My Eyes Are Up Here

 Interestingly enough this same phrase showed up twice this month in comics.  I don’t have much to say about the application of the phrase itself.  In the one case Charlotte Rivers is saying it to a man she is trying to seduce which makes little sense.  In the other case Cassandra is saying it to Tim when he quite clearly wasn’t looking at her breasts (in which case if it were me I would be prone to apologize.)  What I really think is worth saying about this though is that it has more or less achieved the status of a cliché.  A few months ago when the female fans of comics were trying to make it known that there should be more females among the creative teams at DC and for comics in general, this is a case of what they were talking about (or at least this is what I was talking about.)  Having only male writers means that women are often written without any real personality, rather just exemplifying clichéd stereotypes.  I think they can do better.
