Magical World

Wouldn't it be lovely if, with just a twitch of the nose, life, or any aspect of it could be changed. Instead, positive changes always seem to involve tremendously hard work, determination, and endless setbacks. How lovely it would be to have the powers of Samantha Stephens.

Boy Stuff and Girl Stuff

The theme for Girl's Camp this year is "Be all that you can be," and activities are loosely based on basic training and general Army stuff. Today Tabitha and I received invitations for an upcoming activity. The creative invites were made from imitation dogtags and attached to plastic army guys. Adam said, "Whose are those?" I told him they were for Tabitha and I and what they were for. His response: "No fair!! You get boy stuff for your activities. How come we never get girl stuff for our activities?"

There are no sexual stereotypes in my home.

    There seems to be a major concern about boys acting like girls, but no concern about girls acting like boys. When youth are invited to wear costumes (e.g. Halloween, etc.), we always get explicit instructions that boys are not to dress up in girls clothing - even if it's just to be funny. But, I've never heard anyone express similar concerns about girls dressing up like boys.

    One reason I love the Brits like Monty Python and others: they think nothing of dressing up like women - not as feminine women at all - but in "fancy dress" costumes as women when the occasion and appropriate humor (humour) calls for it.

    I am not at all interested in cross-dressing - it hold no appeal at all to me - but I do laugh at those crazy Brits when they get to do it.

    We Americans are pretty hung up about boys acting like boys and girls acting like girls or boys.

    My question is "will you get to shoot guns and throw gernaides?"

    now that would be a cool girls camp.

    LOL

    I couldn't believe the disparity in information during sex ed in grade school when they separated the boys from the girls--the girls got all the details and pictures and the boys were just told to start washing their armpits. Geez.
