When guys try to use the “men are ALSO objectified in comics because of their rippling muscles and skin-tight suits!” I wanna scream “IT’S NOT THE SAME THING!”

Those big burly men in comics are not designed with the female gaze in mind. They are self-image power fantasies designed to appeal to MEN. So what does a female equivalent look like? It looks something like this...

ENJOY!

Your demagoguery is just a childish attempt at rationalization. No seriously, you're incredibly childish and cannot contemplate a context outside of your own narrow worldview.

A demagogue or rabble-rouser is a political leader in a democracy who appeals to the emotions, fears, prejudices, and ignorance of the lower classes in order to gain power and promote political motives. Demagogues usually oppose deliberation and advocate immediate, violent action to address a national crisis; they accuse moderate and thoughtful opponents of weakness.

So... by that definition I hold a position of political power and can control those in the class BELOW me? I didn't realize dirt was a political party! I'll start at once building my empire by using bulldozers to VIOLENTLY take action and accuse the dirt of being inferior to boots!

Or we could just use both versions of the posters to show we welcome both genders? :P
