Except for Gamora is a Tumblr blog created by Brett White, a CBR assistant editor in order to create awareness for the lack of the female character Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise. It was made in spirit of ...But Not Black Widow blog.

"When "Guardians of the Galaxy" opened last year, I got proactive and started Except For Gamora, because I knew she would be underrepresented even though the Guardians only have five members in the cast. One could give licensors the benefit of a doubt and assume they thought that six Avengers on one tiny notepad would be too crowded. That doesn't excuse their decision to always remove Black Widow before any of the male characters, but whatever. There are only five Guardians. Every licensor could fit five Avengers on everything, they should be able to fit five Guardians on everything. One of them's even raccoon-sized, so he takes up less space! I was not surprised to learn that licensors could always find room for Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot and Drax, but still excluded Gamora on t-shirts and all the backpacks."[1]
