Feminism Fridays: Who Else Wants to Be Best Friends with Mo’ne Davis?


At this point we all know who Mo’ne Davis is, and if you don’t … well then shame on you. Mo’ne Davis is only the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series in its 86-year history. She is the first girl to ever throw a shutout in the LLWS. She is also not only the first girl from the LLWS to appear on Sports Illustrated’s national cover but the first LLWS player in general to ever grace the cover. Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old female pitcher extraordinaire, is a badass chick who inspires people from all walks of life, in the sports world and beyond.

Arguments have been made that Davis is just a kid, and that we should treat her as such and should not project our own hopes for the future of baseball and women’s roles in sports onto her. I agree with these statements. Davis is 13 years old, and she deserves to be praised for her actions but also left to figure out what she wants to do with her future without being pressured by the rest of us. That being said, however, I also believe that Davis is an incredible role model for not just girls her own age but for those of us who are already working and existing in the “adult world.” 



Davis is one of those rare people who is doing what she wants, simply because she wants to. I’m sure there were people who told her along the way that she couldn’t throw overhand, couldn’t play with the boys, wasn’t good enough to stand on the mound. There are always people rooting against us. Davis, though, did all those things anyway. She even played offense during one game.

Whether or not she goes on to play baseball in high school or college, or whether or not she ends up becoming the first woman in Major League Baseball, Davis has already done more than enough to be a symbol to women everywhere. She played with the boys, and she kicked some serious ass doing it.

Why is Gamora missing from Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise?

Exit polls indicate 44 percent of GotG’s opening-week audience were women, yet Disney/Marvel still seems unaware or unconvinced that it can profit from this half of their audience. At San Diego Comic-Con last month, women’s T-shirts for Marvel’s upcoming Agent Carter TV series sold out in a day, with the bemused attendants saying that they hadn’t expected this kind of interest. This is after years of fans clamoring for a female-led superhero movie from anyone.

Fans have been asking, well… where’s Gamora?

When companies are so sexist they don’t even want to accept women to make a profit you know society is very fucked up 

Yeah except this isn’t true. There’s plenty of merch with Gamora.
She has a figure http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HMVA7903A#.U-OSust0zIU

A bobblehead http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=FU3795#.U-OS5st0zIU

Also custom-printed t-shirts http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/t-shirt/guardians-of-the-galaxy-gamora/64350/

You can bitch and moan about sexism all you want but don’t fucking lie.

It’s not lying (or bitching and moaning for that matter). Also, you can’t link to a site that is selling unofficial merch and say that it counts as the official sources not leaving out a character. If I went and made 50 Gamora designs, it wouldn’t mean that Marvel had made them, it would mean that I, a fan, had made them. Those action figures you linked are only available in a few select stores, not in every store like everyone else is. I mean look at this shirt; it has five boxes. There are five Guardians. Strangely, they chose not to include Gamora on the entire shirt. Why is that?

She’s not on the display stands either, when they made room for 4 out of 5 guardians. They could have gone with 3 and left out a guy, but they made it work, leaving out the only female member on the team. Why her again?

There’s two sides on this thing and both sides have all 4 Guardians. If it’s a space/size issue, why not have Gamora/Nebula/Ronan/Yondue on the other side? At least she would be included!

Official mugs without Gamora as well:

I mean come on - According to Marvel, the other four members of the Guardians are available at Toys “R” Us online and in stores while Gamora (along with Nebula) will only be available at specialty stores. Seriously. And you think it’s just ‘bitching and moaning’ ? Here are several pictures where it’s clear that Gamora is the only member of the team that is ‘optional’. They aren’t regularly leaving out Drax and swapping it in for Gamora/Rocket/Groot/Peter, or leaving out Groot and Rocket or any other combination. This is not just whining, this is a big deal. Women already have to be happy with just having ONE person of their gender being on a team out of FIVE characters, and you think we’re asking too much for that ONE woman to be included in the merchandise?
