Ms. Magazine: When Will Wonder Woman Be a ‘Fat Femme Woman of Color’?

A blog post from Ms. Magazine criticizes the new Wonder Woman film because the title character is not a fat, femme, woman of color.

Ms. Magazine, which was founded by feminist activists Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes in 1971, published an online blog post by author Stephanie Abraham this week, lamenting the new Wonder Woman movie on the grounds that the title character is an attractive, white woman, much like the character in the popular comic books that inspired the film.

    Here’s a prime candidate who fulfills the politically correct criteria to star in “Wonder Woman – Part 2”:

      Normally adults should be smart enough to tell children not to stand on furniture such as tables for this very reason. This individual is not enough smart enough to realize it herself.

    • Clink9

      Hilarious. Scarlet has lots of built in padding.

  • Michael Clement

    When? When such a movie will draw enough of an audience to recoup the multi-million dollar cost to make it. That’s when. So, never!

    • Abu Nudnik

      They make you buy insurance, don’t they? That’s their dream. You watch the movie or it’s a… what’s the word? Oh… a TAX!

      Nah. She has too much white privilege.

    By the law of unintended consequence …. free publicity by the bucket full.

    Probably around the time that magazines like Ms and Cosmo start to put fat ugly chicks on their covers, maybe?

  • Luna Tik

    Stephanie Abraham is transphobic for not recommending Caitlyn Jenner to be the next Wonder Woman!

        That and that their food is “halal” are two reasons never to go into a Popeye’s Chicken.

  • Starlord

    White is hot. So fuck off haters. Fat femme of colour…. Sure but who will pay to see that? Or fund it.

  • CodexCoder

    When fat femme can demonstrate a high degree of physical fitness and capability.

  • Hard Little Machine

    If they want no one to buy a ticket

    When? When Ms. and feminist organizations seriously campaign for women’s rights in Muslim countries.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Umm never. It won’t sell.
    Look, Hollyweird is in the business of selling fantasy. If you want your Wonder Woman to be obese and a woman of color, you are free to try to market it and reap the reward (little to none).

  • Abu Nudnik

    Why isn’t she an obese effeminate gay man? Oh, the humanity!
