I remember watching Lynda Carter when I was growing up, and I loved her so much. Her character Wonder Woman was something I looked forward to watching weekly. I learned the United Nations had made October 21 “Wonder Woman Day,” and I thought that was something that was unique and well deserved.
Now it seems the old fogies of this ignorant body are complaining about the woman’s breasts. That’s not something everyone was worried about when the day was created so why now? Wonder Woman has been a superhero for decades in the comic books and on television.
This response by the UN reached Carter, and she didn’t hold back during her UK interview on the subject. Hopefully, members of the UN were listening and had decided to change their minds.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the DC Amazon, last year the United Nations declared October 21 officially Wonder Woman Day and appointed the princess as the Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls. Carter attended the ceremony.
Then, like an attack from the monster Doomsday, the PC police struck. Over 40,000 people signed a petition, which was presented to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, protesting Carter’s appointment. Protestors wrote that Wonder Woman’s “current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit” is, as the college socialists say, problematic.
In the Telegraph interview, Carter responded to the controversy:
“Well, excuse me, women have breasts! Superman has got a big pouch in his crotch, so does Spider-Man and Green Lantern and their muscles are bulging — no one has a problem with that. If they have a problem with a female who is strong, they’re missing the entire point; it’s the ultimate sexism to say because she has big breasts and a costume on, that is what you think represents her and who she is. Women do have breasts and women can defend themselves and fight back. Wonder Woman is about telling the truth.“
This is what happens when so-called self-righteous experts are placed in charge and think what they are doing for the betterment of everyone else is short sided and ignorant. Leave Wonder Woman alone and work on other pressing issues like world peace, or fixing Haiti after Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation screwed it up.
Do you think the UN should be worrying about Wonder Woman’s appearance? Did you like how Carter responded to those stuffy shirts? Share your voices below in the comment section.
