Did you know that back in the day pink was for boys and blue was for girls? Pink was a "strong" color and blue a "dainty" one. At some point obviously this norms flip-flopped, but who says either colour has to represent just one sex? Who says anything has to be solely for one sex?
Blondie Boy has a t-shirt that says "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" and I freaking love it. I've put a pink bandana on him before, too. I don't think babies should conform to culturally enforced gender norms, they should just be babies.
In addition to linking up your post this week I'd love it if y'all left suggestions for future Link-up themes and prompts. These can just be topics, recent news stories or anything you'd like to see written about and I will theme/prompt next week's link-up.
PS- I apologize for such a weak post, but Blondie Boy is on a nap strike and I didn't have it in me to pull out the big guns! I had visions of clickable source links and beautiful metaphors, but it's just not in me tonight :)
Here's how it works. Write a blog about being a feminist mom, raising a feminist child, a rant or anything that falls under the realm of being a feminist mom. Come back and link your post and post the button on your blog.
You don't even have to be a blogger to take part - just send me your post and I will publish it on my blog for you. You don't even have to include your name if you prefer.
When you've published it, come back on Friday and via a widget thing you can add a link to your post and share it with everyone. The link remains open for 5 days.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support other feminist Moms.
The more support you give, the more you will get back! I can't wait to meet and interact with other feminist moms around the world!
