Political correctness has gotten so over-the-top it’s even affecting fictional characters.
Wonder Woman has been ousted as a United Nations ambassador for women’s empowerment after just two months amid protests that she’s too attractive, white and patriotic.
The decision was made after 45,000 people signed a petition demanding the UN remove the fictional character as an ambassador. Wonder Woman’s whiteness, patriotism and voluptuousness disqualify her as a feminist icon, said the petition, which read:
A large-breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit with an American flag motif and knee-high boots is not an appropriate spokeswoman for the gender equality at the United Nations.
The UN did not say why Wonder Woman was removed, but a rep said campaigns using fictional characters typically last a short time, the NY Daily News reported.
Of course, it’s more likely the UN caved into protests from the politically correct crazies.
Wonder Woman, who debuted in 1941 in DC Comics, was one of the world’s first female superheroes. In 1972, Ms. Magazine put her on its cover, hailing her as a feminist icon.
Just hours after Wonder Woman was named an ambassador in October, dozens of UN employees protested at UN headquarters, slamming the selection because “the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse of women and girls is at the top of the United Nations’ agenda.”
Oh really?? Is that why the UN has ignored the mass rapes committed by its own “peacekeepers” and the Muslim rape epidemic roiling Europe?
Is that also why the United Nations selected Saudi Arabia to lead a panel overseeing women’s rights?
