Encouraging women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians

If there’s one thing we can say with certainty about all college women… October 3, 2009

What better way to portray pioneers in women’s higher education (that are still producing better outcomes for female students than are co-ed colleges) than as rejects from Barbie’s Dream House?

Oh, if only. Can you IMAGINE how much more awesome our underwear pillow fights would be?

I don’t know what forum or website people go to to hear about the particular products to mock, or if there are other ones around, but here’s a list of ones I found, with excerpts of the type of review you can find (possibly NSFW): (more…)
