The Hawkeye Initiative

The Hawkeye Initiative is a place to draw attention to ridiculously sexist comic book character drawings by replacing a female in a typical superhero pose with the character Hawkeye. We are used to seeing women drawn as contortionists as they attempt to show butt and boobs at the same time, but when a male character does it, you see how comically painful it is. The project was inspired by a blog post from yesterday. Yes, this tumblr blog only went up Sunday, and it already has tons of submissions. As these are female drawings from comic books, they may be NSFW. Link -via Metafilter

I love this idea. I'm no friend of the "feminist" movement, but comic book cheesecake (frankly most fantasy cheesecake) is obnoxious, and seemingly omnipresent.
