This is Sharpay Evans.
In her junior year, all her hard work she’d put into the East High drama department was thrown down the drain when a ruthless monster named Gabriella Montez transferred to the school and heartlessly seized the leading role from her.
Over the summer break between her junior and senior years, she was stabbed in the back by her own twin brother mere moments before she was meant to go on at a talent show, and she was deprived of the prestigious Star Dazzle Award that she - and not Gabriella Montez - deserved.
In her senior year, she was betrayed yet again. Sharpay, out of the goodness of her own heart, took a British exchange student named Tiara under her wing. Tiara turned on Sharpay and stole her role in the spring musical.
Nevertheless, Sharpay managed to bounce back, and she overcame all that stood between her and her dreams.
Everyday, I am inspired by her strength. Like and reblog if you are too.

It’s not being catered to women; it’s being catered to everyone. To consider something catered to women means that those words are therein gendered, which puts things on the gender binary and we get into a whole different discussion, but:
I like it because it makes me laugh to hear things described like that. I don’t think a specific gender is being targeted. I think of all things it’s catering to a younger crowd who will enjoy the wit and such behind things (maybe even some texting lingo). It brings it from hoighty-toighty news craziness to a more down to earth read for me. It also helps in the “skimming” of it because it’s a breeze to read through instead of “the Supreme Court” and “the court is in session.” So it might be that things are shortened to keep it a light read.
So, the company isn’t dumbing down the news, it’s cutting the bullshit and adding some fun. Since the founders are women (who attended Columbia University & Tufts University), I doubt that would ever be their intention.
However, the founders are really open to feedback, and I would hope you would feel comfortable enough to shoot them some feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
