Episode 13 - Objectification Versus Empowerment

After a brief hiatus due to a medical issue (we're fine, promise!) Missy and Merri are back to share their thoughts on Bayonetta and the women of Kill La Kill as empowering or objectified, as well as what those terms really mean. Other topics include Age of Ultron, the Supergirl trailer, why using gross slurs to show your character is evil reflects poorly on your writing, and Marvel Babiez (we'll be waiting for our checks, Marvel).
