Christmas present don’ts
Last week I let you in on a few of the anti-princess gifts I’ve bought my daughter for Christmas.
This week, I thought I’d have some fun and show you what won’t be in my children’s stockings.
All of these items are real and on the market now.
My three-year-old does not need a bra.
She doesn’t have breasts.
2) A French maid costume.
This picture is the ‘tween’
edition for girls 9-12.
There are, oh I don’t know,
at least five hundred billion trillion
other costume ideas I could come up
with for my daughter before ‘sexy cleaning lady.’
Read my Halloween costume vent here.
Sorry fashion floggers,
you can’t sexualise my son either.
If you wouldn’t dream of letting your
girls pose for Playboy, don’t encourage
your boys to consume it.
4) One of these creepy My Little Pony dolls.
Remember when they were simple plastic ponies with rainbows on the rump?
This is actually called a My Little Pony Equestria Girl – because all of the horse-loving folk I know ride in metallic mini skirts and boob tubes.
Science does not come in pink and blue. It’s for everyone.
No wonder there’s a market for products like GoldieBlox.
