Now, the Olympics is a great place to find role models. SO many strong women on display!
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

I hear you on the 'female powerlessness' in a lot of Taylor's songs. Catchy tunes, and she's just so beautiful in the videos, but the depth of the lyrics...not so much. BUT I'm pretty good about directing the girls to like the strong women... Put it this way, they much prefer Katniss over Bella.
Taylor's songs are someone immature, however, they are better than most pop and courntry music that glorifies alcohol and promiscuity. That stuff is fine for adults, but many parents allow unlimited access to all of that music and it's odd to see young kids singing to it. It bothers me, because they don't get that it's inappropriate to sing about sleeping with multiple partners and getting drunk.
Taylor does have at least one song that is about a girl power. I'll have to find it.
And hey, I'm not a big fan of Taylor...please know that. lol
I heard an interview with Taylor Swift and I will say she impressed me in a couple areas. She seemed very level headed and really knew about the business side. The other was when she said that she carefully considers each morning what she will wear knowing so many people (girls) could possibly see her and be influenced. She said in response to others saying it's not their responsibility to raise those girls that she knows they are watching her and possibly emulating her. She seemed to take that pretty seriously.
