So, you're feminist and you're happy that Stephanie slapped Batman. Well how would you like if male character would slap Wonder Woman?
oh my god
i dunno did Wonder Woman purposefully manipulate a teenage male character endlessly and constantly put them through weird trials and tests for no fucking reason and was that male character previously abused by a mother figure and WW took advantage of their issues with that? Did she treat him differently from her other charges? Did WW canonically judge that male character for coming from a family with a “criminal background”? Was the male character then subjected to a horrible crossover where they were tortured and treated like shit and WW was automatically absolved of all blame for her role in it by passing the buck to a previously pacifist doctor?
Yeah then, I’d be down for her getting slapped for that.
But guess what. THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. DC would NEVER treat a male character like that (unless he was poc, I suppose, but it would take a different form then) DC would NEVER tear down a male sidekick to build WW up. Fuck, they’ve never given WW a male sidekick in the first place. A dude looking up to a lady and carrying on her legacy is too much for them.
DC COMICS TREATS MALE CHARACTERS DIFFERENTLY FROM FEMALE ONES. GASP.
And most importantly? WW has never been shown to be capable of the kind of treatment Bruce gave Stephanie. I couldn’t ever see her saying a person from a criminal family needs to be watched, or putting children through weirdass psychological manipulation.
