Disney to remove feminist iconography from toy line up?


“Disney is already well on its way to wiping out the ‘slave’ outfit from any future products period. You will NOT see [any] future merchandising featuring the slave outfit ever again …. [Artists] can’t even draw Leia in a sexy pose at Marvel, let alone in that outfit … We also had a 3-D [Slave Leia] statue killed at a major manufacturer because there will no longer be any [Slave Leia] merchandise.” —blastr

If this is true, it’s a sad reminder that Disney doesn’t give a fuck about you or your childhood.  I remember seeing Leia in that outfit and being shown that sexy girls can get shit done too, and to not let my guard down around my slaves, least they rise up and choke me with their own chains.
