This is just yet another feel good attempt to make the entitled feel better about themselves. Rather than breaking gender stereotypes, this magazine is reinforcing them.  I mean, seriously, glitter and glue? That’s Mitchell’s stuff.    The problem is that we have too much Mitchell’s stuff already and not enough “making” stuff.  It’s easy to get glitter and glue.  Just go about a 1/4 mile in my case one way and about a mile in the other way.  Robot parts, not so much. You are hardly going to break gender stereotypes doing the same sort of things that reinforce those stereotypes.
