No, it doesn't perpetuate unhealthy stereotypes, because, you are not supposed to follow this guide! The title is completely ironic! The cover of original edition (the one I have) portrays an adorable young woman in pink and from under the heart-shaped ribboned-skirt we can see two little hooves peeki [...]
