Marketing Superheroes from a Feminist Perspective

I came here from out of the weeds of Tumblr, looking for a new platform to share my thoughts and gain a new perspective on awesome lady superheroes and how they appear in marketing.

I wasn’t surprised to see an angry dude shouting at a screen when I was clicking through my interests in profile setup. MRA’s, amirite?

But then why the hell was there the same dude shouting at the screen for the “Women” interest?

WOMEN. Amirite?

It’s interesting how one use of the icon can make perfect sense, and a slight deviation comes off as giving the exact opposite message. I’m curious if these icons are curated in the same manner as the rest of Medium’s content?

Either way, it’s an inauspicious start for a feminist blogger on the platform.
