I find it so fucking hilarious, men think about famous women and female characters sexually all the time, they masturbate to the thought of Scarlett Johansson and Black Widow all the time, there is an entire genre of porn dedicated to spoofing movies like Star Wars and Harry Potter
but women write (sometimes novel length) pieces of fiction featuring their favourite characters who sometimes end up in sexual situations and it’s “weird” and “gross” and “odd”
and I’m just, I didn’t see your double standard there, would you mind just shoving it a bit further into my eye socket that’d be great
Men are literally spoonfed this sexual objectification of women characters by mainstream media itself. There isn’t one fucking poster of Back Widow that hasn’t provocatively positioned her body, hip jut, body turned to show her ass, breasts outlined. Comic book art has always been incredibly misogynistic, with women characters displayed in such a way that mouth-breathing dude readers can enjoy their comics and then have a wank after.
…so women spend time crafting fanworks that sexually stimulate them because mainstream media and comics offers us crumbs when it comes to stimulating our gaze, yet somehow, we end up the ‘weird,’ gross ones??
lol. oh ok.
