DC Comics Thinks Their T-Shirts Suck Too


dcwomenkickingass:

Since I started this blog four years ago I’ve reported on problematic merchandise featuring DC Comics IP too many times to mention. And it seems to go the same way:

1. Post on item

2. Get worked over in comments, Twitter and comics forums by people stating one or more of the following:

  • feminists have no sense of humor aka “Ah yes, more, more bullsh*t from the feminist brigade”
  • that there are “real problems” in the world and question why “this is even an issue”
  • I’m a woman and have no problem with it
  • I showed it to my wife/daughter/girlfriend/mother and they had no problem with it
  • You “misinterpreted” the item 
  • comics are for dudes so get over it
  • why did I ignore that other thing so clearly I am a selective journalist that just hates DC and finally, always a favorite,
  • I’m an ugly bitch SJW feminazi who needs a good dickin’

And yup all that stuff got said this week when I posted about a t-shirt featuring Wonder Woman and Superman that basically elicited a huge EWWWW from most people who saw it.

Coincidentally another t-shirt popped this week that state the wearer was “training to be Batman’s wife”.

And that got an equal amount of disgust.

But this time? This time DC Comics responded to the issue and we got this:

DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.

I have to admit I’m surprised to not only see them comment but acknowledge the problem and say they will try and fix it.

Good job, DC.

I guess you misjudged me. I guess I did. You’re just a little sinner like the rest of us. I’m almost kind of sad about that.
