Default Outrage over Wonder Woman's shaved armpits



When we look back at the great social justice struggles of 2017, surely, neigh certainly, the cause of putting armpit hair on fictional women will top the list.

This week, Warner Bros. released the new trailer for Wonder Woman, and most problematically, the Amazonian warrior princess played by Gal Gadot did not have any armpit hair.

Twitter exploded at the revelation, claiming women of the fictional matriarchy Themyscira would probably not shave their armpits. Some speculated that Gadot’s armpits were photoshopped to show a sheen, immaculate visage, unattainable by real women.

Many woke, intersectional journalists were also angered by the lack of gross armpit hair.

“Is this seriously still happening in 2017,” cried Slate.

“Do better!” crowed the Revelist.

Refinery29 even opined for a day when Wonder Woman could “prove that women—even those who are superheroes—don’t have to cater to beauty standards that are meant to make them more attractive to men.”

Wonder Woman has never had armpit hair in the comics or on screen. The new film is also set during World War 1, around the same time women began shaving their pits.

Gadot herself has yet to address the growing #Armpitgate scandal, instead choosing to tweet about non-armpit related issues. Do better, Gal!

The fact that hair/no hair is even an issue makes me fear for the human race. It's not like there aren't other issues in the world to deal with.

Because nothing says equal rights or freedom over your own body like being told you can't shave your armpits, even if you want to. Yet more hypocrisy from the moonbats.

Much of what passes for feminism is not really about men .
Instead it is about some women attempting to control and
oppress other women .

It also seems to me that more often than not it amounts to
oppression of attractive females by the less attractive .

I agree! There is nothing remotely comfortable or desired by me in hairy armpits. (I may let the legs go on occasion but the arm pits..never!)
