Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

This might be more in the purview of Boobs Don’t Work That Way, so I’ll leave the obvious unsaid, but there’s one thing both have in common: I don’t think they’re for people with foot fetishes.
