Wonder Woman Armpit Scenes Stir Outrage Among Social Justice Warriors. Don't Worry We Added It Back!

While the previous trailers for DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman film have been met with a lot of praise, the latest trailer has caused some controversy amongst certain viewers on the net. Their problem is with Wonder Woman’s shaven armpits. That’s right, the internet is making a big noise about the Wonder Woman armpit scenes. But don’t worry, we’ve added her armpit hair back just for you!

At around the 1.40 mark of the trailer, actress Gal Gadot raises her arms to expose her hairless armpits (which some believe have been digitally bleached in postproduction). This caused quite a stir as many people believe that an Amazonian princess wouldn’t shave her armpits at all.

“Is this seriously still happening in 2017,” cried Slate Magazine.
“Do better!” said Revelist.
“[Wonder Woman] proves that women—even those who are superheroes—don’t have to cater to beauty standards that are meant to make them more attractive to men,” shouted Refinery29.

However, fans have noted that Wonder Woman has never had armpit hair in the comic books. Secondly, the film is also set during World War 1, a period where women started shaving their armpits. To be honest, this whole thing is a big fuss over nothing.

    To be fair, the ancient world did have hair removal techniques. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans all practiced body hair removal

  2. Although I agree with lessening the sexualization in the culture (of both sexes) I don’t think that having or not having armpit hair mean anything. It’s a personal preference and shouldn’t be taken in consideration when talking about gender equality and so. There are many men shaving their armpits for hygiene reasons and we’re not calling them feminine so what’s the deal

  3. So let me get this straight…

    People are upset because a FICTIONAL SUPERHERO is not realistic enough? Okay then.

    This is as funny as the Star Trek fans who say how Trek is REAL science fiction because it uses REAL SCIENCE and then go on to a long winded explanation of WARP DRIVE TECHNOLOGY to back up their argument.

    • I agree with the first part, disagree with the second. ICYMI real world scientists turned warp drive technology from science-fiction into science-fact by using our real worlds math and physics.

  4. ‘waaah women shouldn’t make themselves look good for men’

    What about if they’re doing it because they want to look good for themselves? Or find hair uncomfortable?

    Are women no longer given a choice because SJWs say they should be behaving/doing things a certain way? That sounds like i-ron-y.

  5. I’m kind of shocked by the number of men going “shrug” in the comments. It’s almost like the overly picky dudes in movies are fictional or something. Or like there are billions of women around the world who don’t shave and men who are perfectly willing to sleep with them. Bananas!

  6. I’m sorry, but hairy armpits on women does not make them look stronger or embrace feminism. Instead, it makes you look lazy and gross, and starving for attention. But that’s just me, a mom of 3. I know nothing.

  7. I think lots of the SJW especially the very vocal ones, like comunist, they are just seeking legislative power not so much equality, when empires get weak communist and the extreme left tends to seep in and take over.

  8. Pretty damn sure the previous iterations of WW were also sans pit hair.

    Pretty damn sure Linda Carter was without pit hair.

    Even the animated one with Xena doing her voice…

    (I’m also willing to bet half of these people also think Iron Fist was miscast with a white dude as the lead….)

  9. OMG, the world will come to a massive end because some actress shaved her armpits. Consider this the artists impression that displays WW’s freedom of choice. Much like Superman has the freedom of choice to be clean shaven or have a beard.

  10. Can women from Themyscira even grow hair there? Maybe they genetically are hairless there. Not all people grow hair exactly in the same places, e.g. beards, chest, back, etc.

    I doubt any of us are experts on Themyscirian genetics.
