Seriously, this is hysterical. Scroll down to the Gloria Steinem part...
And this article by Harvey Fierstein is probably the single best piece of writing on human rights and US politics and cultural truth I've ever read. In.my.life.
His last paragraph is etched in my brain. I've printed out a copy, I may turn it into wallpaper.
Finally, Mr.Cotta, my hero, got up at 4:00 am and was in line at Toys r Us by 5:00 am. to buy a Wii. He was seventh in line, in the cold, in the dark. People were mostly very nice, except for the two thugs who showed up late and tried to threaten their way to the front of the line. Mr.Cotta and the other Dads stood their ground and started to call the cops and the thugs took off.
And now we own a Wii!!!!!
After months and months of trying, we finally got a console, and it really is the coolest game unit ever invented. The whole family has been jumping around, playing, making little avatars of ourselves, absolutely awesome. It's so incredibly easy I can't believe it. There is no way I'd ever be able to play a Playstation or an Xbox, too complicated & too violent. This is intuitive. I've already tried the Wii exercise workout program, and I've asked for the Tiger Woods PGA Golf for Wii!
I am finally going to learn how to play golf without having too embarass myself in public or pay green fees. Kickass weekend, my dears....
