WTF

(no subject)

So, Disney has decided to 'breathe some fresh air' into the Winnie the Pooh stories by making Christopher Robin a girl. Not just any girl, though - a 'tomboy girl'.

This got me thinking. Are there really such oddities as a 'tomboys' anymore? I assert that the character set previously called 'tomboy' is actually the NORM now and the oddity is a 'girly girl'. But then, I grew up with a bunch of boys, what do I know?

I believe I am insulted that the Disney execs felt the need to add the qualifier "tomboy", actually.
