It could be that I’m missing the point. All in good fun, right? I’ve been accused of a lack of sense of humor before. And of being too rigid. After all, reading (much less writing) isn’t everyone’s idea of fun. Not to mention that I, unlike many other American women, refuse to watch what a friend called “Angry Housewives” (heeheehee), engage in shopping (beyond necessary) and hair salon gossip sessions, or read chick lit. (Yes, I do subscribe to blogs maintained by chick lit writers, but only to learn about publishing and marketing. The genre itself is just not interesting to me.)
Anyway, I just can’t help wondering whether women couldn’t have found a better activity. I’ve read that modern feminism only means we have more and better choices. We don’t have to be or do anything we don’t want.
So I guess this means we’re confident that men will be able to judge us on our merits alone, that our sons will respect our authority no matter what we choose for fun. Or could it be that the estrogenized version of BattleBots means women no longer care what men (or anyone else) think?
