Sexist Laptops?

by NeW Staff on January 28, 2009 · 0 comments

When I was shopping for my last laptop, one of the main comparisons I made between laptops was their weight.   Why?  Because I carry my laptop around a lot and the extra weight matters.  Weight was likely more of a concern to me and my female friends than our male friends.  It makes sense to me that computer companies advertise the weight of laptops to appeal to women.  However, one feminist website finds this offensive and cries sexism.  This is a good example of the way that taking the position of ignoring all differences between the sexes discredits the larger feminist movement.
