Bosch,

A lady like Wonder Woman is something out of the Jihadists' worst nightmares. The fact that she's being used to promote Islam of all things, is really ironic.

Personally through, I have to say this, I've seen Wonder Woman's new costume and it still doesn't look that "Islamically correct" as you put it. She maybe more covered in her new costume, but its clearly not a burka. Also, she still looks pretty hot, and I can imagine her scandalizing much, if not all the Islamic World in that.

Now this will make you mad, did you hear about this one children's television network called the HUB, planning to air a cartoon series based on the Ninety Nine? Its not in the middle East, or some other Islamic State, its here in America.

Here's my part about Wonder Woman's costume:

"Some of you may know that Wonder Woman recently had a costume change; her new costume just happens to be more Islamically correct than that in which we’re used to seeing her. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if her costume was tweaked in order to avoid The 99 from being scandalized in the Muslim world by their appearing with Wonder Woman in her usual costume, especially since some of the 99 female members are dressed in full-on burkas."

Wonder Woman's new costume happens to be *more* Islamically correct than her old one, Damien, that was my point, and I believe, the point of the costume change, this close to The 99 teaming up with the Justice League of America. And who said her new costume was a burka? As you can read above, *compared* to her old costume, her new one is most definitely *more* Islamically correct. I think the main point of her new costume was to cover her up, making her seem more modest than she usually is. They weren't ready to throw an outright burka over her since they still need to pretend that the change has nothing to do with the team up.

Bosch,

That makes sense, although it still doesn't prove that, that was the reason. But it is possible.

Bosch Fawstin said...

No, it doesn't prove it, but I'd bet it was.

Bosch,

Speaking of Strong Women, I don't know if you've heard of her, but Citizen Warrior, talk about her in his blog. Her name is Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff and she's being tried for "hate speech" agianst Islam, much like Geert Wilders, only she is not as well known.

Here's something he wrote about her.

As a quick side note, there are those who say men are objectified in Islamic Comic Books too, but I argue that the objectification of men is not as severe as the objectification of women. Muscular male superheroes may portray the “ideal body image” for males and females, but it’s more centralized on showing their strength and powers, whereas with women, the thin-figure, enlarged body parts, and the swimsuit poses have more to do with sex than with demonstrating their strength or powers.
