Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.

Wow.

I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!

Yeah, but: There’s a reason for the word AMAZON.

It’s great that Kacy Catanzaro is small but is strong as hell. But don’t we have enough ‘strong female characters’ who are skinny and model-delicate? Why can’t Diana, the Princess of the Amazons, actually BE the cultural ideal of what an Amazon is? The one female character who has it built into her mythology that she’s huge and powerful — taller than most of her male peers — and it’s “closed minded and ignorant” to want her to look like that, when we don’t see that kind of female strength in the media unless they’re making that woman out to be a freak or grotesque?

So even apart from her disgusting anti-Palestine comments, Gal Gadot is not the Wonder Woman for me. I DO want a big strong Amazon princess. Where the hell else am I gonna get one?
