When Mattel and Nickelodeon revealed a silhouette of the new Dora in March, many parents were upset. Unlike the old Dora, the new Dora is aimed at girls from five to tween. Many parents thought the older Dora was a sexed-up version of the younger Dora.
Hello. Has anyone noticed how women are drawn in comic books? The girls in comics make the new Dora look like a prude. I know, comic books are targeted at older kids, but the graphics at the bottom is an example of the type of comics my five year old son checks out from the kids section at the library.
Funny thing is, I didn’t notice how curvy the women superheroes were drawn when I was a kid. All I cared about was the guys’ super powers and their super cool costumes. I think I must have been gay when I was a boy.
