i crawled out from under my rock to figure out what these bratz dolls were... OMG! NOW you're telling me there is a MOVIE?!?!?!

I wish there wasn't. Yes, there is a movie and from what I can tell it's all about Bratz power to take down another girl. Wonderful.

whywhywhywhywhy does a culture that pretends to be so evolved continue to embrace rubbish like this?!?!?

i took a class a few years back, gender stererotypes/racism/prejudice. my final paper was an examination of popular television programming for children - and the dangerous gender stereotypes messages they produced. it. blew. my. mind.

now i have a son, and while he is only two, i worry about what he is internalizing already. i'm very careful about what we read and what he sees, but it is still difficult. i wonder how i'm supposed to raise this little guy to not only respect women, but to instill in him a deeper understanding of his own role in empowering women.

my friend that i said went to the anti-porn conference suggested i read "refusing to be a man" by dworkin's partner, john stoltenberg. thanks for reminding me. i need to go find that today.

I saw the poster the other day. The one positive thing Bratz *do* have going for them is that there's some racial diversity going on amongst the dolls. The girls they've cast, though, are about a dozen shades lighter.
