Feminist Friday v.III: Fashion

That's Blondie Boy sandwiched between two vintage photos of myself as a bebe and what do you know it looks like we are wearing very similar outfits! Oh the shock and the horror! "But you're a girl baby and he's a boy baby" you say. No shit sherlock. Who's to say girls can't like baseball?

Again, I've gone the easy route this week, but when my Mom emailed these pictures I couldn't resist. I promise proper feminist rants in the future :)

The theme for this week is fashion and I can't wait to read everyone's take on it. Please feel free to comment (even if you don't post) and leave an idea for next week's prompt/theme.


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.

That's it.

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!

I don't have much time. Boys are driving me crazy, and I am taking them to the beach. So I have cheated and posted a link to something I wrote in June about bikini bodies. I may have time later, and if I do, the next one will be about photoshopping and unrealistic views of womens' bodies. And FASHION, obvs.

I can't comment on limisa's post. Don't know why. But I am so pleased that she has embraced green and lots of other colors, and Carter doesn't have to be a MAN all the time :)

wait, did I get him that outfit?! It looks really familiar. :)

LOVE that you have matching pics.

I have a few ideas for themes.

1. Roll models
2. Feminism in marriage

Just my thoughts, you don't have to use them.

Sare: You gave him a similar baseball outfit, but it was a newborn onesie with a baseball on the butt :)

I looooved it, but he's not such a wee thing anymore!

Abby: Role Models and Marriage are great possible themes!
