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.

There are an infinite number of things that are wrong with this picture, not the least of which is that she may not have any genitals, all of her body mass appear to have gone to that one leg and apparently women have to be sexualized even during brutal death scenes.

Whatever these things are, their women don’t have bilateral symmetry… or genitals.

She barely looks human.  That could explain the lack of vulva and … whatever is up with her right leg.

Woman unconscious. Woman orgasming in porn.  *shrug* What’s the difference?
(an explosion that ONLY disintegrates underwear is interesting too)

I don’t generally have this problem, even with chibi or super-stylized art, but I’m having a real problem reading her as humanoid.

Apparently her pelvic area extends to at least mid-thigh. Beyond that, I don’t know how much further it goes, or whether or not there are any genitals at the end of it.

I think I get it.  These artists are part of a CIA covert operation.  If aliens ever tried to infiltrate Earth and read comics to imitate our anatomy, they’d be exposed pretty quickly!

That looks like somebody just gave her stomach a good squeeze and her organs popped into her chest.

This is like some sort of fable: The snake tried to devour her genitals, but little did it know she had carved them out with her knife beforehand, and so its plans were foiled.
Also am I the only one who sees those ab lines like two extra hands sticking into invisible pockets?
