Every Thursday on my urban fantasy blog, Fangs for the Fantasy, which I write with Paul, AKA Sparky, who is always wrong, we do cover snark. We have examined thinks like:
- The Sideways View: T&A for Everyone
- Oh the Thigh Muscles
- Disembodied Women
- Who Needs Clothing to be a Bad Ass?
- More Tattoos Less Clothes
I recently came across a post by author Jim C. Hines, in which he takes the time to point out the ridiculousness of this trend, by reproducing some of the stances that are common in urban fantasy. I love it when men do this, because it helps to highlight the sexism in these images. No one would ever dream of posing a male in the positions that are commonplace for women on book covers.
You can see the rest of the images here.
