when guardians of the galaxy comes out people here will ship a plant and a raccoon but still be mad about the bee and the human
This is the same man.
This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!”, imo. On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this. On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.
Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.
male power fantasies are still problematic. A boy might see the picture on the left and think that that is a realistic appearance for a man. He won’t understand that Hugh Jackman doesn’t always look like that, and he will develop a bad self-image
