This comic accurately sums up my feelings towards those who complain about The Hawkeye Initiative.
look, I am a huge David Willis fan. He is funny, brilliant, and bang on the mark.
But this? This is the single best and most important comic he has ever done and I am going to keep reblogging it until people stop making the argument in the first panel.
I will never get tired of this
I think I need to print this out and keep it in my pocket.
Hell, if you want to know what women find sexually attractive, hang out on tumblr.
I kinda hate that this is entirely making a problem from one gender’s perspective and totally disregarding how other people feel. And while yes this does make a good point, it makes light of insecurities males can feel.
Because guess what, the guy in this comic is right. The hero is always strong and ‘attractive’ and the stereotype of what a guy should be. So any male reader who doesn’t necessarily identify with that could reasonably feel alienated, just like girls can feel alienated by the fact all main female characters are gorgeous and thin and not at all realistic.
So could we maybe make some more relateable media? I mean, not every person whose done something important was attractive.
