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.

Rogue just absorbed the powers of a Grey Ooze and Mystique wants to support her daughter through this struggle by using her body morphing power to twist her leg calf and ankle in sympathy.  Am I close?
