One of my favorite things about Wonder Woman, truly, is that she isn’t some isolated solo bad ass.
There is no brooding, Bat Man like “loner” streak in her. She has no Supermany “Fortress of Solitude.” No, while Diana may sometimes be separated from her fellow Amazons, she never shuns them in self inflicted monkery.
Rather, spectacularly, Diana revels in her sisterhoods. Whether with her fellow Amazons, or with other heroes, or with her human friends, like Candy. Wonder Woman’s enduring sense of Camaraderie, of fellowship, of solidarity and sisterhood is truly noble, and it’s one of my favorite things about her.
She’s not concerned with being better than other women. She is not jealous of other women’s successes and strengths. She has no deep broody desire to prove herself worthy. She is filled to the brim with self confidence and EAGER to embrace other women as her sisters.
Self Confidant, dedicated to justice, and embracing sisterhood with all other women: All feminists should aspire to be as wondrous as Wonder Woman.
I’d like to add that because of this in many ways Wonder Woman is the best warrior of the Trinity. At the end of the day, Diana can rally an army, something Supes and Bats can’t do. Diana knows how to lead, how to fight, and if necessary, she’s fully willing to kill. This makes Diana such a necessary member of the trinity. Sometimes justice means a crime fighter, or a symbol of hope, but sometimes it means someone willing to go to war, real, dirty, messy, difficult war, and Diana brings that to the table every damn time.
How’s that quote go? “When you need to stop an asteroid, you get Superman. When you need to solve a mystery, you call in Batman. But when you need to end a war, you get Wonder Woman.”
just saw a post accusing Obama of working for the government
people be like “are you really going to miss out on a potential friendship just because someone doesnt share your views on feminism/racism/etc.” and i’m like “ya lol”
I try not to dwell on the racism still in the world but then I read about the shit that happens to my people and like????? People kill us for no reason???? And get away with it???? I was unaware the law said murder is illegal unless the victim is black
why THE FUCK is no one talking about this
why isnt this on the news
we all know the reason why. stop the bullshit.
And this shit happened on May 18…MAY 8-FUCKING-TEENTH!
I read the article and this honestly makes me so fucking angry. I encourage all my followers to reblog the shit out of this. Share it on your Facebook and Twitter, too.
Please spare some time for Darren Rainey. This is a horrific brutality against a human being that is being swept under the rug by most media.
