Because. Seriously. You know what the world needs? A shitty Wonder Woman TV show where she has three love interests. THREE? FUCK, LETS SHOVE SOME MORE MEN IN THIS SHOW THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT A FUCKING AMAZON WHO FIGHTS CRIME. I DON'T THINK THERE'S ENOUGH MEN. WHY, WITH ONLY THREE MEN WE MIGHT THINK THAT WOMEN COULD DO THINGS ON THEIR OWN OR DON'T NEED TO THINK ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS ALL THE FUCKING TIME OR EVEN - GASP AND FUCKING SHOCK - MIGHT WANT TO FUCK OTHER WOMEN.

I shudder to think what the show will do when it has to touch upon such thorny topics as Wonder Woman and feminism. I keep having horrible acid flashbacks to the Wonder Woman animated movie - which was not as bad as I feared it would be, but still REALLY FUCKING BAD - and wanting to violently punch things. I don't care how fucking hilarious Nathan Fillion was as Steve Trevor (very hilarious, I must admit), his prominent role in the story was still fucking bullshit, as was the development of their relationship. Diana was apparently so hard up for sweet sweet cock that she'll go head-over for any ol' asshole who crash lands on her island regardless of how blatantly disrespectful he might be. HOW ROMANTIC...if you're the type of person who likes Twilight. I also don't see Superman needing Lois Lane's extensive, direct, physical help in the climactic battle of any of HIS movies. And if a movie written by Gail Simone and directed by a woman STILL CAN'T LET WONDER WOMAN BE A HERO ON HER OWN WITH NO PENISES INVOLVED AT ANY POINT, I do not want to see what's going to happen with a series for network TV.

And I'm not holding my breath for the casting job either. They say they want "late 20s to 30s" but somehow it's going to be Jessica Alba in a star-spangled bathing suit. Or it'll turn out to be Katy Perry for no raisin and then I will have to actually set the entire production on fire with my mind.

Man. I don't even LIKE Wonder Woman. I just want there to be a show where a woman can be the lead and the hero and get shit fuckin' DONE and the male characters will be minor supporting cast who get to stay in the fucking kitchen and watch while she fuckin' takes care of business. ALSO NO FUCKING ROMANCE. I like relationships between characters. I do. But every time a female character gets a boyfriend, suddenly shit is all about them so you know what? This time, lets just not. At all. It doesn't need to happen every time. Fandom will take care of that shit anyway, you don't need to worry your pretty little head over an actual romantic subplot. Just toss a few suggestive scenes in for a couple characters and let it go.

Usually I define crime as in hoodlums, bank robberies, pick pockets, hence why I keep going 'uhh.huh' when WW and crime fighting keeps coming up. When I first heard of the project I thought Diana was going to be running a Woman's Shelter or a charity organization. I mean that made sense right? Though their thoughts apparently didn't flow that way.

Next time, I should remember to control my rage before typing in a post instead of splaying it all over the screen.

I think there is a lot of truth to what you say here, especially given my own experiences where I have been thought of as being lesser because I did not fit into the stereotypical idea of man-liness. Restrictive is probably the best word for it given the number of people who would forsake 'vulnerability' just to look cool.
