In Search of the Happiness Max

drawnblog:

About 12 years ago for a class project in art school I argued that sexism was not inherently embedded in the female nude in art (or images of women, period, as argued by the hardcore feminists there), but coded in the poses. Wish I’d thought of the following to make my point: The Hawkeye Initiative exposes what we’re so used to seeing that we don’t notice any more. It shows the ludicrous and the sexploitative in comics by replacing heroines with the buff Hawkeye character in the same pose—-drawn by whoever wants to participate, with some pretty hilarious results.
