I would not only watch a show like this now, but I would’ve killed for a show like this when I was a kid. Back then, it was pretty much She-Ra…and that was it. :) I loved Power Puff Girls (and bought plenty of merch for myself and friends), and think that girls today would LOVE a show like this. So would their moms! :)

I’m going to try a little Super Best Friends Forever experiment here. Warner Bros. have put out some fantastic shorts during their DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network. They are evolving one of those into a series - Teen Titans Go! It’s almost a continuation of the old Teen Titans animated series but either way, sounds like fun. I know a lot of folks were hoping SBFF would also move on to a half hour series as well but from what I’ve been hearing, it’s not likely and my question is - why?
Warner Bros. don’t believe a “girls” show has the same selling power as a “boys” show and I’d like to prove them wrong. I’d point them to the huge successes that were Lauren Faust’s Power Puff Girls (EDIT for clarity, I know Craig McCracken created PPG, Faust also worked on the franchise. Sorry if I confused anyone!) and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic were, I’d tell them women make almost all the purchasing decisions for their household (specifically entertainment), that they are seriously underestimating how much parents spend on their daughters, and that children aren’t the only consumers of animated TV shows and their related products. I could do that but what I’d like to see right now is all of YOU do that. 
Reblog or like this post if you’d not only watch a Super Best Friends Forever television show but buy products based on it. (Money talks, remember?) Add your own commentary or not but let’s see what the numbers say.

Today&#8217;s been a great day for awesome images. Here&#8217;s one from the comics world. What superhero costumes would look like if they were designed for men the way they&#8217;re designed for women. :)

Comics, Birth Control, and Sour Grapes

A couple of linky-links you might find interesting:

The fabulous Jill Pantozzi hit the nail on the head in her assessment of the DC Comics Neilsen survey about the New 52 over at The Mary Sue. Check it out, and marvel (no pun intended) at the willful mediocrity.

The Daily Beast reports about Obama’s intelligent compromise between accessible birth control for women and the religious employers who would deny coverage of birth control to their employees.

Employers should have no say in an employees decision to have children. Period.

Someone call the whaaaaaaaaambulance. Karen Handel, after (thankfully) resigning from the Susan G. Komen foundation called Planned Parenthood a “gigantic bully” for starting a “campaign” that got people all riled up against Komen. (also from The Daily Beast)

I hate to break it to you, Ms. Handel. PP didn’t have to start a campaign. It’s just that a lot of people DISAGREE WITH YOU. Hopefully, now that you’ve got a freer schedule, you’ll be able to reflect on exactly how you went wrong and maybe do something about keeping your personal beliefs out of how you handle an organization’s money.

Um, yeah. Pretty much. I, too, loved Starfire in the Teen Titans cartoon, which I watched on DVD not that long ago when babysitting a 6 year old boy who was into them.
He would hate this new comic, too, if his parents were dumb enough to let him read it.

Women and Sex in Comics (or anything, really)

Cunning Minx sent me a really wonderful piece written by Laura Hudson over at Comics Alliance on the problem with the sexualization of Catwoman and Starfire in the New DCU.

Like Hudson, I am a huge fan of women who are presented as sexual creatures. Female characters who show that a woman shouldn’t be ashamed of her desires, or be thought of as a slut because she sleeps with many people.

However, also like Hudson, it frustrates me that in the issues introducing these two female characters, their sexuality is the first thing we’re supposed to know about them. Would they introduce Superman by showing us who he sleeps with? Or Batman? Or Green Lantern?

Now, I haven’t read either of the comics in question, but why INTRODUCE them that way in a #1 issue? Why relate to these characters through their sexuality FIRST? Why is it that that’s the thing that is most important to see? Sexual empowerment is great, but it’s only one aspect of any woman. I’m waiting for the day when women will be related to OTHER than sexually. Because no matter where you turn, it always seems that the things that are important about a woman in fiction are the things that relate to sex. It’s ridiculous. There’s more to us than our vaginas.

There are things I like about the upcoming DC Comics reboot, and there are things I don&#8217;t like.
And then there are things that - think what you may of me - totally appeal to my girlie bits.
Check out what Superman&#8217;s gonna look like on the cover of Action Comics #1. Now I&#8217;ve always had a great deal of respect for Superman as a character, and I understand how his personality is appealing&#8230;but I&#8217;ve never thought of him as hot.
For the first time, after seeing this picture of him in his new look, I was inspired to think, &#8220;I would totally fuck him.&#8221; No, really. Like, he might be more powerful than a locomotive, but I would handle it! I would leap him in a single bound! Look! Down in my pants! It&#8217;s a bird&#8230;it&#8217;s a plane&#8230;no, it&#8217;s Superman.
Excuse me, while I make an appointment with my therapist to figure out what this all means&#8230;

Love the idea of this&#8230;but the guys couldn&#8217;t come up with better costumes for those characters? Really?
