Femtroopers have their day in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Culture Blog.

  1. I’m sorry. I even know one of the women pictured there. But I HATE the whole concept of Femtroopers.

    I know that many defend it as women taking it over by making their own “statement.” I see it as women making themselves into objects.

    My own opinion, though.

  2. They’re better than the slave Leias when it comes to objectification, IMO. Maybe because it’s still something of a novelty.

    We’ve got at least one instance of a canon female stormtrooper in an upcoming issue of the Legacy comic, so we might be seeing a more standard interpretation (at least, without the midrifs) by C4.
