Mass Appeal Magazine: Girls, Girls, Girls

08 April 2008, 14.39 | Posted in Books | No comments »

I’m in one of the moods in which Mass Appeal magazine, which should know better, calling young women “girls” gets me very irritated. In terms of how anti-woman it is on a scale of one-to-ten, ten being killing baby girls, I’d put calling 18-year old females girls at a .0003, but like I said, one of those moods. (Hypocrisy disclosure: If I researched back through my own posts here, it would probably take me all of five minutes to discover I’ve done the exact same thing.)

p.s. I’ve been traveling (and Samia’s on vacation!!) thus the light posting. I was tempted to photograph my outfit yesterday and have that constitute a post, but I haven’t yet reached that level of desperation.

HarajukuPerf Gwen Stef Perfume Launch

Gwen has forever-and-a-day-love status for me because of her days as frontwoman for No Doubt, not to mention the existence of the heartbreak classic “Don’t Speak.” I still to this day like/admire her, but I’ve always thought the whole Harajuko Girls thing was kind of dumb. When Margaret Cho went off on her about it and described the concept as “a minstrel show,” I figured Gwen would give it a rest, but nope, she kept it ride or die and as you can see in the image above, the bottles of perfume are even modeled after them.

Oh well, make that $$$ Gwen.

Feel like a little flash-back Friday? Here’s the video classic “Don’t Speak” (So please stop explaining!)
