My 4 year old daughter got this Hallmark card yesterday for Halloween in the mail:
The good news is, right away, she said, “Oh no, only two girls. Eight boys.” She gets it. But the bad news, of course, is the repetitive message in kidworld, whether from Hallmark or Target, boys can be so many things– pirates, superheroes, cowboys, monsters, skateboarders, clowns, or aliens. Girls, however, get limited choices.
My daughter will be Wonder Woman tonight, and I’m off to go see if, at this last minute, I can find her a golden lasso….
