Panda-ing to the Masses
We avoided the 100-degree heat in Portland this weekend with a trip to blessed air conditioning to see Kung Fu Panda. And while you can't escape its exploitive racial sterotyping and fat-phobia, it did provide a good takeaway lesson for my 8-year-old daughter.
Namely, as a woman you can train your entire life for a position, as Tigress does for the position of Dragon Warrior, but when push comes to shove, the powers that be will end up giving that job you've poured your heart into not to you, but to an incompetent hacklehead with no training who literally falls out of the sky--as long as he has a penis.
