Do women's internet sites need to grow up?

If two new women’s websites are to be believed, women want to read about boys, cute animals, their periods, and they want to read it in a Valley Girl accent. Oh, girls, they just wanna have fun.

The two sites in question are Jane Pratt’s xoJane.com and actress Zooey Deschanel’s HelloGiggles.com. When Pratt announced her new venture last fall, media watchdogs cooed in anticipation. Pratt's first creation, Sassy, attained cult status with the hipster set, and her second venture, Jane, was much loved and considered a major loss for women’s magazines when it folded. Plus, much-admired teen fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson was on board.

  • They meant ""girls"' not women, RIGHT?? LOL.

    Like......totally......I just can't see 'me' ,..a grown woman of 46 wanting to read about boys (vs MEN), cute animals, & periods. I think they're confused on what a woman really is. Or what age range. LOL

  • It's all too depressing. I wish more limelight were given to a stronger group in our younger set.


    Even GIRLS don't JUST wanna have fun.
