Wonder Woman, KILLING it. See, THIS is why they can’t make a Wonder Woman movie, because Wonder Woman is not putting up with your bullshit, and they KNOW they’d get ripped to shreds if they did her dirty.
Yo, I don’t think you understand how important this movie is to me.
First off, barring the unstructured continuity and treating it as a stand-alone origin film, the scripting in this film was superb, especially when demonstrating how Diana could not believe how women were treated and acted in Man’s World.
From the moment she lands in NYC and sees a young girl distraught because she was forced into the role of “damsel in distress” by her male playmates, to the point where Etta Candy actually views her as a THREAT to her relationship with Steve Trevor simply because of how the patriarchy has taught women to be at each other’s throats for a man’s attention.
And Diana doesn’t even see Etta as a threat to her because she views all women as her sisters, regardless of race or social standing or age, that’s simply how she was raised (for any not familiar with the DC history of Amazons, there were several tribes on Themyscira, not just Greeks, so Diana was brought up around Amazons of varying races).
It’s so wild that they can’t simply transcribe this movie into a live-action version, and we all know WHY they refuse to make a WW movie. Even Joss Whedon dropped his attempt, most likely because he could not find a way to torture or maim Diana to give her “character growth” as he does to all his original female protagonists. It probably accounts for why Black Widow played such a bit role in the Avengers as well.
Vanity Fair writer-at-large Marie Brenner investigates the birth-control device NuvaRing, which has allegedly caused blood clots in thousands of its users. As NuvaRing’s manufacturer, Merck, which made $623 million in NuvaRing sales in 2012, is facing roughly 3,500 lawsuits against it, Brenner asks why, despite evidence of serious risk, this potentially lethal contraceptive remains on the market.
Would a young woman use NuvaRing, Brenner asks, if she knew that the F.D.A. had determined that there was a 56 percent increased risk of blood clots when it was compared with birth-control pills using earlier forms of progestin? Karen Langhart, the mother of Erika Langhart, a 24-year-old who died of a pulmonary embolism on Thanksgiving Day 2011 after using NuvaRing for approximately four years, tells Brenner, “I want to warn every mother and every daughter: do not use the product that killed my child.”
"Dr. Øjvind Lidegaard, who, after examining the health records of more than a million women, concluded that women using NuvaRing were more than six times as likely to develop blood clots as those who did not use hormonal contraceptives. Brenner reports that, while Merck Canada has changed its label to include the warnings from Lidegaard’s study, the U.S.-based Merck has failed to do so in the U.S.”
This is not the first time I’ve seen an article in a magazine about the dangers of the ring. I hope that people do their research and find a method that works best for them. I have read other articles that state that these new forms of hormones are not as safe as old forms (Yaz and Yasmin, anyone?)

I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.
