Harley Quinn, regardless of what she is wearing, is an empowering character especially for young girls (even despite her tumultuous storyline). They see a women capable of antagonizing powerful superheroes and she is able to do it while still looking good
A very excellent point.
Hot and fierce... what else can you ask for? :-)
Complexity of the character should not be an excuse for censorship.
If you watch to the end, you'll see that I in no way was calling for any legal action to be taken. People can cosplay as whoever they want. I don't dispute that but as they have that right, I also have the right to an opinion on the matter (so long as I'm not a complete dick about it).
You have the right to an opinion I just think that putting labels is a slippery-slope to censorship.
I clicked Unsure, so it looks like both me and Dee Dee are seriously outnumbered here. :/
Of course its inappropriate for children!
Inappropriate for children? Yes because of the way she is portrayed dressing in most cosplays but not because of the complexity of the character.
She has more than one costume, you realise that right? The one she has now is over sexual. She has a full on costume in her original making if you even know that she was created before 2016.
It's good for children to learn about this sort of thing at a young age because it will stic with them as they grow older. They will learn about problems like this better now than later when it could happen to them.
