23 Female Cartoonists On Drawing Their Bodies

I do wonder just how much I contribute to this problem of female objectification. As a kid growing up, it often seemed that comics and fanart were intended for this, that the grossly misproportioned figures and hyper-idealized forms were something to indulge in. Judging from some of your favorites and collections, I'd still say this is so.

The irony is that this also feels like release, the fantasy that permits, enables what would otherwise be forbidden, that deviates. That this is all fiction, with little expectation of return or reprisal save for your commentary, is liberating. And if ever the reality mirrors the art, then lucky us.

Even so, I reserve quite a bit, as I see many examples here where things go too far. I have cubic yards of saucy stuff I've drawn for myself, and will never share, because it just seems irredemptive. If there are going to be displays here, at least permit me to place them in some greater context, the flavor rather than the feature.
