Why Every Guy Should Buy Their Girlfriend Wii Fit and Feminist Subversion?

I’ve been really surprised to find the extent that the vloggers of the world have embraced Wii Fit as a subject of discussion. The topics range anywhere from how much Wii Fit sucks, to simple instructions, to why men should buy their girlfriends Wii Fit. Guess which topic gets the most attention?

From a very limited google search that I conducted (I mean *very* limited) it...

Best Feminist Picks of 2008

The best feminist moments of 2008, in my humble opinion.

Re-Imagining Revolutionary Road

In the week leading up to the release of the film Revolutionary Road, there was quite a media ballyhoo about Kate Winslet reading Betty Friedan's 1963 feminist classic The Feminine Mystique to prepare for her role as April Wheeler, as well as Winslet's declaration (albeit tepid) that she is a feminist ("I think I probably am.

Attacks on Gaza

When buying gifts for children, how do you avoid the pink and blue stereotypes?

The Wii Fit and Healthy Skeptism

One of the biggest gifts this year in the arena of ‘sports/exercise’ is the Wii Fit. It is billed as a game and an exercise space, only better, and it’s virtually impossible to find. You can do everything from yoga to table balancing and apparently so many people are into it, a new affliction has been named for it (the Wii Knee:
