Irony Watch


Yes. There is a government sponsored site called GirlPower.gov.

Constance Consequences, or Connie if you’re nasty, warns about the evils of alcohol, cigarettes and club drugs.

There is also a section on the precocious body, “When it’s all done, you’ll be a woman, which is very exciting!” Passive puberty is so empowering.

Feeling like you’ll never measure up to runway models? Acknowledgment that standards of beauty set by the media “aren’t real and can be dangerous” is interesting but that’s where the advice ends. GirlPower.gov doesn’t recommend any action to transgress this “danger”.

What kind of “power” is that?
