Feminism has become a dirty word. For many, it can alienate. For some it conjures up images of people demanding opportunities that they do not deserve.

What makes a woman independent is her imagination, a desire to become the shero in her own story and the master of her fate. It has nothing to do with "the reality" others see, only what she chooses to see and act upon.
Yet another violence allegation against accused child abuser Adrian Peterson has bubbled up beyond the protection racket of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and sponsors like Cover Girl who protect the league for profit.
Would we be having this discussion if Hugh Jackman had been displayed shirtless on that rotating pedestal? I think not. This was tongue and cheek, people. A parody. A lark. And a creative way to present a boring part of the show. Geesh!
