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.

If that’s her shoulder on the far left, I’m not entirely sure what happened to her neck.  Oh god, Pantene, what have you done?
