Wonder Woman was recently named the United Nations’ honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls. But don’t tell anyone from any of the Islamic countries about her comic book reboot. It might not go over all that well.
The D.C. superheroine is celebrating her 75th anniversary, and the iconic image of Wonder Woman will soon be used in a campaign promoting women’s rights and gender equality.
Proponents see her as a strong, empowering female character and Entertainment Weekly just named her the number one superhero of all time, but not everybody at the UN will be happy.
Feminist critics object to her “visual image” as a “sex object” what with the bikini, cleavage, high boots and all.
Not to mention her patriotism, with the U.S. flag on her back.
It’s hard to know who Wonder Woman insults the most:
Those who are anti-American or those who believe the beauty of a woman should be hidden behind a burqa or niqab?
Speaking of Islam, what will they think of Wonder Woman’s newfound sexual preference?
If delegates from Islamic countries at the UN hear about Wonder Woman’s sexuality flip-flop, won’t there be hell to pay now that she’s part of an official UN campaign?
