You’re worth a billion of them.

“So. The world hates you. You are considered the worst thing to be compared to. Throw like a girl. Talk like a girl. Cry like a girl. God forbid we ever be girls.”

This post has been floating around the internet this week. (Warning – adult language.) For those of you who didn’t click through in fear of four letter words I’ll tell you that it’s a letter a woman wrote to her daughter that’s basically about how the world hates her because she’s a girl, but she shouldn’t worry about that because the world is stupid. I enjoyed it and agreed with a lot in part because, except for some details, it could’ve been about my niece who doesn’t fit into any stereotypes.

I was watching Project Runway’s finale last night* and there were commercials for Lifetime’s new show, The Fairy Jobmother, during every single commercial break. They even tried to trick me into watching the commercials by including Project Runway contestants in them, but I was not fooled and fast-forwarded my way through each and every one of them.
