The Humiliation of Batgirl

In the spirit of continuing the much-needed Outrage Week Awareness Month in the Comic-blogosphere, I present the marginalization and humiliation that the always kick-ass Barbara Gordon Batgirl had to endure in the 1960's just to compete with the boys.

As if the fanboy drool-inducing costumes of female Super-heroes aren't bad enough, even Batgirl's Bat-cycle has to have dainty lace and fringe on it.

It is a well-established fact that Batgirl had to beat up twice the thugs to be considered half the vigilante among her male peers.

  1. If I remember correctly, in the TV show she was only ever allowed to kick villains, never punch them. It was kinda weird.

    But yeah, that frill is just insane, even by the camp standards of the show.
