The latest Wal-Mart Halloween commercial here in the US reminded me of grerp’s post Piece of Advice #74: Do not confuse being difficult with being strong:
If only girls have more moxie then they will become men!
Too bad it isn’t true, since all we are getting from this mass experiment is a group of unpleasant irresponsible women instead. On the bright side, for those of us with daughters this is an excellent teaching moment. What better way to teach her not to be a bitchy little girl than by noting it when commercials like this come up?
Edit: One of the comments on youtube captures the feminist infatuation with moxie perfectly:
I love the girl’s attitude when she says “I can’t read” 🙂
