Change media query from 600px to 37.5em for better response and accessibility

The current media query is 600px for collapsing blocks on small devices. This is good, but not the best. If a person wishes to adjust the default font setting in the browser to larger or smaller, the layout will not align.

I have tried to make my themes as responsive and as accessible as possible, but I cannot overcome the hard 600px query.

default font of 16pt * 37.5em = 600px
