Off Topic (but only a little)

From a list of what defines today’s broad (or, “kick-ass woman”), on PopMatters:

Today’s broad:

• Would never be caught speaking the words “that’s hot.”

• Doesn’t own any pairs of Manolo Blahniks…

Is not the librarian with glasses and her hair in a bun who then tosses her glasses and shakes out her hair to lure a man. She’s the librarian. Period.

    Unfortunately still defined by the relationship to the male, even if negative

    Thanks for the link to this article. For a few years now I have been baffled by the raunch culture, the ‘girls gone wild’ cult – they just don’t get it. Kick-ass women, perhaps, are those who know who they are, who have a great deal of self-confidence, but who don’t have to compare themselves to other women or step on anyone else in order to claim their place. They just gloriously are who they are. Period.
