This morning Bella said to me, “I am going to be a singer lady, a paleontologist, and a mad scientist. Aren’t I going to be a busy girl? But my daddy (husband) will stay home and take care of my babies.” So I was all patting myself on the back, right?
This afternoon, Bella says to me… “Why did you say I can’t be a cheerleader? When I grow up I’m going to be the prettiest cheerleader in the world!”
Gah! Gag me with a spoon, ffs!
Thanks a whole fucking lot Kim Possible. Did they have to make her a cheerleader? I guess so. The only possible way a girl could be a superhero is if she is also a thin, pretty cheerleader, right?
On that note, don’t miss this post about early sexualization; the images are really shocking. I share this authors concern regarding song lyrics.
