Update: Girls Don't Need Heroes

Another win this week - the Disney Store have withdrawn Marvel's offensive "I need a hero" teeshirt for girls after receiving a stampede of negative feedback on it.

I had a few Hand Mirror readers send me form responses to emails they had sent directly to Marvel after the post earlier in the week, despairing of change.

Great to be reminded that companies that exist to make profit don't like negative feedback on producing sexist crap.

Happy Sunday.

I really can't fathom how they thought in this day and age that there wouldn't be a whole ton of negative feedback on this... or were they sticking to the "any publicity is good publicity" school of thought?
