    Is there really any difference between manly muesli and the recent “chick beer”? If one shows masculinity is “fragile,” wouldn’t that imply femininity is as well? To me these things suggest instead that marketers are totally misguided in their gendered attempts to get their products to appeal to a wider audience. In any case I’m going to stick to my manly beer and girly muesli.

    I actually thought “razor burn” was a cool name for that shade of purple. Take that, gender binary!
