the satirical approach the contributors at the Hawkeye Initiative have taken in addressing this tiresome trend of over-sexualization in comics. well done!
