Fun With Keyword Searches
Here's a list of the keyword searches that led people to my blog this afternoon. I always find this fascinating, as most of the keywords are for superheroine porn/misogyny. Now look, I'm not banging the drum and saying,"this is wrooooong! oh God, the world is ending! someone typed superheroine boob!" But I do find it interesting.
The first keyword search phrase is,
This phrase was typed in twice in Google. Does the user mean, superheroines punching things? Or, which I kind of think is more likely (based, if nothing else, on the rest of the keywords), superheroines being punched?
The next I'm going to group together, as they are related.
"supergirl minor sexy"
I know there has been a lot of head-scratching recently about that DC Direct f**k-doll Supergirl mini-statue. "Who would buy something that exploitative?" Well, at least we have two customers right here.
"power girl raped"
That's pretty ugly, isn't it? And yet the keyword "rape" in association with superheroines are quite popular -- they are listed in the recent keyword searches for my blog almost every day.
"wonder woman boob"
Now, this is fairly innocuous. It's almost rather quaint.
This is another popular one. There is a whole cottage industry of soft-core porn sites dedicated to this topic. In fact, if you do a Google search on "superheroine," my blog comes up like third or fourth -- the first handful of results are always porn.
There are two search terms left for today --
Actually, I get the search phrase "occasional superheroine" a lot, and that actually makes me feel kinda good.
Then I'll get a search term like "Nancy Pelosi topless" and that kind of spoils things.
So what, if anything, can we infer out of this list of keyword searches?
One thing that's pretty clear to me is,
There are a lot of people out there that want to see superheroines raped.
This is based on reading these keyword searches on my blog stat meter regularly.
Let me say that again.
There is a fair number of people out there that want to see superheroines raped, humiliated, abused, beaten, punched, whipped, burned, and shot.
There is a market for it.
And there are also lots of people who want to see Power Girl with her top off. And you know, that's ok.
This isn't a call for censorship, ratings, finger-pointing, anything. This is a call to nothing, I'm just observing.
