Girls behaving like boys
Like Deborah, I get a bit hot under the collar when terms like 'lady' and 'ladette' are bandied about. A lady is someone who's behaviour needs to be regulated, she must act a certain way and needs a big strong man to take care of her. Likewise terms like ladette and blokette also piss me off. Ladettes and blokettes are silly girs who have crossed the line from empowerment and are acting a little too much like men engaging in behaviour that is a danger to themselves and others. The thing that urks me the most about this sort of behaviour isn't so much that girls are behaving badly but that somehow it is still accepted with a nod and a wink for the boys, who we all know, will still be boys.
