Clink this link, and read this article: http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/04/jcrew/ , I think it is a perfect accompaniment to the article posted, just before my post.
Recently there was quite an uproar, and a flurry of articles written, over a J. Crew Ad, which showed a young boy with pink nail polish on his toes. The below article was written in response to some of those articles. (I’ve also attached links to other response articles.) In our culture, gender – what it is, who decides, how it is expressed – is a very ‘hot-button’ issue. I think these articles offer a fascinating glimpse into minds of differing perspectives. I hope that you will comment. I would love to hear the classes’ thoughts on this issue.
