New Thor is great but I'm just confused over her armor?? Like what the hell is that waistbelt/garter/indented chestplate about.
well i guess youll have to ask the artist abt that?
on another note this reminds me: its funny because few ppl question the ridiculousness/logic of male superhero armor/costume (except maybe namor’s) and yet put a waist-shaping garter on a female superhero and everybody’s up in arms because all of a sudden every bit of accessory/opening needs to have a function because PATRIARCHY. god help the artist if they’re doing it all willy-nilly.
i know weve gotten real sick of highly sexualized female armor/costume and now we’re extremely vigilant/critical of how a female character is dressed, but sometimes designers put additional decorations that are useless yet perfectly harmless based on their personal aesthetics. just like how they treat male armor. it mostly serves to distinguish their design from another, not to insult anyone. honest. as long as the costume stays perfectly relevant and functional to the character, i say let her have her darn garter.
In lion prides, there is only one male lion, and the rest are lionesses. That means in the Lion King, Mufasa would have been Nala’s father as well as Simba’s. Guys, we watched and loved incest as children. Oh my god.
“all girls are catty to each other” myth actualy just statistical error. average girl is nice to other girls. Regina Georg, who goes to high school & insults over 10,000 girls each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
