File under: Blissful Ignorance

I have no idea what planet Lisa lives on, but here is her pseudo pro-fem rant du jour:

    I’m just sick and tired of it, and I’m freakin’ pissed off at all the people telling me We don’t need feminists anymore, It isn’t true, We don’t value boys more than girls, We’ve achieved our goals, Girls can do anything.

    Anything but be heard, anything but be seen, anything but be a freakin’ cartoon.

Um, Lisa, could you shut up for a minute and let me introduce you to a few of my fellow female cartoon friends (who are a lot more justifiably pissed that you say they don't exist):

And, I am sure you would reject all of the old Disney gals, since they are just weak, demaning charicatures of the kind of dewey-eyed does men like (sort of like Bambi's Mom, who sacrifices her life to save her son, which is stupid, but would have been cool if Bambi had been her daughter instead of her son), but what about the more recent agressive and independent ones, like Pocahontas, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan and Esmeralda?

I could go on, but I think I have made my point. The selective use of biased statistics from Ms. Magazine does not accomplish anything useful for the cause of feminism.

Well, Smurfette, according to blue buddies, the male/female ratio in the Smurf village is somewhere north of 97:3

just sayin'...

And that proves there are no female voices to be heard in cartoons? Just another misleading statistic.

Kim Possible was pretty funny, the 10 minutes I saw of it.
