So a couple of websites are showing this picture this morning,
Seems like Marvel and Disney have decided to marginalize girls once again. Not to mention the female members of the Avengers. This shirt retails at the Disney store for $24.50, for a t-shirt that’s an insult to women. Yeesh
I’ve mentioned before that as the father of a 7-year-old girl I’m always looking for ways to bring positive female role models into her life. Guess what? This ain’t it. When I showed Rebecca this shirt she told me it should say “I don’t need a hero, I am one.” Make me that shirt Marvel. And maybe put a female hero on it. Like Wasp, you know the one time leader of the Avengers (and the West Coast Avengers), or Black Widow who stole the show in Iron Man 2 by cleaning the clocks of a dozen guards without breaking a sweat.
But they won’t. They really are woefully ignorant of what the public wants. It’s a damn shame and a missed opportunity. Maybe the media &*#$storm will change their minds…
