It's time to break down what forms of artistic expression are acceptable for the group and what types of artwork will not qualify for the gallery.

One thing that needs to be addressed is the sexualized artwork of women being submitted.

Unfortunately, for artists that submit these pieces, their art will be either removed from the gallery or declined altogether.

Let's take a look at the group description (which is very visible and hard to miss on our front-page): "This group is dedicated to admiring and promoting physically strong, powerful, competent individuals of the female variety. This group praises female athleticism, female physical prowess and competence and provides a safe-place for gender discussion, as well as an area to build interests in female empowerment."

In other words, images of women with extremely, dis-proportioned breasts that look painful to carry will be declined. Images of women that look like they've been based off of Penthouse, Hustler or Brazzers, whether in proportions or posturing, will be declined.

It's counter-active to feature and include imagery of real-life women that showcase raw and casual candids of them being active and athletic as "promoting physically strong, powerful [women]" and to "praise female athleticism..." when images that more or less praise the fetishization of specific female body parts or unrealistic, ultra-sexualized interpretations of female strength, are also being shown.

If you're artwork is declined or you find, has been removed, it's most likely because it comes across as exploitative and pornographic than an empowering demonstration of "female physical prowess."

You may disagree with this viewpoint, and that's perfectly fine. But as long as you have an interest in submitting artwork into this group with the desire for it to be accepted, then you will have to follow group policy. No exceptions.

My husband e-mailed this image to me, and I thought the group might get a kick out of it: What if the male Avengers posed like the female one?
