@stoprobbers: But the idea that feminism should ignore the "little stuff" is a straw man as well, used to undermine people. "Why do you can about X when Y is more important" implies that you can't care about BOTH, and if you're a regular here I think you know we all care about a gamut of issues to varying degrees, both feminist related or not.

This a blog that posts 50 posts a day. NPR ran a 3 minute spot in a 24 hour cycle. I would not say that's devoting undue attention to an example of something that illustrates greater problems with media messages in our society. And I do think media messages are hugely important, but it's fine if you don't. You think they are bullshit, you recognize it; that's awesome, but a LOT of people don't.
