DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

Not really a question but more of a thought; Today I was at McDonalds and there was a mother with her 2 children, her daughter and her son. They both saw the Young Justice toys and both were sad that there weren't any female characters offered. I heard the boy say where was Wonder Woman and the girl ask where Zatanna was. It amazes me that there are still gender bias toys especially when kids will play with whatever they get. Smh -_-

And I saw a little boy who wanted the Littlest Pet Shop toy! Beyond the lack of female superheroes I really hate how you are asked “boy or girl toy” when you order. I wish McDonalds would train people to say what the toy is instead assigning it a gender.

  3. rachelevation76 said: Great answer to a great question. Could you make it rebloggable?
  4. truxillogical said: A friend’s daughter almost didn’t get a Star Wars toy b/c the McD’s people said it was a “boys toy.” She didn’t want to call herself a boy, and they wouldn’t give her father SW unless he ordered a “boy’s happy meal.”
