Here's a blast from The Vibe, Sleaze (Link now dead - Ed), an Entertainment News website.
SHOCKING NEWS - SUPERHEROS ARE SEXIST: Cartoon favourites BUGS BUNNY, DAFFY DUCK, SPIDERMAN, TWEETY PIE and the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES have been branded sexist by two American psychologists. CYNTHIA SPICHER and MARY HUDAK based their findings on 118 hours of study. They claim male cartoon characters come across as powerful or smart while females are usually typecast as damsels in distress or bathing beauties. Yeah, no sh**. Can we study Hollywood next?
