Social Justice League: Feminists complaining about ‘sexy’ Amazons miss point about feminine power

Powered by Topple

Feminists are having a meltdown over the Amazonian warrior costumes being used in a new superhero action film and regular people have had enough of their complaining.

Amazon costumes portrayed in “Wonder Woman” earlier this year were apparently less sexualized than the ones set to debut in the new “Justice League” movie which premieres this week, according to a photo comparison posted on Twitter.

The comparison photos sparked a firestorm on Twitter as fans expressed their outrage that the “Justice League” costumes which were designed by a man, and used in a film directed by a man, were more overtly sexual than those used in “Wonder Woman.” Not surprisingly, they noted that the less revealing “Wonder Woman” costumes designed by a woman were featured in the highly successful Warner Bros. movie which was directed by a female, Patty Jenkins.

“Why mess with perfection?” was the question asked in a piece in The Golden Lasso, arguing that Hemming’s designs were “feminine but very functional.”

“Oh, right. The all-male team of directors and executive directors wanted women to fight in bikinis,” the writer concluded, adding that the costumes were created “so that more skin would be showing.”

“Zack Snyder’s ideal female warrior wearing about the same as a Victoria’s Secret model on the runway is not a new concept, it’s just disappointing and insulting in 2017,” the feminist writer, identified as Kimi, wrote. “I have a problem with a really great design being thrown out in favor of something that would excite the cis male gaze.”

The costume differences sparked a controversy online as liberals and feminists raised their hypocritical alarm over the exposed actresses.

Another fan shared side-by-side photos of Brooke Ence, who plays the Amazon warrior Penthesilea in both films.

Ence, however, told USA Today that showing more skin “didn’t bother me at all.”

“The girls on set, we never thought of (the new costumes) as a sexy version. It felt a little more glamorous, if anything, because we had bigger, beautiful hair, which I loved,”  the CrossFit champion said.

Ence’s stance once again exposed the double standard feminists use to attack anyone who disagrees with their confusing narrative. While protesting, left-wing women were encouraged to demonstrate in women’s marches this year wearing female body-part hats on their heads, with some choosing to go topless for the cause, the same women blast others for choosing how they dress or expose their skin.

“I’m an athlete first, right? I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my body,” Ence told USA Today. “So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.”

Imagine a woman feeling good about how she was able to show off her body. Feminists continue to miss the very obvious point that Ence made, and many other women agree with. In fact, the actress even flipped the critics’ narrative that Amazons needed armor to protect their stomachs.

“That may be the case, but also we are super-powerful women and maybe no one’s getting that close. Maybe no one has a chance to get that close to hurt us,” she said.

Other fans agreed and also called out the complainers for the predictable rush to judgement.

A “Justice League” actress and stuntwoman came to the defense of director Zack Snyder and his choice of wardrobe for the women.

“I think that the Amazons (being a race that lives with only other women) should be free to wear as much or as little clothing as each individual wants. And this was reflected in the variations of the armor that was tailored to each individual. I think that the sexualization happens largely in the intent of the creators. In this case. I’ve heard Zack Snyder and Michael Wilkinson’s name being thrown about,” Samantha Jo, the actress who played Amazon warrior Euboea in the DC Comics films said in a post on Twitter.

“I have NEVER felt more empowered than I have on Zack Snyder sets. I have never once been told to sand in a pretty way or perform something with more skin or feminine movements. I have been most appreciated for my strong stances and posture in my fighting. I’ve always felt not just comfortable, but confident in what I was wearing and how I was being represented,” she said.
