This Came Across My Attention…

And I usually do not get too huffy over stuff like this, because society is changing, albeit slowly. I cannot possibly comment on everything that seems sexist on the internet.

But because the Avengers is something I am really into and love…

Here’s some T-shirts that can be found in the Disney Store online

For boys

For boys

For girls

For girls

Another one for girls

I went on the site myself to see if people were being selective in what they chose to display to other people– just to get them riled up. Turns out they were not. I went through all the Avengers merchandise selection and saw that this was truly the only tees for women there.

So while little boys get to be heroes, little girls are told that they need a hero. I think we need a little bit of Black Widow spicing things up in here. Excuse me while I go find a hero to kiss because I cannot possibly do any ass kicking on my own.

      Ahaha XD I remember watching Justice League on TV when I was young. They’re pretty cool too, but I was pretty obsessed with the Avengers as each character started trickling out movie by movie during the past few years ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m glad you blogged about this not being ok – because it most certainly not ok. I don’t think this can be complained about enough. Though maybe I’m just annoyed because Iron Man’s my favourite and the superhero I identify most with, despite being a girl.

      Haha right?? I mean, I usually just leave these things be because this happens so often. And I am seeing change, so I tell myself that with time everything will eventually change. But this is the Avengers franchise we’re talking about so I had to say something! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
