UN Wants to Ban Wonder Woman – Not Feminist Enough

Is the UN trying to ban Wonder Woman because she isn’t liberal or feminist enough?

Wonder Woman is under attack!

The super woman with amazing powers may not be able to use her strength and sex appeal to stop the UN. In fact, that may be exactly what her is at the root of her quick downfall.

The United Nations is actually set to ban Wonder Woman. As she was given the title of special Ambassador in recent months, the decision has come under attack as the imaginary character is now “too sexy” to be a role model for women.

White, strong, and sexy. Apparently, these features are frowned upon even for a comic book character. Even though the position as a UN ambassador was supposed to symbolize fighting violence and stereotypes on women, apparently the UN has done just that.


Not everyone was happy about her original appointment. More than 44,000 people signed a petition that claimed to have been started by “concerned United Nations staff members” which called on the UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, to appoint a non-fictional woman to the role. — Ban Wonder Woman! Ban Wonder Woman! 

“It is alarming that the United Nations would consider using a character with an overtly sexualised image at a time when the headline news in United States and the world is the objectification of women and girls,” the petition’s authors wrote.

But now the UN has confirmed Wonder Woman’s time as an honorary ambassador will end this week. “From the UN’s side, there was no plan for it to be much longer than this,” said Jeffrey Brez, the UN’s chief of NGO relations and advocacy.

Many people feel that the appearance of Wonder Woman was “culturally insensitive” to cultures around the world.

Although, it could be argued that as an American Comic book character created by an American company (DC and Marvel) it seems that this is more of an attack on Americanism.

Sure, Wonder Woman is clearly dressed in a sexualized manner. However, wrapped in American flag type regalia and costume, the character was originally meant to symbolize freedom and the strength of a woman — could this be why the want to ban Wonder Woman?

Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have been “extremely pleased” with the partnership’s role in raising awareness of the empowerment of women and girls, a spokeswoman said.

“Wonder Woman stands for peace, justice and equality, and for 75 years she has been a motivating force for many and will continue to be long after the conclusion of her UN honorary ambassadorship.”

This falls in line with a sweeping, over-the-top liberalism that is sweeping the entire planet. When a comic book character who symbolizes things like equality and justice comes under attack and starts to be torn down, the very idea of freedom of speech, individual choice, and of course equality itself ends up coming under attack.

For now, Wonder Woman will no longer be looked at as a role model for young women. Maybe they can choose a woman singer or star who uses near porno-graphic and even more offensive, sexalized images and language, like Beyonce to replace her!
