Black History Month, Chelsea, and College: <p>Black history month black artists day 6: Going a bit modern today with American actor, comedian, and filmmaker Jordan Peele.</p> <p>Peele was born in 1979 and raised by a single mother on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He attended Sarah Lawrence College for two years before dropping out to form a comedy duo with his roommate Rebecca Drysdale. In the early 2000’s he was cast as a regular in MADtv, where he first met fellow comedian Keegan Michael Key and the two were soon cast alongside each other for most sketches due to their great comedic chemistry, eventually leading to their own spinoff series as comedy duo Key &amp; Peele. The series had great success from 2012 to 2015, and the duo also coproduced the critically praised film “Keanu” in 2016.</p> <p>In February 2017, Peele had a career breakthrough with his solo directorial debut, the horror film “Get Out”, which earned enormous critical acclaim and was a box office success. It is considered one of the most profitable films of all time, grossing over $250 million next to a budget of $4.5 million. The film also received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Director, Best Picture, and Best Original Screenplay. Peele became the third person (after Warren Beatty and James L. Brooks) to receive those three nominations for a debut film, and the first black filmmaker to receive them for any one film. Peele also won the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award at the 2017 Gotham Independent Fim Awards, and a BAFTA nomination for Best Original Screenplay.</p> <p>Peele has been married to Chelsea Perretti, actress of Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame, since 2016 and the two recently welcomed a son, Beaumont Gino Peele.</p> <p><a href="https://tmblr.co/mYLcpdBmia5YP2ZY7ohOuxA">@markhamillz</a></p>

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>
