"'Think thin' is not a slogan we need associated with a fierce warrior," the Mary Sue states.
Ahead of Wonder Woman's release in theaters next month, the superhero film has entered into a promotional partnership with thinkThin, maker of diet products. Unsurprisingly, people see some problems with the first major female-led superhero film being tied to weight-loss snacks.
Wonder Woman should be an "opportunity to ... celebrate the female form not as a subject of desire but a source of power," Salon argues. And the Daily Dot says linking Wonder Woman to thinkThin focuses attention on her appearance instead of her actions, doing a disservice to a "feminist icon."
