This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!”, imo. On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this. On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.
Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.
So… You know the whole dragons kidnap virgin princesses and all that?
What if they kidnapped them to protect them from man?
What if they taught them out to be dragons and how to fight back against knights who only saw them as prizes?
What if dragons aren’t born? Buy rather they’re taught.
All dragons are princesses who learned this and became so much more.
