Grandma’s going commando aims to be a sexism-free compilation of media.
Basically, a list of reviews on books, movies, music artists or even twitter users. Anything goes as long as it is interesting and sexism-free.
This website also intends to fill in a gap that I haven’t seen filled by individuals and groups of people against sexism where they offer a much needed critique on our pop culture but don’t really offer great alternatives.
About the title of the blog, it’s a line from the Gilmore Girls. It took a different shape in my mind, though, just what I was looking for: a bit of stereotype-breaking. Grandmas aren’t usually the kind of women you would expect to find holding the spotlight, and grandmas aren’t usually the kind of people you would expect to find either going commando or in a battlefield of sorts. I wanted that stereotype-free vibe.
Things you won’t find here:
- Essays about sexism or anti-sexism.
- Male-free media.
- Female-only protagonists.
- Explanations of why something is not sexist.
