A few weeks ago, I stopped by my neighborhood CVS for one-person party supplies and a current-events refresher, delivered as usual: via magazine covers. Forget the tabloids — some dude can sneeze his wife’s hair off, sure, and Dick Cheney probably is a robot; it’s Glamour that’s out of control. February’s cover featured Shakira, perfect date outfits, and 1,001 men answering all your questions about “Sex, Your Body, Babies, and Falling in (and out of) Love.”
"Men teaching women about women," I said to my BFF cashier (she always lets me use expired ExtraReward coupons), holding up a copy. "Like anyone would buy that.” We rolled our eyes, we had a good laugh. Then I went home and watched the Golden Globes extol the lifetime achievement of Woody Allen: writing for women.

When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
