The female Avengers
 
Ladies - are you bored of the hyper-sexualized contortionist poses of women in Movie Posters, Comic Books and well, just about everywhere?

Think it's time for some fair play? Or at least to just make it obvious to men exactly what the issue is? An artist Kevin Bolk thought so. So he lampooned the new Avengers film - and quite well, I'd say.

Here is the "turn about is fair play" aspect. Do you see now, guys, how ridiculous it is? Look at those strong male characters! (sarcasm)

Also, before you go off half-cocked (lol) and breathing fire... other people have already covered all those bases of "men are objectified too!" LOL Mmmkay.

So go read those articles and rant to your hearts content over there.

I am really sort of anticipating some hilarious comments from the people who didn't read any of this. I wonder what will happen.
