And, just like that, the princess stage is over

Now it’s Wonder Woman.

Even though there’s the whole weird Cold-War-ish plot (in which, ironically, the forces of the US government seem to be engaging in exactly the kind of propaganda & sneakiness that they claim to be opposing) and of course the whole female-objectification-with-overtones-of-bondage stuff going on in that show, still, I’m actually really pleased with Sophie watching Wonder Woman. Soph is so cute when she herself spins around, pretending to transform into her most powerful version. She likes to toss her lasso, now, and rope me in. She’s proud that Wonder Woman is a force for good. Smart and strong and helping the police: that’s how Sophie sees Wonder Woman. And, Sophie proclaims, she herself IS Wonder Woman.
