So Jezebel has this headline: “DC Comics Contest: Draw a Naked Woman Committing Suicide.” Ends up, it’s a drawing contest to draw Harley Quinn about to commit suicide, and one of those methods is here in a bathtub about to drop plugged in appliances to it. So, for that she’d be naked, because that’s how people bathe. Or is it sexist to think women bathe naked? I don’t really understand feminism.
Anyway, I can see how the whole thing is objectionable, but if you’re going to get all feminist about comic books, do you really want to rally around Harley Quinn — a girl slavishly devoted to a mass murderer? I mean, the place to start — as it has been for years — is the outfits the superheroines wear. I can only assume none of the female superheroes have fathers, because they would absolutely horrified at their daughters running around saving the world while dressed like strippers.
