arrgh! someone needs strangling

IMDB’s Studio Briefing is calling Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2a chick flick to compete with all the fanboy, druggie, and monster stuff out there for males.” Presumably that means The Dark Knight, Pineapple Express, and, I dunno, maybe The Mummy 3.

Fuckety fuck fuck, this kind of thinking drives me insane. Why are monsters and drugs considered boys-only? Don’t these people know that plenty of girls like monsters and mind-altering substances? I mean, you don’t have to be a fan of certain individual flicks — as I am not of Pineapple or Mummy 3 — to be freakin’ pissed off at this attitude. Why is the only thing considered appropriate for girls junk about mooning over impossibly perfect boyfriends?

I won’t deny that some girls are complete fucking morons who define themselves in relation to men, but not all of us do that. Give us a little credit.
