Recently I was geeking out over The Avengers movie (OMG, SO FREAKING GOOD I AM IN LOVE WITH THE HULK THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE. Ahem.) and I stumbled across the movie poster online.
And I started ranting and raving (like I do) about how the only chick in the movie has to be seen butt first on the poster. If you believe the lies that movie posters tell us, you’d think all girls walked into rooms butt first, and stood butt first into crowds, speaking provocatively over our shoulder. So abnormal and creeptastic. I started thinking, am I the only one who feels these things? Am I the only one who is tired of seeing the single token female being reduced to the over the shoulder smoldering glance while our ass greets the masses like our own personal social resume? Urk.
Thank you interwebs for not making me feel alone with my craziness! As it turns out, this is a thing, being offended by the butt first posturing of lady heroes.
Oh interwebs. You are my tribe.
