Superhero comics often put heroines in ridiculous poses that seem almost impossible - even for the most super of heroes. 

How to combat this injustice? The Hawkeye Initiative. The Tumblr puts the Avenger Hawkeye into all of those near-impossible contortions to demonstrate just how ludicrous it would be if male heroes had to strike the same pose. (See Camille Kaze's excellent example above.)
