They completely lack the unique flavor of the Greco-Roman-inspired armor ensembles that <a href="http://www.core77.com/posts/67334/Breaking-Down-the-Design-of-the-Amazonian-Armor-in-Wonder-Woman">Lindy Hemming put so much thought and historical research into creating for Wonder Woman</a>. The Wonder Woman designs received acclaim from fans and costume fanatics alike. They were clearly inspired by the Amazon’s origins in the Mediterranean and were feminine but very functional. Why mess with perfection?</p> <p>Oh, right. The all-male team of directors and executive directors wanted women to fight in bikinis.</p> </blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/64a5daf0bf27696135634411c2cf56eb/tumblr_inline_ozbqfiqCut1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"/></figure><blockquote><p> Wonder Woman began filming in 2015, the year before Justice League started filming in 2016. The Amazons’  design was finalized and most of the costumes completed while Justice League was still in pre-production. That means that there were discussions about what the Amazons should wear into battle in Justice League and the epic designs from Wonder Woman were rejected in favor of leather bikinis. Let that sink in. They rejected already finished costumes to redesign and remake the armor so that more skin would be showing. <br/></p></blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d172189772b58e2d882d19dabac0fe0b/tumblr_inline_ozbqglLixP1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"/></figure></blockquote> <p>“To be absolutely clear, my issue is not with the lack of modesty. The Amazons in <a href="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C_7HrJaUQAACKYj.jpg">Wonder Woman wore sports-bra-like outfits</a> when they were not fighting and I think that is very realistic for a society that lives in a Mediterranean climate. My problem is a millennia-old military culture wearing bikinis into battle because they are women. My problem is a wise civilization that was created by the gods to protect the world thinking that soft leather is armor.</p> <p>I have a problem with a really great design being thrown out in favor of something that would excite the cis male gaze.”<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Hahahahaha</p> <p>And there goes any desire i had to see this. I’ll wait for Diana and Aquaman on DVD.</p> </blockquote> <p>If you took any time to read into it, you’d find that many of the actresses enjoyed the change, as it allowed them to show off parts of themselves that some critique as being ‘masculine,’ in a very feminine way!</p><p><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/16/justice-league-box-office-thor-ragnarok-warner-brothers-competition/"></a><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/">http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/</a><br/></p><p><i> The costume actually gave Ence to show off her muscular physique, something she doesn’t get to do all the time. “I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually,) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body,” Ence said. “So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.” </i><br/></p><p><i>Also, ‘They aren’t wearing as much armor here because the film shows them fighting in a flashback which is thousands and thousands of yrs set before the Wonder Woman solo film.’ says a Twitter user. </i></p><p>Samantha Jo, who stars as the Amazon Euboea, shared a <a href="https://twitter.com/SamWJo/status/930557775633006592">lengthy response</a> to the controversy on Twitter. She praised director Snyder and costume designer Michael Wilkinson for making her feel “empowered”.</p><p>Referring to the more streamlined costumes, she wrote: “Amazonian fighting is a little more acrobatic and larger than life requiring armour that allows for that kind of articulation in the body.”</p><p>In fact, she went further and said she was “overjoyed” at the lack of body armour, which meant she avoided the “chafing, scrapes, pinched and bruised skin” she obtained while filming Wonder Woman.</p><p>Believe it or not, male directors aren’t inherently evil or sexist! Sometimes, it’s just armor! No one is out to turn these strong women into sex objects! </p></blockquote>

Conservatives opposed the American Revolution</p> <p>- Republicanism is deeply rooted in our history, going all the way back to ancient Greco-Roman times.  The ideals of Republicanism was based off of virtue and duty of a citizen to their republic.  It was these Republican ideals that helped light the whisk to the American Revolution.  With the growing tariffs being implemented on the colonies (taxation without representation), Britain appeared as more of a corrupt persevere overseer than as a guiding hand.  The true opposition to the Revolution were the Tories.  They came from all socioeconomic structures, but a large amount of them had a financial stake in the British maintaining their thumb in the new world’s pie.  Conservatives didn’t oppose the Revolution, but it was those who relied on GB to pay their salaries that primarily did; <em>And who does that sound like? </em></p> <p>2.) Conservatives supported Slavery </p> <p>This is where the intellectual dishonesty is troubling in the Democrats.  They attempt to paint Lincoln as something he simply never was: A Democrat.  The Civil war was a war to end slavery, the secession of the south was fueled by Democrats who wanted to continue to twist the Constitution to fit their <em>liberal</em> interpretation.  That’s where these classifications come from, liberals have a loose interpretation of the constitution, hence why they’re <em>liberal.  </em>The same <em>liberal</em> interpretation that allowed them to have as their platform that POC’s were only 3/5ths of a man when compared to white men.  Conservatives held to the constitution that nothing and no one can take away a persons <em>right</em> to life, liberty, and their pursuit of happiness. </p> <p>3.) Conservatives opposed blacks and women voting </p> <p>The civil rights act of 1964 saw 82% and 80% of the Republican Senate, and House respectively, voting in favor of the right to vote for any and all.  </p> <p>This is as opposed to a 69% and 63% ‘yay,’ vote (Senate/House) for what was a <strong>Democrat controlled Congress.</strong> </p> <p>If the Republicans were so against the right to enfranchisement for women and POC, then why did they vote <strong>more in favor of it than their liberal counterparts?</strong></p> <p>4.) Conservatives opposed Child Labor Laws</p> <p>That’s insanely interesting considering that the very first mentioning of the Federal government stepping in to regulate child Labor was in 1924 by a Ohio congressmen by the name of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_Labor_Amendment">Israel Moore Foster</a>. </p> <p><em>Oh, did I mention he was a Republican…which was a part of a Republican controlled Congress…Which was ratified in all <strong>Republican </strong>states except for the Democratic South? </em></p> <p>The support for this amendment died out around 1938 when the Fair Labor Standard was passed with the tack on provision of ending child labor, though the main provision in it was to raise <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Labor_Standards_Act">minimum wage</a>. </p> <p>Kind of hard to oppose something you’re party not only introduced, but <strong>tried</strong> to pass a decade before.  Weird. </p> <p>5.) Republicans opposed the New Deal, Public Unions, Handout Programs.  </p> <p>I’m tying in the next couple of claims made by our photo creator because they all stem from the same time period in which Roosevelt dragged the US economy through the mud.  It’s no surprise that the new deal is being heralded as possibly one of the worst things ever done…<a href="http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/how-fdrs-new-deal-harmed-millions-poor-people">ever</a>. </p> <p>Because it was, it sought the end of a deep depression, an admirable task, but the myriad of Keynesian economics to help off set the failing economy only put more of a burden on the working poor than it did to uplift them.  </p> <p>The same goes for public unions, as the Detroit auto crisis has shown.  The inflated wages and pensions of the workers under the union broke the back of the auto sector.  The fact that the government bailed them out did not allow for the companies to settle their differences in Bankruptcy court.  Because of this, these companies were unable to renegotiate their contracts with UAW in order to mitigate the costs, the government had essentially paid the balance for them.  Furthermore, Public unions are the creator of every pension problem in this country, and will more than likely continue to be until that bubble bursts.  </p> <p>The problems resides in the notion that it is <strong>forced tax payer dollars paying for it.</strong>  It’s a fancy way of wealth redistribution, and everyone’s involved.  </p> <p>The Supreme Court originally passed rulings that had eventually led to the passing of several Federal standards for the employer-employee relationship.  These mandated programs were opposed because it had introduced a third party into what was originally an arms length relationship between employer and employee.  </p> <p>Conservatives opposed these things because the government shouldn’t be in the business of regulating the private sector.  This was, at the time, an over reach of the governments power.  Before the ‘new deal,’ the government wasn’t a part of the private sector, they didn’t have any regulations because they were in two different worlds.  Conservatives sought to keep it that way, not because they sought to keep in place unfair labor laws, but because it was an issue for the employer-employee relationship; and the people were <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_strikes">handling it just fine</a>. </p> <p>Republicans didn’t want to expand the power of government, true to their conservative Republican values.  Certainly not after it was the roaring 20’s were our free market economy turned our nation into a production powerhouse and conservatives believed we could do it again. </p> <p>Mandated programs will always be opposed by Conservatives, because it comes out of your wallet.  All of these mandated programs are essentially coercion with no promise of the same benefits when we’re eligible for the same services.  If a guy asked to borrow five dollars, and promised to repay you forty years from now, would you really expect to seem him in 40 years? Neither would I. </p> <p>6.) Conservatives opposed the Affordable Care Act. </p> <p>Remember that this upcoming election when the glitz and glamour of Democrats can’t change what’s on the inside of an envelope holding your policy termination letter, or the broken website, or the hundreds of dollars of premiums, or the long emergency room lines, or your old doctor/hospital not covered under your plan.  </p> <p>Remember, that Conservatives tried to keep your money in your pocket, as they always have and always will.  </p> <p><img alt="image" src="http://cdn.gifbay.com/2013/05/colbert_mic_drop-52522.gif"/></p> </blockquote>
