As I take my cootie shot is the project of these three excellent babes:

Founders of Hello Giggles

More specifically:

Founded by actress/musician Zooey Deschanel, producer Sophia Rossi and blogger/web personality Molly McAleer, is the ultimate entertainment destination for smart, independent and creative females. Everything hosted on the site will be lady-friendly, so visitors need not worry about finding the standard Boys Club content that makes many entertainment sites unappealing to so many of us.

There are moments when I revel in fratboy humor, and moments when I am utterly appalled by it. (And sometimes, yes, those moments are adjacent to one another.) Their first piece, a three-minute spot for Teleflora, is cutely whimsical, and I have a high tolerance for whimsical cuteness, which gives me another excuse to keep an eye on HelloGiggles.

    Okay. Why do I get the feeling that these paragons of the New Feminine Delicacy would bristle at the idea that they should be shielded from danger and difficulty the way women were in the past?

    That, I couldn’t tell you. Perhaps they don’t have a great deal of experience with difficulty, let alone danger.

    On the other hand, you never really know about how you’ll react to the stuff yourself until it actually shows up.
