• Deborah commented on the blog post “This is 40″ bloated with tired stereotypes   2 years ago · View

    Maybe it’s because I actually am 40, but I’m not feeling overly offended by this trailer. Of course there are stereotypes in anything financed and promoted by Hollywood – the best way to sell anything is to make it “comfortable” for the buyer and that usually means not challenging pre-conceived notions.

    HAHAHAHA – YES!!! This made me laugh out loud, and reminded me of my friend’s blog post to help men feel less left out of of the war on genital scents. Enjoy. http://amydoesfitness.blogspot.com/2011/10/ball-wipes-and-bicycles.html

You speak eloquently about the passions [...]
