While it is amazing that we are finally getting some lady superheroes, it’s also important to teach girls from a young age that it’s also okay to admire male superheroes too. In fact, parents take note and teach your boys that anything boys can like girls can like too. Having a young, female nerdling of my own I’ve seen firsthand the torment that some boys will put a girl through for liking “boy things”. Your nerdlings need to know that it’s ok to show their nerdy pride in whomever and whatever they love whether they’re a girl or a boy. Let’s bring down sayings that make girls seem inferior.
“You hit like a girl.”
“You run like a girl.”
“You’re such a girl!”
You know what I’d say to that? Good. This soapbox moment has been brought to you by Captain America.
