Buffy and the new feminism. "The blonde, blue-eyed slayer can do no wrong. Loved by men and boys for her 'hot' looks and admired by women and girls for her butt-kicking antics, Gellar's impact is far-reaching".
Wow, I think this person just totally missed the whole meaning and feel of BtVS. Some of her points are twisted on purpose to make her point. I'm a 39 year old mother of two and I felt Buffy was a great show for girls and boys to watch. Buffy might've had slaying powers but her biggest strength was her mind and her cunning and with the support and love of her friends and family made her unbeatable. The early shows did show her dressed the way this author described (but also greatly exaggerated) but that is what the fashion was. In later seasons Buffy acquired a wonderful style of dressing that was classy and elegant and boys and men still found her beautiful and attractive and girls still admired her.
