First of all, every single incarnation DC has put out in animation has had her either like this OR as a submissive sex kitten or violent sociopath (alternate universes). Second, what phallic objects? The sword and shield? I hate to break it to him but the pointy-blade-thingy-going-into-the-other-guy techology did not really evolve from its fundamental use until basically the 20th century, and even then can you name a single modern military that DOESN'T train its soldiers in bladed weaponry? And I am so glad he was able to gleen this terrific insight into the character from the literal 2 seconds of film. Puh-lease.
