If you haven’t heard of Kate Beaton’s Strong Female Characters, then 1) where have you been for the last three years, poor soul? 2) please, catch up immediately (links below)!

Obviously, those two strips are the most relevant to BABD, as Georgia O’Queefe and Queen Elizatits demonstrate how skimpy outfits are so totally acceptable as long as you can argue they’re part of your cultural heritage and how you never need to worry about getting hurt, cause sexy distraction is the best protection.

One question remains… why is this supposed to be a parody? Clearly, that’s how writing empowered feminist (and totally not contrived) characters works! Best inspiration ever.

And always remember, kids:
