sometimes I wish...

...that Pingu was a Pinga. Then I could dress her up in pink and glittery stuff, and buy her pink Legos and Hello Kitty and stuff. Just to piss off the so-called "feminists" who are anti-pink and anti-anything girlie. Because they hate being women and femaleness and girlieness so much that they will deny anyone with XX chromosones the right to want to wear pink, be pretty, etc. because misery loves company and all...

Oh wait, or is the real reason why they want to get rid of pink that they will actually have to defend the boys who choose all that pink crap? It's OK for girls to like "boy stuff" but for boys to like "girl stuff"? Is it really OK? Where is the outcry against the tyranny of blue? Think about it...

(One of these days I'll actually dive deeper into this topic.)

By the way, am I the only one who has noticed that the result of the 70s "make everything gender neutral" experiment seems to be a greater than ever division between the sexes?

Last week Mercer asked for his nails to be painted so I painted them the colors he chose. His brother wanted his nails done too so I did. At basketball practice other kids made fun of Mercer and at school kids picked on both of them. I asked Mercer if he wanted me to take the nail polish off, he said no but requested "boy colors" so we redid them in gray and blue stripes. Kids still made fun. I asked him if he wanted me to take it off and he said no. He said that he wants the nail polish more than he cares about what the other kids think (although, he would like me to figure out how to make skull designs for his fingers).

I don't know how we're doing with raising the kids in general, but if nothing else I am proud of the fact that my son would rather be himself than conform to fit in.

See, that's the way it should be. However, I think a lot of the wrath against the girlie stuff is more to not have to deal with boys wanting the girlie stuff than the supposed damage it causes girls...
