*Flies to Neverland*

Because, as we all know, when women pass puberty all of their organs are removed and they are immediately shrink wrapped.

My first reaction was “yeah but it’s real vs illustrated”, but then I took a second look at the image, and yeah, it’s interesting how the men hardly change at all in comic form.  There’s obvious intent to keep the adult versions reflective of the real life ones.  They don’t get anything exaggerated, while the women get the usual comic book cinched in waist, large rounded breasts, etc additions, plus they’re thinner, even the ones that are the adult versions of the kids (look at Catwoman’s arms o_o).

(On a side note, it’s also annoying that neither Penguin is fat.  Like, they already made Amanda Waller thin in the nu52, and now Penguin here too? :\ )

Vox has just posted a depressing list outlining the reality of violence that women face in the United States every day:

1. Most women experience physical abuse in their lifetime

2. Nearly one-quarter of women experience a physical or sexual assault by an intimate partner

3. Seven in ten assaults against women are perpetrated by an intimate partner

4. One in five women are raped in their lifetime

5. One in thirteen murder victims are killed by their husband or boyfriend

6. One in ten women has a head or spinal cord injury as a result of physical assault

7. But most assault victims don’t receive medical care

8. Eighteen percent of mass shooters have a domestic violence charge

9. Rates of sexual assault are declining

Why are straight white men’s rights activists are so insistent that women don’t need feminism? Why are online reactionaries so upset with “social justice warriors” for pointing these issues out?

Is the above reality the one they expect women to be satisfied with?

I suppose that’s why “the abuser’s lobby” is such an apt name for the men’s rights movement.
