I mean he’s a boy you know” Confetti The fucking confetti It barely covered 5% of the image Another instance was when a lady asked me for an image of four superheroes to put on her son’s cake because her son was turning four She admitted to not knowing any superheroes so I offered the most obvious choice—The Fantastic Four I pulled up a picture of them and she goes “Oh no no we can’t have that Let’s do another one” Confused I pulled up a Justice League one with Batman Superman The Flash and Wonder Woman Again she said no I asked her if she needed anything specific she didn’t know superheroes why was she so picky? and she just said “Oh it’s just that he’s a boy you know? We can’t have a girl superhero on his cake” I nearly lost my shit I did temporarily lose my customer service face and ask why women have been superheroes all the time Wonder Woman is iconic etc etc and she was like “It’s just that my son has been playing with Barbie dolls lately and I really don’t want him to end up… well you know” This shit has got to stop When you teach boys that certain things are only for girls you’re limiting them and you’re teaching them that girls or “girly things” are bad If you want gender equality as an adult you better make DAMN sure that you’re teaching the same thing to your kids So this woman did not want her son to turn out ‘you know’ and her plan for that was to get him a cake with spandex-clad manly men AND ONLY MEN on it? I don’t think she thought that one through too well… in sociology class we were talking about gender being assigned to objects and one of the male students started saying how forward thinking he is because he buys his daughter sports equipment and “boy toys” I asked if he’d do the same if he had a son and he said “Of course I’d buy my son sports equipment” I clarified “No would you buy him dolls and other toys that are thought of as being for girls” He turned around and didn’t answer Parents will pat themselves on the back for letting their little girls play baseball but a little boy with a Barbie is still considered an affront to society Fuck everything My father was one of these parents along with several other harmful issues! and even though I know for an absolute fact that his world views and ways are entirely wrong this shit he tried to ingrain into me still effects me to this dayParents don’t ruin your fucking kids by treating them like this Meme
