Webcomic: The Adventures of Gyno-Star
The Adventures of Gyno-Star is a superhero parody webcomic featuring a feminist protagonist whose tagline is "Fighting the forces of evil and male chauvinism."Gyno-Star boasts super-strength, a "Gyno sense" which alerts her when women are being discriminated against, and the power to make men feel the pain of childbirth.

- Arch-Enemy: Vlad Deferens and The Stay-at-Home Mommy
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: A shadowy conspiracy of corporate executives hire a subcontractor to "eliminate" Gyno-Star.

- Hypocritical Humor: a very large amount of the comic's humor comes from hypocritical behavior by Gyno-Star or Little Sappho.

- Psycho Sidekick: Little Sappho is a lot more of a political extremist than Gyno-Star, and is willing to do certain things that go against the main character's moral code.
- Shock Collar: Vlad Deferens puts a shock collar on Gyno-Star in an attempt to make her compliant and obedient.
- Stealth Parody/Poe's Law: At first glance it looks like a legitimate "radfem" wish fulfilment/social justice webcomic.
- Straw Character: The Glibertarian is a straw Libertarian created in a laboratory to spread pro-corporate ideology.
- The Cape: Gyno-Star embodies the upright superhero who abides by a strict code and moral authority (although more often she fails to live up to her own high standards).
