My point is, you can still see Xena's 'panties' through the large gaps, sure she is covering up a little, but c'mon, there is not that much difference.

As i said in an edited add in another post...if that is your personal perference for that aesthetic, fine, more power to you.
*but* if you, like that guy 'kingmadness', or anyone else, are insinuating that people who prefer a more revealing aesthetic, don't respect women, then it sounds like you are trying to bs women into thinking you are some kind of 'good guy', who would never dream of looking at them in a sexual way.
Whereas, smart women can smell that bs from a mile away, and *that* action, of attempting to bs them, is what they would consider being disrespectful to them.

and its not about prudishness. i personally have no problem with the outfit, but you will never get the likes of Emily Blunt to scamper around like that for two hours. ill happily sacrifice the cleavage for a top shelf actress. plus i like the idea of a practical, classical greek warrior costume. exposing your chest makes no sense for her if she's gonna battle a heavy hitter.

Cap got a fairly radical redesign for his debut movie and the same can be done for Wonder Woman. Its an ADAPTATION. If the movie is good (a huge IF im afraid) the redesigned costume wont mean squat.
eh, EB got the role of BW remember, there was a scheduling conflict so she couldn't play the role, so she was at aleast prepared to wear a skintight costume. Who are you to say what she would wear onscreen, and what she wouldn't, I imagine she would laugh at the absurdity of this conversation, and she would feel you were disrespecting her fellow thespians who *have* chosen to wear revealing outfits in action movies already.
Because you are sounding very disrespectful to one actress already, and i feel what i posted above may well apply to you.

I think there is a clear difference. The battleskirt is not the same as panties even if you could occasionally see under it. It is also steeped in history and worn by men at some time or another.

It is unfair to assume that everyone who doesn't like it is faking it.

Not much, not enough to make the distinction between 'lingerie' and 'battle dress', c'mon.

I never made any such assumption, I said 'if you are...', because if you are, like 'kingmadness' saying(he actually said this, edited to add: and you quoted him and agreed with his post), or insinuating, that people who prefer a more revealing aesthetic(which is what superhero books are full of, always have been) do not disrespect women, then it sounds like you are talking a lot of bull in an attempt to make yourself look good, and others bad.
and as I said, if that is just a personal aesthetic preference, more power to you. If you are being a bit prudish, not always a bad thing of course, then fair enough. Just as it is not always a bad thing to want some sexuality brought to the table.

One is underwear. One is something you wear over underwear. Clear distinction.

How this not an assumption? You are undermining what he is saying by writing him off as faking it for brownie points.

I meant I am not assuming *everyone*(as you put it) who is opposed to revealing superhero outfits is doing that.
But, 'kingmadness', yeah, damn right I am assuming, I can read between the lines like any intelligent person.
You quoted him and agreed with that post, that the WW outfit is disrespectful to women, ergo, by insinuation, those who want to see a costume like that don't respect women.
Hell, look at joeyjojo, he claims he is not being prudish! haha, it is the proper word to use, of course he is being prudish, and as I said, that is not always a bad thing of course, but liking a bit of sexuality brought to the table is not always a bad thing either.

edit: I see kingmadness and joeyjojo underneath the page, but I guess they are waiting until i go to bed before answering with some degree of outraged umbrage, sorry, the word umbrage almost sounded like a caveman shouting about a bra, sorry about that.

But why do you think WW's outfit is disrespectful to women? That sounds like something that would be said in more unenlightened times. Like, during the time of the Crucible.
Traditional Wonder Woman runs around in her underwear. You need to be more respectful then that especially today. I don't think people would except a live action WW in her panties today.

You must have some very strange underwear in your neck of the woods, because in the Lynda Carter show she wore massive padded short shorts. There is a shot of her wearing a blue skirt with the stars in the pilot episode, but even apart from it not looking as sexy, it just did not look as cool as the shorts.

So i guess somewhere along the way we got to a point where people don't think it's a good idea to see a women's legs on display in a movie, what happened with that, could someone fill me in?

soundofyousick im gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are just trolling. otherwise, you're just incredibly dense. and annoying as hell. i hope for your sake you dont behave like this in your everyday life.

and you should really refrain from making baseless assumptions about complete strangers. free advice. (by the way, Ms. Blunt has stated on several occasions that she has a problem with roles that serve to objectify women sexually. Hence, not a BASELESS assumption)

on-topic: theOVOVX, I like the last one, but I would go with a more solid skirt. Maybe a combo of the top skirt and the bottom top (if that makes sense). the shield is optional lol.

I like those designs, although I prefer the gold to silver on the armour(and the headgear and armgear on the first one are a bit too overelaborate). And, y'know, I am not opposed to seeing an outfit that covers her up more than the Lynda Carter show did, I just want the outfit to look cool and sexy in a super-hero-y way, not some generic battle armour that we have seen in umpteen movies before.

Everybody in this topic is trying to start with me.

I wasn't insinuating that at all, way to grasp at straws Jesus. When the hell did I ever say that? All I said was that a Wonder Woman that runs around in a bikini doesn't do the modern woman justice.

Xena's battle skirt covers up a lot more, is hella better than straight up underwear, and is historically accurate.

I am trying to keep this ontopic, but I will reply to this, you said on your Xena pic post that this was an outfit that respected women, ergo , you meant that WW's outfit disrespected women, ergo, by insinuation, anyone who prefers the regular revealing WW costume does not respect women.
Leave it there man, for the sake of the thread, let people make their own minds up over what you meant by that statement.

Watch your mouth homeboy.

How about we leave it here, where it belongs. I made a statement, and you took that statement, internalized, and blew it out of proportion, probably because your having a bad day. Hmm, look I just put it down right there, looks like a good spot to leave it. On your face. Have a nice sleep sleep

After this reply, I am going to ignore you, not on the ignore list, just ignore your posts.
Who said the skirt was unreasonable? I said it was ridiculous to say that a few straps of leather , with wide gaps between them(hence still revealing) was the difference between 'lingerie' and 'battle armour'.
You know this already, this is why i am going to ignore you, you are not worth talking to as you are not here to talk maturely.

Yeah, I will, I'll have a better sleep and waking than you will ever have, thank you very much. I don't need smilies, haha, all I need is truth.

Have fun bro, you can blow everything you want out of proportion in your dreams. In your dreams, when you picks fights, you'll actually win em too! Unlike in real life. Unlike right now. Just explaining what I meant so you don't do your own private "reading between the lines" through the lens of a mad man.

Forget the detailing or even the materials. I was just talking coverage. By all means make it more WW-esque. There was a decent example from the comics a few posts back.

and yeah that dude was a bit off his rocker. bad form at the very least.

Just stick with the classic costume. Feminists don't make a big deal about it. The rest of us shouldn't care.

I can see how the classic costume doesn't neccessarily look all that practical or even Greek/Amazon. But to suggest its somehow not respectful to women? I guess if bathing suits are also disrespectful to women...
