|The "offending" toes - outrageous!|
Pickle has a tea set, he has a baby doll he nurtures, along with a myriad of stuffed toys. Not to mention Lulu and Hermes, who
As a society we're (still) figuring out that girls/women are as capable boys/men - if I had a girl, I'd be buying her Goldieblox. If you don't know what they are, there are some excellent videos on YouTube here and here, and a fantastic TEDtalk.
Can we do the same for our boys/men please? (But in reverse, if that makes any sense?) They can be - and indeed are - loving, caring and nurturing.

If I painted that man's toe nails, would it change his sexuality or preferred gender? I promise to get off my soapbox soon, but would really love it if you watched this video that asks the question gay people get asked all the time... and this mind-expanding TEDtalk about transgender youth.
As a girl, I think I had the best of both worlds, I had dolls (and cats) I dressed up, but I also climbed trees, and rode both a bike and a skateboard... I'd like for Pickle to have the same opportunities.
Do your boys paint their toe nails or play with tea sets? Do you allow your girls to build with blocks or train sets?
