But did she go full Brazilian?
 
2017-03-18 03:44:24 PM  
I was disturbed that she didn't get the spray tan everywhere.

I've traveled between the states, South America, and Europe over my life, and have been a bit of a comic nerd for almost as long, and I don't remember ever seeing her with hairy 'pits in the comics, but I'm really surprised that they're taking offense to this more than Gal's obvious lack of the same attributes as the comic version...

Then again, we all know that Stan Lee likes 'em stacked...
 
2017-03-18 04:04:33 PM  
All that matters to me is seeing her mother Martha get shot by that radioactive spider during a lightning storm in the gamma radiation crime lab's alley.
 
2017-03-18 04:05:03 PM  
Oh, FFS!

Queen Hippolyta created her daughter out of clay.

And even if Diana did shave her armpits, shaving bodily hair goes back at least as far as ancient Egypt. It's not a modern concept.

Don't recall seeing any armpit hair with Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman either

Okay, I'm not a big fan of comic geeks anymore, but I'm going to defend them in this because this isn't comic geeks in an uproar, it's assholes with an agenda who have never read a comic book and want something to biatch and OUTRAGE about for clicks finding something totally stupid to complain about so they get clicks.
 
2017-03-18 04:27:48 PM  
What's more stupid: complaining about Wonder Woman's pit hair or complaining about complaining about Wonder Woman's pit hair?

/you all suck is what I'm saying
 
2017-03-18 04:49:25 PM  
Do women shave their armpits so that men will find them more attractive? I always assumed it was because they didn't want hairy pits, though I haven't put much thought into it either way.

FTFA: "The latest trailer for Wonder Woman was just released last Saturday, but now some fans have noticed that Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is missing armpit hair, and this is causing a controversy online."

Oh please.  I'm sure tens of people actually give a shiat about this.
 
2017-03-18 05:31:33 PM  
Geez, I wonder where they got this idea that Diana shaves her pits?

Pretty much. This is feminists who want to latch onto a movie to promote their own work, and now they're stymied by the fact that Wonder Woman is the product of a fairly kinky artist, who REALLY liked bondage. And the earliest Wonder Woman comics were ALL about the bondage, down to Diana losing her powers if tied up by a man. Yup. Nothing to see there, kids.

The thing is, the character has a long history, and she grew past those roots. And the odd thing is that, few feminists like to even acknowledge the roots of the character. She's grown from them, past them, and yet is still influenced by them. And that is because they aren't looking at the character in context with the comics of the time, they aren't looking at the character in the context of its later iterations, because by and large, the folks kvetching about this, aren't versed in the comics, and only are aware of the character because Lynda Carter's ass was SO damn good, she made the granny-panties that they saddled her with look good. And they remember the show, and again, through somewhat rose colored glasses, because these aren't folks who have any real care for the film, or the character, or the mediums, but are hoping to make a quick buck or three with a few articles, and then they can cluck their tongues.

Maybe her pit hair is invisible, like her plane.

She is Amazonian, and that ain't a river in Egypt...

"Critics of Wonder Woman's lack of armpit hair say that it would only make sense for an Amazonian to have lots of body hair, including armpit hair."

If you clipper your pit hair short it will reduce bacterial odor (sweat does not smell initially) by more than 95% male or female.

I think the question is "Who cares whether they have hairy pits and why?" I don't think it was a big deal until the advertising boys got hold of it.  ("Got underarm hair?  Don't look so 'ethnic' at your next function....")
 Because it's obvious she bleaches her mustache.

This seems like the sort of thing that wouldn't have been a thing until some bleached asshole MADE it a thing. I mean, why doesn't she have the physique of her fat friend from the comics

Since she's an Amazon, shouldn't she have lopped off one tit so it didn't interfere with her archery?

I know a lot of feminists that are into bondage.

Closeted as Hell.

But into it.

Still, it's just a movie/ comic book.

It's not like it's real and lasting literature.

Hey, she wants to look sexy. Just ask the other superheroes. Case in point:

One day Superman was flying around at random, and spotted Wonder Woman in her backyard sunbathing nude on a deck chair. She appeared to be taking a nap and having an erotic dream, laying still with her eyes closed, squirming around and quietly moaning every now and then. Superman was getting all hot and bothered, and thought he might just have a little fun, so he figured he could swoop down there and give her a quickie. He was Superman, after all, so he could do this so fast she wouldn't even notice. He had his way with her, and was gone in an instant. All of a sudden, Wonder Woman opened her eyes, and asked, "Why'd you stop?" "I don't know," replied the Invisible Man, "but all of a sudden, my ass hurts like hell."

It's possibly apocryphal, but the story that I've read in a few different places is that the fashion for women shaving under their arms started in the modern West with Mack Sennett's Bathing Beauties in the silent era.

The Mack Sennett Bathing Beauties ~1917~WWI Pinups~
Youtube Y0w_zMvpE44


As the story goes, when Sennett first assembled them he said that their armpit hair 'looks like Hell. Have them shave.'
