    So it's not that "funny" - it's quite logical.

You put forth a dichotomy between (a) the people who are doing things to "cement" their power and (b) the people who want greater representation, but you're neglecting to admit that the latter parties are just as much involved in ego-strengthening and power politics.

    I'd add that I think certain of the latter parties have more power than you say they do. Some people use the power judiciously, and some don't, but nobody is intrinsically ennobled just because their side is the more marginalized.
    I agree People wanting what they want to see in comics or any entertainment medium is just what it is. The customer making demands of the creator. No less or more righteous on either side.

    ... its a generalization. Which is always good for trying to prove some small aspect about an entire demographic. In comics, yeah, more men read them so more gals are going to be sexualized in them. Have you watched any TV? Supernatural is probably a 99% female viewership and they cut no corners in making as much beekcake as possible appear on the screen. So I am not going to take this post as "explained".

    I did miss this ....

    If this is truly the case then it would seem that the objectification of any gender/sexual orientation should be deemed offensive if one is. Or is is just a perception publishers think is the case?

    I probably did then. I didn't spend much time in the DC forum.

    Well, the point I was making there was that the OP was looking for effeminate and cross dressing men. And men who pose sexually in the same manner that women do. A lot of people would think of that as a stereotype and try to avoid it. I'm not saying you can't do it convincingly in a comic, but how likely is it in time where people are more sensitive about not just having representation but how that representation is portrayed.


    Finding sexy men in comics isn't that hard, but the OP has a specific criteria that's outside what Marvel/DC superheroes usually deal with.

    Until female readership of comics increases greatly, you won't be seeing any great change on that front.

    I meant specifically the effeminate men that the OP was looking for. I don't think most women are into that in a sexual way.

    Does the OP really want examples of effeminate men (which I agree almost everyone is not looking for) or is he looking for examples of men in sexual poses (i.e. a male character in a Speedo)?

    Well, in a thread that was closed, he asked for effeminate men. In this one he's asked for men bending over or arching their backs the way women do.

    Okay. I reread this thread (I forgot it was an old one only resurrected recently). What I'm trying to figure out here is if the OP is 1) trying to make a point regarding the double standard regarding the way attractive women and men are portrayed in comics (which is undeniable due to the large number of heterosexual male readers), 2) looking for pictures for his own sexual gratification, or 3) both 1 and 2?

    I think it's a little bit of both. That he thinks there's an unfair double standard because he can't find what he's personally turned on by in mainstream comics without turning to porn...

    Well, the market is what it is. It's not really a matter of unfairness but a lack of demand, IMO.

    Thing is, there is a market for what he wants, not where he insists on looking. If you limit your self to just Marvel/DC superheroes, the range of sexuality presented is only going to cover so much.

    Definitely agree with you there, ed. I was only referring to the Big Two.
