Wonder Woman’s Armpit Hair

Wonder Woman's Armpit Hair - by C-Section Comics

In Saudi Arabia, women aren’t allowed to drive, and cannot leave home without a male guardian. In Iran, gender segregation appears in workplaces and public events, and only 6% of parliament members are female. But third wave feminists in the States have bigger fish to fry – namely Wonder Woman’s armpit hair.

Or lack thereof.

Yes, this is a real thing. Following the release of the latest Wonder Woman movie trailer, a voice of outrage have risen on Twitter. The SJWs are outraged by the clean-shaven armpits of the Amazon princess, played by actress Gal Gadot.

Here’s one such tweet:

Of course, there are also saner voices out there

What’s my take on this?
1) The fact that Wonder Woman’s armpit hair is missing is indeed totally unrealistic.
2) But so is the fact that she’s an Amazon Princess from the Paradise Island who rides an invisible plane and wields the magical lasso of truth.

Here are some additional Wonder Woman cartoons, like the one where Wonder Woman marries Superman, or the one about the Evolution of Wonder Woman.

Supergirl vs. Superman – on Gender Pay Gap

Supergirl vs Superman - Cartoon by Idan Schneider

Supergirl vs. Superman – had they been paid, should they really earn exactly the same?

The rather disputed, yet widely quoted, statistic says that women earn 78 cents on the dollar compared to men.
Why is this number problematic? First, it relies on a rather simple calculation from the U.S. Census Bureau: the difference between women’s annual median earnings and men’s annual median earnings. (That difference is 22 cents, hence the 78 cents on the dollar statistic).
Second, it measures annual wages. The gap gets smaller when you look at weekly wages (18 cents) or hourly wages (13 cents).
Third, it doesn’t take into consideration other aspects that may affect you salary. For example, some men might be more assertive compared to women when it comes to annual salary negotiations. Some women might prefer professions that pay less (like teaching). Some women, especially younger moms, prefer to work less hours so they could spend more time with their kids.
So while there is little dispute about the actual numbers, there is a lot of room for interpretation, and whether they imply that intended gender pay gap indeed exists.

Now that we compared Supergirl vs. Superman, how about reading about some other superheroes? Here’s one about Superman marrying Wonder Woman. And here’s the bizarre story of Reverse Psychology Man.

10 Real Life Stories, Told Using Facebook Reactions

Real Life Stories Told Using Facebook Reactions

When you think of it, Facebook reactions really represent the process of going through an emotional roller coaster – liking, loving, ecstasy, happiness, sadness, anger. And it’s really the process of any good story.

It looks like Facebook reactions have always been there, but they’re fairly new. Facebook added them only in February 2016, exactly 12 years after the birth of the social network, and exactly 7 years after the launch of the famous Like button.The main goal behind Facebook reactions was to enable feature to express a more extensive range of emotions to posts, since not every post is “likeable”. Up until then it was like:
– My grandma died
– Oh, sorry to hear that. ‘Like’

Other social networks and microblogging platforms like Twitter and Tumblr haven’t followed Facebook yet, and they maintain a single reaction model (heart shaped “like”). The same goes for Google Plus, with their +1 button, which, psychologically, can be seen as a more neutral reaction than “like” or “love”.

Feeling emotional? You can experience a full range of emotions by browsing through our comics archives – you’ll like some, you’ll love others. Some will make you pee with laughter, others will make you angry. Some will be so emotional they’ll make you cry, and some will have such low humor you’ll go “Wow what did I just read?”

You Can’t Hide Anymore

Technology – making it easier for moms to nag you since like 5 years ago.
Also makes it easier for bosses, exes, and stalkers.

This is my last cartoon for 2012. Hope you enjoyed this year of C-Section Comics, here’s to a better 2013!
