Batman Is Looking For A Wife (But Only In US States That Will Allow It)
DC Comics, makers of Batman, produces this T-shirt that might be a tad sexist. That’s the unamarried Batman who lives with Robin. Stick that shirt on a Wonder Man and it might be nearer the mark. But, then, when Batman was born homosexuals didn’t exist.
DC Comics get all apologetic:
DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain T-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.
It’s a cartoon, people, about a wealthy man who dresses as a bat to punch villains in the face. Your values are of the 2D variety.
But it does seem that boys are encouraged to identify with super heroes; girls just want to be rescued and cook for them.
