I'm meticulously picky about what media comes in our house. In my quest to find interesting girls for mine to watch and read about, I just couldn't find any that spark my girls interest in the same way their male heroes do. I've tried Madeleine (go for the European options first, eh?), Dora the Explorer, Angelina Ballerina (a total no-go), and some Minnie Mouse. Nothin'.
Then I remembered She-Ra. Yeah, as in Heman's sister. The girls think she's *awesome*, and her horse can fly - w o w! This may start a new phase for them; we'll see. However, I'm no lover of the 80's, there's only so much synthesizer and spandex I can handle. Let's face it, I do not enjoy She-Ra, but I do like the fact that the girls have a female superhero now, blazing blonde hair, cheesy lines and all.
