Gloria Steinem, movie commentator
In a column today on The Huffington Post, Ms. Magazine founder and former Harvey Kurtzman assistant (at Help! Magazine, published by Jim Warren) Gloria Steinem notes the tendency of some to dismiss certain types of movies as "chick flicks."
She says, " … let me appeal to your self-interest as well as your sense of fairness: If the ‘chick flick’ label helps you to avoid the movies you don’t like, why is there no label to guide you to the ones you do like?"
Her solution? "Prick flicks." If only.
