LisaNeedsBraces: Spider-girl costumes don't.
Rembrant_Q_Einstein: My daughter always wants to be a zombie or some ghoul.
unfarkingbelievable: magicgoo: My two daughters are never girled-up versions of heroes.[i743.photobucket.com image 576x1024]Super cute. Your little spidey is a bit of a ham, looks like. I bet she's always entertaining!
WillofJ2: TheMysticS: Ima_Lurker: TheMysticS: shabu: TheMysticS: fireclown: meh. The coded messages from the patriarchy can always be worse.As a fairly busty lady, I'd like to say wtf? Nobody's boobs look like that. If she had no cleavage showing, you'd think they're props.Doc took her literally when she said she wanted nice melons. They're like the size and shape of a honeydew.I guess you go girl. More power to ya. When you get too old to possibly have beachballboobies, have them cut off all the extra skin when you size down. Otherwise it looks like your chest is melting.Seriously, menfolk- do you consider that attractive enough for everyday use? Or is it just a one-off, so to speak?I would never be so shallow as to limit my search for a life partner only to women with gigantic breasts. However, should my life partner happen to have gigantic breasts, then I'm gonna play it as it lies with a smile.Well, fair enough.Thank you also.I would be happy to do a compare and contrast with yours but I didn't see a pic in your profile.Seriously I agree with shabu - I'm just so happy to be invited over to play that I'm not going to complain about the toys being too big or too small.Cool. No pics, yah. I'll go to a fark party some day but I really try to keep me and my family's pics off the web. Paranoid I guess.My evil stepmother ruined that by posting and tagging. Bonus- 25+years employed by NSA. You'd think she'd know better.But at least it's contained to Facebook.But for contrast and compare, I'm D.Way to make me feel insignificant I am like a 50 AAA (bra sizes are like battery sizes right?)
johneee: It's true, and the thing that always confuses me in debates like this is to what extent marketing products like this are simply a reflection of consumer preferences, and how much is an actual force that changes or pushes those preferences one way or another.I suppose I should mention right now that I see the genderification (specific products for one gender or another rather than having gender-neutral things) of everything for kids to be problematic in and of itself. I further think that the specific gender roles assigned to boys and girls are also limiting on both side.If we could just say that the only reason they're on the shelves is that people buy them, and so therefore it's just reacting to attitudes that are already there, well, I guess there's no problem that they reflect an incredibly reductive view of the position of women in society.
WillofJ2: [lh4.googleusercontent.com image 500x500]the boots just ruined it
2CountyFairs: My daughter is five, and even she knows that the pink superhero outfits aren't right and she refuses to wear them, and has done so since she was three.
rocky_howard: One would think if girls want to dress like Spider-Girl they'd get a Spider-Girl costume, not this abortion.Also, why am I not surprised that this came from Tumblr? LOL Talk about stereotypes.
Darth_Lukecash: Sybarite: Wouldn't an "accurate" Spider-Girl costume be a spandex unitard with boobs?There is an actual difference between Spider-Man an Spider-Girls costume.
