Brenda Laurel on Purple Moon

Via Dorknewz, a great article by Brenda Laurel on Purple Moon, girl games, and how women interact: The feminist ideal of collaboration is not a great recipe for getting things done. On the contrary --- without a clear authority structure, a faux-flat organization forces people to resort to the underworld secret alliances and covert operations in order to exercise personal power. Such an organization can expend far too much energy on the complexities of its emotional and political life.

In the Girls rock genre I got this.... According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year (the only members of the deer family, Cervidae, to have females do so), male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid December. Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen. . . had to be a female! We should've known. Only women would be able to drag a big fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night, and not get lost!
