Last year in what should have been an non controversial move, the United Nations announced DC Comics’ character Wonder Woman as ‘Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls’.
In typical modern era fashion, complaints were lodged stating that Wonder Woman was, “a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit” and unsuitable for being named a role model. Bowing to political correctness, the UN apologized for naming the character Honorary Ambassador.
Former TV Wonder Woman Lynda Carter recently spoke with the Telegraph and responded to those critics saying, “Well, excuse me, women have breasts! Superman has got a big pouch in his crotch, so does Spider-Man and Green Lantern and their muscles are bulging — no one has a problem with that.
If they have a problem with a female who is strong, they’re missing the entire point; it’s the ultimate sexism to say because she has big breasts and a costume on, that is what you think represents her and who she is.
Women do have breasts and women can defend themselves and fight back. Wonder Woman is about telling the truth.”
Carter also ponted out the diverse ethnic backgrounds of her and current Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, saying, “I’m half Hispanic and [Gal Gadot] is Israeli,”.
