feminism and the masculinization of femininity

The Guardian has an interesting article today about the portrayal of "empowered" women in the media.  It is the image of women behaving badly.  Behaving in a masculine way.  And yes, I can do it like a brother, do it like a dude...., but this is totally missing the point!  Unfortunately, (and dangerously so) this complete misunderstading of feminist theory is extremely prevalent among women, even the more educated.

C'mon, being like a dude is soooo NOT the point!
