This article is just too amazing. I am so impressed by the article that I shall request my near and dear ones too read it too. The piece of information written by you is so interesting. I have never read such a good and fully informed article like this.

Glad to see you back in action- but appalled to see this sort of rubbish aimed at kids. Thanks for taking it to task and letting people know that this is not how we teach kids about being healthy!

I'm not concerned about all hell breaking loose, but that a PART of hell will break loose... it'll be much harder to detect.

What an incredible rant! Lovely. Left me feeling a bit mentally breathless, though, like James Frey.

I think you do a very good job. Young girls really need your maintainance!

Who is the author of the articles? I have a lot of questions. The articles consider very serious questions and I see that I have some problems...

This reminds me of a "Five Man Band" dynamic:

The Hero: The main character.

The Lancer: The hero's sidekick.

The Smart Guy: The "brains" of the group.

The Big Guy: The "brawn" to the Smart Guy's "brains."

The Chick: The most feminine member, often a girl.

Anyways, here's a good example: When I was a little girl I would always have fantasies of going on adventures with characters from the video game series Backyard Sports. We even called ourselves the Five Muskeeters. Heh.

The Hero: I was the tomboy girl who wanted adventure.

The Lancer/The Smart Guy: Angela Delvecchio was the energetic tomboy. But she was also knew alot and switched roles with Jorge sometimes.

The Smart Guy/The Lancer: Jorge Garcia already knew the computer and internet better than any of us (and I LOVED the computer and internet), but I thought he was cute and sometimes he and Angela switched roles.

The Big Guy: Achmed Khan LOVED rock and roll-Elvis, Chuck Berry, Beatles. He also played guitar.

The Chick: Maria Luna loved pink and girly things and everything pretty and stuff like that.

So yeah.

PS I learned it from this site. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage.) Feel free to click on the link, but beware, the site is VERY addictive. Unless you have already seen the site, which explains why you haven't posted in so long. Anyways, it's a very interesting site and has a whole section on "Double Standards," including one about how feminine women are "bad" and how being male means you need to take care of yourself and stuff like that.

Please don't repeat what I say.

I consider obesity as a very serious problem. I think it's worth our attention to stop it.

There's also this thing called a "Five-Bad Band" which is like the "Five Man Band" only evil. So yeah.

I think that our life is full of problems made by stereotypes. We should be more original and tolerant to make our lives easier.

As for the Give-Bad Band, I would also pick out five characters to be chosen as villians, probably because in about 90% of children's cartoons, kids beat bad guys. Let's see...

Big Bad: Stephanie Morgan (She were always try to put everyone down.)

The Dragon: Jocinda Smith (They looked like each other, so she would go along with her.)

The Evil Genuis/The Brute: Keisha Phillips. (She used to be friends with them but turned to the good side. Very much an Anti-Villian.)

Don't worry, I've sorted out these characters and they're all cool now.

Dark Chick: Kimmy Eckman (she did hate Maria, plus she was also a wannabe evil princess.)

Isn't the blog topic related to packaging? Sounds it's more girlhood staff.

Yes that' s true. Obesity is a very serious problem. We must think over it. I guess it's worth our attention to stop it.

BTW I have this awesome fanfiction of Backyard Sports called "The Secret Life of the Backyard Kids." It's on Deviantart, here: http://rose64bud.deviantart.com. BTW, while the story doesn't really have strong female characters per se, (with the exception for Sam, the energetic surfer tomboy who puts her mind to everything she does and has hunky Achmed wrapped around her finger), I think I can be a good role model for aspiring female writers.

Like the saying goes, there is no such thing as bad children, just bad parents. If a kid is not getting enough nutrition, exercise or attention then it IS the parents fault. It should all be started from home. Kids have it hard enough as they get older having to compare themselves with supermodels then to have that started earlier. Good point!

i would love to study it at home as the blog post you have wrote seems to be really interesting to me =)

I have gotten better at bridging the gender gap in my story however. Later in the story I'm introducing a young lady named Anavi Ali, who looks like a queenly young lady but is quite the action girl.
