Reversible stereotypes

Almost all of the people I am connected to via facebook are those who I have met, and wouldn’t mind meeting again. The one exception is Stark Raving Madeleine, an independent filmmaker who spends her time recording and editing footage of girls and women doing things you wouldn’t necessarily expect them to, with the grand ambition of breaking down gender stereotypes. She also rides a motorbike, wears red lipstick, and is partial to a good slice of cake. In short, she is amazing. I hope to meet her one day.

Madeleine put me on to this article, a light-hearted commentary on five gender stereotypes that are often taken as genetically-determined absolutes, when it wasn’t that long ago that society assumed the exact opposite. Interesting stuff. Cheers, m’dear!
