Last week, I was scanning through my RSS feed and came across the following title at Bust: "Watch This: Empowering Girls Through Parkour!" Being a huge parkour fan and loving the idea of it empowering young women, I hurried over and check out a video of young girls getting taught the basics of David Belle's sport. (Check it out at the end of the post.) The clip got me thinking of girls and action, and well, off the parkour track.
There was a time when it was believed that macho test fests full of steroid-enhanced muscles and dumb man mayem were making way for "action babes" -- the Lara Crofts and Charlie's Angels. But as we've seen over the last few years, the boys are back in town -- especially Sly Stallone. The Italian Stallion went back to his old Rocky/Rambo formula, and it worked like a charm. Now muscles are, once again, in ... on the men.
