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

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?

Also, from the Disney Store (aka the company that owns and licenses Guardians of the Galaxy).

there’s also another t shirt that’s been at the outlets but for some reason isn’t on the website that has Peter, Rocket, Drax & Groot on it, but not Gamora.

They even have Disney Infinity characters for all the guardians but Gamora.

Does anyone have that panel from the original run of Young Justice where Arrowette’s mum is arguing with merchandisers about ensuring her daughter’s action figure not being limited edition chase figure? Because I really want it as a reaction pic for shitty depressing stuff like this?

Gamora actually will be a Disney Infinity 2.0 character and she’ll be one of the standard GotG playset figures, but all of the other points still stand

Me at parties

Stop hating yourself. Try going one day without saying anything bad about yourself. Try complimenting yourself. Do it again. Buy yourself dinner. Put soft things against your skin. Listen to your favorite songs. Eat ice cream. Eat ice cream naked. You have to spend the rest of your life with you. You’re all you’ve got. Be kind, start loving yourself.

do you know why feminism has a horrible image?

i’ll let you in on a secret here, it’s because people hate women

blackqualad:

why are people so worried about if feminism hates men and not worried about how men virulently and violently hate women and commit acts of violence against them

Sometimes I really don’t feel like existing like not in a suicidal way but I just wish there was a way of pausing life so that I could sleep for a few weeks and figure some stuff out and then not have to feel guilty for missing loads of stuff because really no time had passed at all

Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan on the sex scene [in Kill Your Darlings] that made headlines +

“There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.”
