“Cowgirls Rule” (from earlier “Girls Rule, Boys Drool")

"Cowgirls rule!” appears frequently on T-shirts for girls, especially young girls. This saying is seemingly taken from the earlier and slightly longer “Girls rule, boys drool” (popular on T-shirts in the early 1990s). “Cowgirls rule” appeared in print by at least 1996.

>> But would you allow tshirts that say things like, “Cowgirls rule.
>Cowboys obey” ?

>Don’t have to think much about that where we live—someone wearing a shirt
>like that would be laughed at, I’m afraid.

>My daughters have the ones that say “Princess”, and my oldest daughter has
>one that refers to “Girls Rule, Boys Drool” (given to her by an aunt).

LOL… not much different from YD’s “cowgirls rule” tshirt.

I don’t know.  I saw the Houston Texans Cheerleaders during the KC game yesterday:

a) One girl didn’t get the “wear your leather pants instead of a skirt” memo.  Which I guess was ok since I doubt she could have squeezed into leather pants. (yikes)
b) Too much make-up.
c) Cowgirls rule, all others drewl.
