Women have boobs. Just ask Wonder Woman.
Lynda Carter, the actress who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, recently gave an interview to The Daily Telegraph.
In the interview Carter, 65, defended herself from criticism she received last October.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the DC Amazon, last year the United Nations declared October 21 officially Wonder Woman Day and appointed the princess as the Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls. Carter attended the ceremony.
Then, like an attack from the monster Doomsday, the PC police struck. Over 40,000 people signed a petition, which was presented to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, protesting Carter’s appointment. Protestors wrote that Wonder Woman’s "current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit” is, as the college socialists say, problematic.
In the Telegraph interview, Carter responded to the controversy:
"Well, excuse me, women have breasts! Superman has got a big pouch in his crotch, so does Spider-Man and Green Lantern and their muscles are bulging — no one has a problem with that. If they have a problem with a female who is strong, they’re missing the entire point; it’s the ultimate sexism to say because she has big breasts and a costume on, that is what you think represents her and who she is. Women do have breasts and women can defend themselves and fight back. Wonder Woman is about telling the truth."
Carter also blasted people who have complained about Wonder Woman being a "white woman. “I’m half Hispanic and [Gal Gadot] is Israeli,” she said.
Gadot is the actress playing Wonder Woman in a new film that opens June 2.
