“Too Pretty To Do Homework” Shirt – TOO STUPID To Know Better!

TOO PRETTY To Put Up With This Crap; TOO EMPOWERED To Stay Quiet 

Have you told your 7-year-old daughter that she’s STUPID today?

No worries. Why not let a t-shirt do it for you?

Hold on just a sec.

Let me fix my hair, check my lipstick and adjust my own tight t-shirt.  Because clearly that’s the only thing we dumb neophytes of intelligence are really worth.

At least it’s the message of yet another product targeting the tween-set.  This time, the only things lasting are outrage and public backlash.

The center of the storm?  A shirt for sale in J.C.Penney’s  back-to-school clothes – the prime target: tween girls ages 7-13.

But, instead of starting a fad, it created a firestorm.

C’mon. Seriously, how STUPID can you get?

Superwoman’s Cape Is Now Her StraightJacket – Empower The Cape

SUPERWOMAN’S CAPE IS NOW HER STRAIGHTJACKET — EMPOWER THE CAPE
By: Maria Luce
See, here’s how it happens. She thought she could do it. And do it ALL.But then when she tried to fly and:

SUPERWOMAN GOT HER CAPE WRAPPED AROUND HER NECK.

Time to use your vast array of SUPER-POWERS and EMPOWER YOURSELF.

How many times do you find yourself slipping into the dreaded “I-have-to-be-Superwoman” thinking?  Must do it all, must be perfect, and must look good doing it.  — Oh!  And smile… Yes, THAT thinking.  Ever find yourself there?

Yea, don’t.

That cape of yours you think is so darn cute and – not to mention – you look incredible HOT and SEXY in — no, it’s actually like 4 sizes too small, is SO antiquated and idiotic – it’s reminiscent of the corset… and remember, women PASSED OUT and nearly died from those whale-bones-disguised-as-fashion.

Same thing with the Superwoman cape.  Screw the cape, I say.

The REAL Superwoman gets help!  No, not mental help. (Though, some superheroes have been seen slipping into the nearest padded room with the cape magically transformed into a straightjacket.)

The REAL SUPERWOMEN have MIGHTY POWERS:  here it is…..  ready?

Social Media Saved The Prom! The Revolution With A True Fairy-Tale Ending.

I just recently told you about James Tate.

James Tate and His Date.

Remember this:

According to Connecticut teen James Tate, he thought a written invitation would garner his a “Yes” from his date…  here’s how he did it… giant letters on the side of the building at Shelton High School.

After seeing Tate’s invitation on the building, school officials banned the teen from the Prom altogether.

It triggered an international controversy and  HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS exploded a digital revolt!

The web was ON FIRE and exploded.

School officials had NO IDEA of the giant social media beast they’d awakened.  And you’ve GOT to see what’s happened since!

Should You Stay At Home When Your Kids Are Older?

Meredith Viera

Meredith Vieira recently announced she will be leaving the TODAY anchor chair to spend more time with her husband and college-aged children.

When a woman at the top of her profession with older children exits the office for a career slow-down or hiatus, some people scratch their heads – why now? Don’t kids need their moms less as they get older?

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I am agnostic when it comes to what Moms should do.  It is UP TO YOU! A Stay-at-home Mom works just as much as a Working Mom (outside the home).  One of the reasons I started this blog was to get information like this out there.  In this piece, Alexa Aguilar makes some interesting points that I want to share.
