Gender Inequity

I know I've been a bit obsessed with entrenched sexism lately--well, there's been a lot of it around--but I finally figured out why.

I just saw the Journey video for "Separate Ways," and I realize that, during my formative years, women were expected to be frosted, coiffed, made-up, and dressed in white, bedazzled denim. Men were expected to look like, well, Steve Perry.

Tell me that's fair.

You left out the nose job. If Steve Perry had been a girl, he definitely would have had to have a nose job.

Which I think he finally did, and relatively recently if memory serves. Not quite sure what that means....

Not fair. And nothing's changed.
