Smart Girls and Christmas

Christmas is coming and I would like to suggest you purchase products that do NOT promote female value as equated with a waist circumference smaller than that of a cranium. Why? 

Because, there is more for girls to consider than a good corset when planning for adulthood. 

This girl is so much like my middle kid, that exasperated look like, “How else can I possibly explain this so you will grasp the enormity of this situation?!?”

I WISH I had encouraged more messes, exploring, sports, fun, hugs, risks, and dreaming.  

(There should be Avengers underwear for girls! The nearest I could find is a very cute, Black Widow set but for size S to L adult girls but nothing for little girls.)

35 years ago, Judy Lotas ran the creative group for LEGO and fought to put girls in ads. "Boys and girls are different, but not to the exclusion of wanting to create and build. That’s not a gender issue."

If You Let Me Play
I will like myself more
I will have more self-confidence
I will suffer less depression
I will be 60% less likely to get breast cancer
I will be more likely to leave a man who beats me
I will be less likely to get pregnant before I want to
I will learn what it means to be strong
If you let me play sports.
