Flying Lady Bits!

A quote from Grant Morrison, the guy who’s writing the new Wonder Woman comics:

“Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane is now shaped like a vagina, it’s the most incredible thing. It opens up in the back and it has a little clitoris hood, everything is a female-based design.”

I have this to say about that:

First off, I HATE the invisible jet. HATE. Wonder Woman can fly, wtf invisible jet?

I’m also not buying the whole female society = vagina plane because:
1.I’m fairly sure that jets/planes are shaped the way they are for aerodynamics.
2.I’m also pretty sure that looking at random objects and saying, “hey, that looks like my junk!” is a dude thing. I’ve never heard anyone talk about how yonic boats are, for example.
3.Personally, I never felt marginalized by an aircraft because it did not represent my genitalia.
And for those reasons, I am not convinced that a womancentric society would feel the need to make flying vajayjays. Especially not to the point of including “a little clitoris hood.”

But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m a little sheltered princess that never realized the harsh reality of scientific discovery and technological advancement. A reality where cylindrical objects must be the embodiment of new discoveries if they want to be considered legitimate.

I do appreciate what Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette (the artist) are trying to do. Sort of.
For those of you who haven’t studied art, especially contemporary art, you may not know that there is a common theme among male artists who try to do feminist art; their works are almost always about a) vaginas or b) the lack of a penis. I feel that Wonder Woman may have fallen into this trap and that there is a risk that her new comics will be more about having a vagina( and/or not having a penis) than telling a story about a strong, well-rounded woman.

But maybe I’ll be wrong. I hope so.

One thing is for sure, an invisible flying vagoo does sound like it could be “the most incredible thing.”
