Thank you, now I feel validated, but yes very much made for neurotic 20 year olds with hips.
Is it, though? Do young women really enjoy seeing ditzy caricatures of modern gals, or is it rather the work of gaggles of old white male execs who, in a subconscious effort to atone for keeping their female peers from reaching the very top, seek to convince themselves that all cute gals are as bubbly and meek as Pretty Woman-era Julia Roberts?

Or maybe young women actually do like comparing themselves favorably to such cartoons, thus perpetuating the gimmickry?

I really don't quite know.
Sex and the city and Ally McBeal made a lot of money.
