Warner Bros. makes a lot of money each year licensing the rights to the superhero IP of DC Comics. And that includes literally hundreds of t-shirts. We know that licensing can be pretty strict. It took a public shaming for them to allow the Superman logo to be used on a statue of a young fan who had been starved to death.
So it’s always interesting to what DOES get signed off on. Like this shirt.
Click the “read more” to see the t-shirt.
Besides the obvious main issue that this shirt portrays Wonder Woman as some sort of accomplishment achieved by Superman, and that the relationship is framed as being all about Superman & how awesome he is that he “got” her, the whole concept of the shirt is weird to me. The phrasing doesn’t seem to fit at all. It isn’t a comic style kind of phrasing, and Superman, as a cultural icon, isn’t known for his sexual prowess. You think Superman, and you generally think “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” or him punching giant robots or something. Not “SCORE! LOOK AT SUPERMAN AND ANOTHER SEXUAL CONQUEST!” (and of course Wonder Woman as a sexual conquest -_-) So, this entire thing also seems really incongruous to me and trying to place both Superman and Wonder Woman in contexts that don’t suit them, just to shoe horn in the “look at this stud getting the hot babe!” framing.
Update: Via Comics Alliance, DC has issued a statement about the above t-shirt as well as a couple of other ones that have taken criticism recently (you can see the other ones in the Comics Alliance article):DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.Thanks to all the readers who pointed me to this!

What Happened to the Computer Girls?
Believe it or not, in the 1960’s, programming was seen as women’s work. It was even touted as being “just like planning a dinner”.
So what happened?
Eventually male programmers wanted to raise their status above “women’s work”. So they actively discouraged women from these positions, designed hiring tests rigged for men, and even created the stereotype that programmers are disinterested in people. No wonder in the years since, it’s still a male dominated field. Women earned only 18% of the computer science degrees awarded in 2008-2011.
Alright ladies, we need to bust this myth. It’s been too long. Find organizations like Scientista or Sally Ride Science that help encourage women and girls in STEM interests. Find mentors and connect with other women interested in STEM.
Computer Science departments in universities are some of the most racist, sexist, downright misogynist hell holes, with the worst kind of men. Everyone from male professors to male TAs are bullying arseholes who eschew the worst kind of “white male victim” complex. Not only do they treat female students like crap, they also pick on female professors in the department. Many male professors don’t help female students, and male TAs are creepy fucks who think they can flirt with you if you go to them for help, especially if you’re a non-white woman.

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE
The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.
Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.
Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.
People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.
she tried to file a police report, hahahahaha! foolish.
