"teen girls are super crazed!! it’s unhealthy!!" u ever seen a grown man when his stupid ass football team loses
"The hyper-sexualization of little girls and their bodies, as a mother, really bothers me. It plays into the sexualization of their bodies into their teenager years and adult life. It makes them grow up faster than they need to. Let them be little girls, have fun, be able to play in the playground and not worry about going on the monkey bars because someone’s going to see their underwear. Something like this constricts their movements, which affects the way they play."
Jenny Reid, a volunteer firefighter with Langford Fire Rescue, says the costume is not only offensive to women in her field, it’s also damaging to the self-esteem of little girls.
"That costume is awful and it sends the wrong message," she says. "It reinforces that there are still jobs that are off-limits to women. It’s not a representation of the real job. Little girls can do whatever they want. They shouldn’t be restricted. Those types of costumes put so many limitations on them. They don’t build the self-esteem and confidence you need to be a firefighter or police officer." " [x]
I don’t know why there can’t just be one unisex costume for little kids. When I was little and wanted to dress like a dinosaur, I wanted to look like a dinosaur, not wear some frilly little dress with a picture of a T-Rex on it.
It’s like even on Halloween when you’re told that you can be whatever you want, little girls are still given the message that they have to abide by society’s standards of what’s for girls and how girls “should” look. They’re costumes of police officers and firefighters aren’t taken seriously so they subconsciously learn that they won’t be taken seriously in those career fields so why bother. They’re just an ornament for decoration
I’ve always been a girly-girl at heart; I loved frilly am pretty things. But that’s just me. I would never restrict my future daughter to be a “girly-girl” because it’s right. If she wants to sport some jeans and a leather jacket she’ll get to.

Smart and lazy is a horrible combination that results in disappointed teachers, exasperated friends and a whole lot of bad doodling
