What: We’ll be talking about all the films you loved, hated, and didn’t see this Oscar season, as well as dishing out about all the Oscar-related gossip we know (why was Steve McQueen clapping like that? did that pizza guy get that money? does Ellen really use a Samsung phone?). Tune in for dresses, documentaries, and other dirt.

This is the same man.
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.
COMMENTARYThis is very important. Look at the difference there - LOOK. Every time some comic-reading shitlord comes to me when I complain about how women are treated in comic art, I want them to LOOK AT THIS and then come back to me and say that shit with a straight face. Cause I’m telling you - Ripped McBullBody isn’t for us. It never, ever was.

Damn, he’s stepped up his hotness game since getting to Russia somehow. It’s all the red he’s wearing. Best colour.
