Sexual Politics and the Single Superheroine

In light of this morning's post on the new Wonder Woman movie, my esteemed colleague and calendar pimp Paul Friswold sent me over to this wonderful site, I'm guessing the sort of stuff its creators have collected will not be in the new movie, since we live in more enlightened times. As the Wired review says:
Men get what's coming to them. Wonder Woman emasculates Trevor repeatedly, calling him "a pathetic lightweight," and teaches a little girl a thrust attack so she can take apart boys who won't let her play swords with them. It's all so much beautiful in-joking. Castration comes in many flavors in Wonder Woman, and they all taste very cool indeed.
