Really? Is this the best we can do for our daughters?

I am outraged that we can’t produce anything better for our daughters to wear except vapid and inappropriately sexualized clothing declaring boys over books or shopping as a favorite academic subject.

Its bad enough that girls are socialized to center their activities around their favorite boys and to build their conversations around gossip while boys are socialized to build their conversations around their favorite activities, now girls have their clothing literally speaking for them.

This is a revisitation of the Barbie in the 1990’s that had, “I hate Math” in her repertoire.

This is derived from the same source that would socialize girls to want to become princesses (again, defined by the men that she can snag but limiting her own personal development as an individual, yeah, just what we want for our daughters.)girls math

  1. I definitely like math better than shopping or dancing. I don’t even have to think about that one, lol
