Powerful, but unfortunately, still too pink

The idea for this post is lifted shamelessly from Tigtog’s Lauredhel’s Images from the Mailbag post.My mailbag contains an invitation for a corporate night of fun and motivational speeches, like the one I wrote about here. Well, they’ve lost the “…in the city” reference (it’s the Cashmere Mafia these days, but I guess they couldn’t decide on a way to work in a “sassy” reference.) But it looks like they’ve kept the same graphic designer.

More anorexic chicks in the city!1!

These gatherings are meant to be about women being all empowerfulled and taking over the boardrooms of the world and stuff. While, of course, staying thin, pretty and wearing six-inch heels. Hey, I’m convinced!

Many people blame feminism for promoting the concept that motherhood runs a poor second to a career of boardrooms and paper jams. And I do, too. (Feminism is still a good idea. It just needs to be digitally remastered to include women.)But I thought we’d moved past all that. Apparently not.

The word “tool” needs redefining, as it doesn’t currently encompass the full tooliness of this tool. (Do you like the way he assumes the women will be the ones dealing with the paper jams?)
