Avidchick is channeling her inner Batgirl babe. And girl looks damn fine. Her hero costume is beyond fresh thanks to a fun imagination and Target's toy department. I'm digging all of her accessories — a gold belt, cape, and mask are essential elements to getting her look right. Amazing!
Newsflash: Batman was not only a degrading husband, but a sexist employer to boot. In the following PSA for the Federal Equal Pay Law, Batgirl argues that she's underpaid and deserves to earn the same wages as Robin. Although Batgirl's timing is a bit manipulative — a ticking bomb is about to blow Batman a new one and she's his only hope for escape — girlfriend's request is warranted. But the big boss thinks she's joking. To which, I say, let the Batdouche blow.
While everyone has been breathlessly awaiting the arrival of Spider-Man 3 this Friday, I came across an old commercial from 1974 for the Federal Equal Pay Law featuring Yvonne Craig as Batgirl.
In the 30-second spot, Batgirl comes across Batman and Robin all tied up, yet before she helps them, she speaks her mind about getting paid the same as Robin since they do the same labor. I think this ad is super cool, and unfortunately it's something I just don't think would air on TV today.
