I love it when people compliment my children, but the theme is stuck in the same tired old groove. My six-year-old daughter is always "cute", "pretty", and "sweet"; while my seven-year-old son gets "smart", "resourceful", and "determined".

Did it ever occur to you that maybe your son looks like the spawn of an Orc and a Hairless Chihuahua and that maybe people were just looking to give him *any* compliment, the equivalent of a "[having] a nice personality" when trying to hook someone up on a blind date?

The posters FTA were actually really inspirational to a graphic artist such as I am, so I made a couple of my own:

Hmm... should I see them on Etsy or Society6 or CafePress?

I just go with "your child is smoking' hot & sexy!", regardless of the gender. Or age.

So then buy the blue poster, you stupid twat.

You're biatching about gender stereotyping, then adhering to "pink is for girls, blue is for boys".

fark you and anyone who looks like you.

Dafatone: Christ, this thread is full of assholes.

The straight-up "she's a woman blogging so she must suck!" is to be expected.  But the winner are the couple of "Well, yeah.  Girls should be like that because that's what I'm attracted to" idiots.

You forgot all the people braying about how all the other people posting here are idiots.

It's like a Choose Your Own Adventure Book for idiots:

It's a typical Sunday afternoon. You're yet again pontificating (via twitter) to your 23 followers. Suddenly, someone posts some "Dream Big" posters to your twitter feed. You find these posters somewhat objectionable. What do you do?

To ignore them and actually "parent" your daughter yourself, turn to page 23.
To passive-aggressively post your histrionic outrage to your "blog" (and thus confirm what an awesome and progressive individual you are), turn to page 55.

listernine: Tl;dr, sandy vagina, etc. etc...

I ordered a book called "How to be a feminist in three easy steps"

It was a diagram of a vagina, a bag of sand and a tampon applicator

Dear Mom with issues,
The rest of us will try to bridge the gap between your crazy attempt at raising her and her first of many therapy sessions.  We are only trying to help until she can emancipate herself.
You are welcome,

Good, kids are ugly and weird, we all were, and we all had those awkward phases and I don't give a damn about your kid, don't post them on Facebook or shove them down peoples throats and don't define your existence to push out crotch fruit and what they do (believe it or not other humans and species can reproduce and it's not new).

No Such Agency: To be fair those posters are pretty bad. Kids absorb the gender role limitations, spoken or unspoken, that we immerse them in. I don't mind pink but I'd love to see a pink shirt aimed at my daughter... that has dump tricks or dinosaurs or any one of the other things she should feel free to like, even if she also likes pink.

I don't know what you're into, but to a NYC hooker a "dump trick" costs A LOT more.

I find those posters to be offensive as well. Children need to know the truth early on, that "fairy tales" and "home run" aren't single words.

Maybe we need an MRA to explain that under boys they have "sleep under the stars" and under girls they have "reach for the stars." Who is being encouraged to be a hobo and who is being encouraged to be an astronaut?

Your daughter is Arya?

No as cool as that would be, I've got to say no. that would make me Ned. I don't want to be Ned. I don't want to be any kind of Stark given the shiat that happens to them.

BE A TERRORIST. Cunning. Seductive.
Kidnapping. Pit full of cyborg tigers you

Maybe the poster would be black and blood red.

Clearly the right course of action is to make your own posters, in a nice gender neutral color, then let the free market sort it out.

Can't we just start trying to teach kids more realistic goals?

"Look, timmy, there's like a .00000000^A% chance you'll ever become president, and you have no acting talent so showbiz is out. Why don't I teach you basic auto repair or you can take a look at this vocational school nearby..."
