100 Women: The artist redrawing ‘sexist’ comic book covers



An artist in India is challenging sexist drawings of women in comic books by parodying them using male heroes in poses typically associated with women.
She-Hulk has superhuman strength and speed and is one of the most formidable hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel world.
Like Hulk, not only does she have physical power, she’s also completely green.
Yet, on a 1991 comic book cover, she is shown in a seductive pose, wearing a G-string bikini, with her curves sharply accentuated.
Indian artist Shreya Arora was shocked when she saw the image.
“For Hulk, the visual representation focuses on his strength. For She-Hulk, all we see is an emphasis on sexuality,” says Arora, who grew up reading comic books.
The 21-year-old graphic designer decided she wanted to flip the narrative.



Why is depicting women as sexy considered sexist? 

The irony, of course, is that there already was a Spider-Man cover like that second one.
Also, this is literally judging a book by its cover. Heck, you’re even ignoring the 

self-aware speech bubble. The book actually starts with She-Hulk on a beach, so the cover is actually appropriate to the contents. And can I just-

LOOK AT SPIDEY’S CROTCH. LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT IT.
Yes, clearly we needed a view of Tony’s skintight bodysuit.
This is doing the same thing as the Hawkeye Initiative. It’s not clever or original.

There are blogs I’d expect to caption a Spiderman picture with “LOOK AT SPIDEY’S CROTCH. LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT IT.” and then there is this blog. Guess I was wrong.

gander: Babe: What that mouth do? Me: Complain. I've been doing alright as of late, but I'm still paranoid at every sound I hear. As I started writing this, the wind picked up, and I can hear rain hitting the roof, getting harder by the minute. Looks like that weather warning wasn't entirely bullshit, huh? So, I took my dogs up to the shower to do their business, as one of you suggested-I'll edit this after publishing it with his-her username. I haven't gone upstairs yet, but I have nothing else to report, and I don't want to give you a half-assed update, so I'm going to go take a gander out the window and document what I see as I see it. I just went upstairs. I think I'll take the box of Samoas down with me when a go back down. Hell, I'll take the Samoas AND the Thin Mints. Desperate times call for desperate measures. As you maybe can tell, humor is how I deal with stress. Unhealthy, I know, but whatever. It is what it is. I just went to the window. I don't see anything, but the neighbor's window is still very broken. The street is very dark and all the lights are very off. Now it's raining, though-the streets are overflowing with water, almost, and--there, the first flash of lightning. Thunder came immediately. The storm's right over us. Right over our little town. The girl doesn't seem to be outside anymore, but I'll be keeping my eyes open. Weird, after that first lightning strike, the sky's lighting up every few seconds. Like I said, nobody around here, including me, is very informed on severe weather, seeing as it never comes our way, but I'm pretty sure that isn't common. Okay, I just-what the fuck? Okay, the neighbor's door just opened. The one with the broken window. Nobody's there, though. Must've been the wind. I hope he noticed. Come to think of it, maybe I should give him a call and see how he's doing. We used to talk sometimes, after all. It would be nice to hear from someone going through the same shit. Wait. to be continued...

Here’s what I found: <br/>(Sorry this is so US centric) <br/>(I’ll also try to stay close to primary sources as possible)</p> <p>(<a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6308a1.htm?s_cid=ss6308a1_e">http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6308a1.htm?s_cid=ss6308a1_e</a>)</p> <p><b>- the 12 months before taking the survey, an estimated 4.0% of women experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner<br/></b><b>-an estimated 14.2% of women experienced some form of psychological aggression in the 12 months preceding the survey.<br/></b><b>-*4,774,000 women have been victims of physical violence by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey<br/></b><b>-*17,091,000 women have been victims of psychological aggression by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey</b></p> <p><b>- the 12 months before taking the survey, an estimated 4.8% of men experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner<br/></b><b>-an estimated 18.0% of men experienced some form of psychological aggression in the 12 months preceding the survey.<br/></b><b>-*5,452,000 men have been victims of physical violence by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey<br/></b><b>-*20,471,000 men have been victims of psychological aggression by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey</b></p> <p>*Table 6</p> <p>By the data presented by the Center for Disease Control, out of the estimate of 10,226,000 yearly victims of intimate partner violence, 53.3% of victims where male and 46.6% were female. As for psychological aggression, out of the estimate of 37,562,000 yearly victims, 54.4% were male and 45.5% were female. These statistics would support the claim made in the bottom left.</p> <p>Now I couldn’t find a primary source for the 70% of DV is initiated by women, but here’s the facts that I found, which may have been interpreted by the people who made this poster:</p> <p>(<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-sacks/researcher-says-womens-in_b_222746.html">http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-sacks/researcher-says-womens-in_b_222746.html</a>)<br/>-Women who were in a battered women’s shelter, 67% of the women reported severe violence toward their partner in the past year.</p> <p>This can be interpreted as “67% of violent couples with IPV is mutual”. But then again, primary sources and full data would be helpful to back up this claim.</p> <p>But the one that is most interesting is:(<a href="http://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/newsArticle.aspx?articleid=111137">http://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/newsArticle.aspx?articleid=111137</a>)(Another report analysis from the CDC)</p> <p>-23.9% of relationships are violent<br/>-50.3% of IPV is non-reciprocal and 49.7% is reciprocal (Reciprocal IPV= Mutual violence)<br/>-70.7% of non-reciprocal IPV is initiated by women. </p> <p>So summing up the numbers, it’s not that 70% of all DV is initiated by women, its that 70% of non-reciprocal DV is initiated by women. To go further would say that 49.7% of DV is mutual, 36.2% of DV is initiated by women, and 14.5% of DV is initiated by men</p> </blockquote> <p>Male victims of domestic violence are real. They are hurting. And they often don’t get the attention and compassion they so urgently deserve and need.</p> <p>Have a heart. Open your mind, and give a care.</p> </blockquote> <p>Hm. These numbers are all so different to anything I’ve seen before. I’m reblogging and liking this both for my own reference and to spread these numbers to others. I’m definitely gonna look into this and see if I can find more sources and more information.</p> </blockquote> <p>Mother fuckers can we all just say let’s not be dicks to our fucking love ones already?</p> </blockquote> <p>Tagging this for my speech project that I need the sources for</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="http://web.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm">Here are 221 studies on IPV / DV for y’all.</a></p> </blockquote> <p>You are a life saver.</p> </blockquote> <p>That list is good, but outdated.  I e-mailed the researcher who compiled that list a couple weeks ago and he gave me three different documents.  <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ivtjidsoveshau6/AADPQ8g7F-7YQV8h12PQ0HA5a?dl=0">I uploaded them to this dropbox folder.</a> You can go there and download them.</p> <p>The list of studies is now up to <b>343 scholarly investigations</b> (270 empirical studies and 73 reviews). Not only did he send me that list, but he also sent me two meta-studies (also in the dropbox folder).  One is on male/female <b>perpetration</b> rates and the other is on male/female <b>victimization</b> rates. </p> <p>There is also “<a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pdf/PASK.Tables3.Revised.pdf"><b>Rates of Bi-directional versus Uni-directional Intimate Partner Violence Across Samples, Sexual Orientations, and Race/Ethnicities: A Comprehensive Review</b></a>“. <b> </b>It’s a mouthful to be sure. Basically this study took the data from 48 other empirical studies, collated the data, placed it online for public viewing, submitted it for peer review, and was found to be accurate. </p> <p>It’s findings basically wind down to this:</p> <ul><li>84% of relationships are non-violent</li> <li>58% of relationships that are violent, both partners abuse the other.</li> <li>28% of violent relationships only the woman is violent</li> <li>14% of violent relationships only the man is violent.</li> </ul><p>This is featured <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/"><b>Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project </b>website</a> and is part of a much larger DV research project.  You can read<a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pages/12_page_findings.htm"> the summarized findings here</a> or take a gander at the <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pdf/Overviewof%20Findings.Dec.7.pdf">full 61-page review</a>.  This is a compilation of the research of Erin Pizzey, Murray Strauss, Don Dutton, and many others who are challenging the feminist model of patriarchal dominance. They also have <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pages/video_presentations.htm">some videos that are very informative as well</a>.</p> <p>Murray Strauss also compiled: <b><a href="http://pubpages.unh.edu/~mas2/V71-Straus_Thirty-Years-Denying-Evidence-PV_10.pdf">Thirty Years of Denying the Evidence on Gender Symmetry in Partner Violence: Implications for Prevention and Treatment</a>. </b> A report detailing the existence of over 200 studies showing gender symmetry in victimization rates. Studies that show symmetry going as far back as 1975.  He also examines the methods feminist researchers have used to suppress the evidence from public discourse, hence the title “Thirty Years of Denying the Evidence”.</p> <p>Two other excellent and brief videos on the topic come from the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAlVRoYjDbgLx7j6O2N8-2g">MenAreGood YouTube channel</a>:</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lHmCN3MBMI"> Male Victims of Domestic Violence - The Hidden Story</a><br/></p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKXVcUSBKH4"> Bias Against Men and Boys in Mental Health Research</a> <br/></p> <p>I really need to write up a solo reference post for domestic violence data…</p> </blockquote> <p>You are also a life saver.</p> </blockquote> <p>This is so important</p> </blockquote> <p>Reblogging since this is a huge list of scholarly sources.

<p>I was pretty skeptical about the figures, since they contradict what I usually hear on the media, so I did a little research. Here’s what I found: <br/>(Sorry this is so US centric) <br/>(I’ll also try to stay close to primary sources as possible)</p>
<p>(<a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6308a1.htm?s_cid=ss6308a1_e">http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6308a1.htm?s_cid=ss6308a1_e</a>)</p>
<p><b>- the 12 months before taking the survey, an estimated 4.0% of women experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner<br/></b><b>-an estimated 14.2% of women experienced some form of psychological aggression in the 12 months preceding the survey.<br/></b><b>-*4,774,000 women have been victims of physical violence by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey<br/></b><b>-*17,091,000 women have been victims of psychological aggression by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey</b></p>
<p><b>- the 12 months before taking the survey, an estimated 4.8% of men experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner<br/></b><b>-an estimated 18.0% of men experienced some form of psychological aggression in the 12 months preceding the survey.<br/></b><b>-*5,452,000 men have been victims of physical violence by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey<br/></b><b>-*20,471,000 men have been victims of psychological aggression by intimate partner in the 12 months preceding the survey</b></p>
<p>*Table 6</p>
<p>By the data presented by the Center for Disease Control, out of the estimate of 10,226,000 yearly victims of intimate partner violence, 53.3% of victims where male and 46.6% were female. As for psychological aggression, out of the estimate of 37,562,000 yearly victims, 54.4% were male and 45.5% were female. These statistics would support the claim made in the bottom left.</p>
<p>Now I couldn’t find a primary source for the 70% of DV is initiated by women, but here’s the facts that I found, which may have been interpreted by the people who made this poster:</p>
<p>(<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-sacks/researcher-says-womens-in_b_222746.html">http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-sacks/researcher-says-womens-in_b_222746.html</a>)<br/>-Women who were in a battered women’s shelter, 67% of the women reported severe violence toward their partner in the past year.</p>
<p>This can be interpreted as “67% of violent couples with IPV is mutual”. But then again, primary sources and full data would be helpful to back up this claim.</p>
<p>But the one that is most interesting is:(<a href="http://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/newsArticle.aspx?articleid=111137">http://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/newsArticle.aspx?articleid=111137</a>)(Another report analysis from the CDC)</p>
<p>-23.9% of relationships are violent<br/>-50.3% of IPV is non-reciprocal and 49.7% is reciprocal (Reciprocal IPV= Mutual violence)<br/>-70.7% of non-reciprocal IPV is initiated by women. </p>
<p>So summing up the numbers, it’s not that 70% of all DV is initiated by women, its that 70% of non-reciprocal DV is initiated by women. To go further would say that 49.7% of DV is mutual, 36.2% of DV is initiated by women, and 14.5% of DV is initiated by men</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Male victims of domestic violence are real. They are hurting. And they often don’t get the attention and compassion they so urgently deserve and need.</p>
<p>Have a heart. Open your mind, and give a care.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Hm. These numbers are all so different to anything I’ve seen before. I’m reblogging and liking this both for my own reference and to spread these numbers to others. I’m definitely gonna look into this and see if I can find more sources and more information.</p>

<p>That list is good, but outdated.  I e-mailed the researcher who compiled that list a couple weeks ago and he gave me three different documents.  <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ivtjidsoveshau6/AADPQ8g7F-7YQV8h12PQ0HA5a?dl=0">I uploaded them to this dropbox folder.</a> You can go there and download them.</p>
<p>The list of studies is now up to <b>343 scholarly investigations</b> (270 empirical studies and 73 reviews). Not only did he send me that list, but he also sent me two meta-studies (also in the dropbox folder).  One is on male/female <b>perpetration</b> rates and the other is on male/female <b>victimization</b> rates. </p>
<p>There is also “<a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pdf/PASK.Tables3.Revised.pdf"><b>Rates of Bi-directional versus Uni-directional Intimate Partner Violence Across Samples, Sexual Orientations, and Race/Ethnicities: A Comprehensive Review</b></a>“. <b> </b>It’s a mouthful to be sure. Basically this study took the data from 48 other empirical studies, collated the data, placed it online for public viewing, submitted it for peer review, and was found to be accurate. </p>
<p>It’s findings basically wind down to this:</p>
<ul><li>84% of relationships are non-violent</li>
<li>58% of relationships that are violent, both partners abuse the other.</li>
<li>28% of violent relationships only the woman is violent</li>
<li>14% of violent relationships only the man is violent.</li>
</ul><p>This is featured <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/"><b>Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project </b>website</a> and is part of a much larger DV research project.  You can read<a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pages/12_page_findings.htm"> the summarized findings here</a> or take a gander at the <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pdf/Overviewof%20Findings.Dec.7.pdf">full 61-page review</a>.  This is a compilation of the research of Erin Pizzey, Murray Strauss, Don Dutton, and many others who are challenging the feminist model of patriarchal dominance. They also have <a href="http://www.domesticviolenceresearch.org/pages/video_presentations.htm">some videos that are very informative as well</a>.</p>
<p>Murray Strauss also compiled: <b><a href="http://pubpages.unh.edu/~mas2/V71-Straus_Thirty-Years-Denying-Evidence-PV_10.pdf">Thirty Years of Denying the Evidence on Gender Symmetry in Partner Violence: Implications for Prevention and Treatment</a>. </b> A report detailing the existence of over 200 studies showing gender symmetry in victimization rates. Studies that show symmetry going as far back as 1975.  He also examines the methods feminist researchers have used to suppress the evidence from public discourse, hence the title “Thirty Years of Denying the Evidence”.</p>
<p>Two other excellent and brief videos on the topic come from the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAlVRoYjDbgLx7j6O2N8-2g">MenAreGood YouTube channel</a>:</p>
