By Grabthar's Hammer!

Last year, one of my excellent students did a very dissertation on representations of women and ethnic minorities in online gaming, and on what happened to people who chose such avatars in MMORPGs.

Sad to say, someone's just summarised her thesis one one sheet of paper (educational illustrations here). It's sad but true.

Meanwhile, if you have a female toddler, how about buying her a bikini-line shaving kit? You can't start them too young…

(Thanks to Sociological Images for these).

Gonna have to throw a spanner in the works here Voley. Whilst that product does look "dubious" to say the very least, its title is due to the fact that Spongebob lives in Bikini Bottom, as any fule kno.

I was just going to say the same thing. A lovely bit of Daily Mail outrage from the Vole there.
