Today’s breakfast cereal shows female on the box, guess what she’s proud of?

A couple days ago, I blogged about how my kids love to read the cereal boxes while they eat breakfast and how the games and toys advertised are ridiculously male dominated.

Our current favorite cereal is Special K with red berries. It’s really good. And there’s a woman on the box! A superhero? A villain from Star Wars. Um, no. It’s a woman on a diet.

It is really driving me crazy that from cereal boxes to LEGO to card games to movies, we are bombarded 24/ 7 with these messages and images about gender. It sucks!

Reel Girl rates Special K ***SSS***
