About this product Product Information First he taught boys all about mischief and perfecting their shenanigans again a nemesis.
Next it was how to play games-without the help of a video-game controller. Where girls got a chapter on boys, boys got a chapter on "experiments. Boys got science. Girls got boys. This book was not written in the 50's. It was written in Bart King is an actual person who thinks this shit is OK. I try not to get too riled up about the general stupidity of the world, but this really got to me. This waste of paper found its way into my daughter's birthday, just like crap like this is going to work its way into many of her days from here on out.
I almost bought the book just to throw it away.
I wish I could buy all sexist shit out there and throw it away. I shouldn't have to tell my daughter that girls are more than boys and gossip.
That is not a lesson we should need to teach. My daughter is and will be more than boys and gossip. She may have to claw her way through a world of shitty pink books by shitty male authors to do it, but I have faith in her.
Because I see the strength of my wife in her, who is willing to call stupid things stupid. I see the resolve of her grandmas in her, who have shown her what a lifetime of work and dedication can build. And most of all, I see her in her. She is a singular and self-contained ecosystem of awesome. She is the beginning of all things her. On the car ride home from breakfast I mentioned that for the first time ever, a girl is very close to becoming President of the United States.
She shrugged it off as if it were as normal as the orange juice she had with breakfast. I like that. I like a world where pink purse books are stupid and women presidents are normal. I think it is only fair to give him a chance to reply to this post. I asked him if I could publish our email exchange, and he was kind enough to say yes. So here you go!
As a history lover, I believe most people like having background. So: I taught middle school for 15 years, and still visit schools regularly. Getting kids excited about reading was then and still is my primary professional goal. And what I want for ALL of my students and readers is for them to be empowered, educated, and entertained. In , I was contacted by an editor about writing a book for middle-schoolers. I did. The bulk of my reluctant readers were boys, and over the years, my colleagues have had the same experience.
While that is anecdotal, studies show that this gender distinction in reading is the case nationwide. So I declined the offer. And despite my gender disenfranchisement, two things made writing the book possible: 1. I got a lot of help as described below. I took a leave-of-absence from teaching to devote myself to doing the best job I could on Girl Stuff full time. Anyway, I asked 55 of my former female students most of whom were in high school and college at the time to help contribute to, edit and proofread every chapter in the book.
