Just saw a post where someone said an Avengers movie poster was a sign of the patriarchy.
Here’s the heinous poster in question.
They had this to say about the above poster:
Well here we have the standard Avengers movie poster. Everyone in their heroic pose, but something is a little different for Black Widow. It seems, somehow (*gasp*) that some of her superpowers must come from displaying a well defined tuckus to the gaze of the viewer.
Is anyone else showing off their super-tuckus? Evidently not.
God damn it! I knew it!
The patriarchy has moved in and while Black Widow is forced to show off her bottom, the rest are showing off their insanely muscular chests and abs. You’d never suspect that in a movie about literal superheroes.
However, a quick google search is all that is needed to show how disingenuous this argument is.
Oh god damn it, Hulk! You are now part of the matriarchy you bastard.
You are such an asshole, Iron Man. Taking all that privilege to show off your ass. Look at Hulk in the background, still trying to show off his sweet green ass but Iron Man wants to block it with his fat head and steal all that limelight.
And Black Widow, how dare you face the camera head-on.
Hulk, you’re a complete jackass. Hogging all that ass-time.
You won’t like me when I go all patriarchy on your…sweet…sweet…green….*drool*
On a serious note, this is why you can’t be taken seriously. What you’re talking about here is nonsense that skeptical, thinking people shouldn’t fall for…ever.
It took me a total of one minute to show how nonsensical your original point was. I originally did a google image search to see if you had made a valid point, but looks like you were just seeing what you wanted to see.
I’m at least happy to know that you don’t think I’m stupid. I know the level of research you put into your post certainly shows an insight and educational prowess that I couldn’t hope to achieve.
I’ll be able to sleep soundly tonight.
