I don't know how and why boys and girls are different, but the feminist mother's imperative is to celebrate the differences. And, really, this is the healthy parent's imperative.

RE: the excerpt - the fuck is with those asshats who believe that the empowerment of girls comes at the cost of boys' self esteem and social standing? God, this is exhausting shit.


I was unaware that feminism's goal was to root out gender and foster androgyny.

I have observed my "kidlets" for 15 years now and there are obvious differences, including gender. None of it should be rooted out from them, they should be guided into healthful, tolerant attitudes.

And I agree with Grace, this is exhausting. Why do we have to keep covering the same ground? SisterR feels the same way.
