3. While my childhood is from decades past, I'm glad I was encourged to climb trees and do

all the things little boys would do at that age. I won't use the term "tomboy"--we really need a more progressive word for girls fully realizing their potential sans stereotypes.

5. My wife comes from a family of four girls.

Their father would not let them drive a car until they learned how to change a flat tire and change the oil. They all grew up to be independent professional people who could support themselves if they had to.

6. Or we could work toward "girl" encompassing everything

from pink dresses & dolls to jeans & tree climbing.

Why saddle girls (or boys, or non binary kids) with expectations of how to properly perform their gender?

7. After decades of expectations of pink princesses, I'd say you answered your own question

The point is to open them up to experiencing ALL possibilities. Not saddling them with societal expectations as has been the case for, yes, forever.
