    A girl who acts like a girl.

    There is so much genuine hand-wringing about role models for young girls.  Hell, some days my hands feel like they’ve wrung off. And this is important. If we just accept the way women are depicted in music videos and little girls are encouraged to wear Playboy logos and be air-brushed and buy make-up then it [read more]
