I think it's good that they want to watch that. It shows that they aren't conforming to stereotypes and aren't afraid to express themselves. But fighting over it... That's adorable! But I guess FYL for having to sort it out....
Or it means they haven't experienced how mean kids can be for those that weren't raised with the "this is for boys, this is for girls" teaching. My now 6 year old loved pink because I made damn sure he wasn't raised with that bias. As soon as he was around other kids in this small town.. "Pink is for girls". >
I agree! I feel like that part of the FML is unnecessary to include. Good for them for liking what they like and I hope nobody tries to discourage them because they think content can be specific to a gender. That's so silly. Hope your kids can stop the fighting though, OP! I have 5 younger siblings and I can totally see any of them getting into this same sort of argument. Kids can be petty as hell.
Holy fucking shit people, this is an FML about two little kids fighting. Why are you turning it into your unnecessary, self righteous area acting like your so fucking open minded and progressive. When I was about 7 or 8 I loved playing with a pink power ranger action figure, and you see NO ONE GIVES A SHIT. People can like what they like, do what they do, but you don't have to take something so meaningless and turn in into your conceited little safe area.
#43, Barbie may be designed for and marketed to little girls but it is in no way 'meant' for little girls. That implies that only little girls are allowed to purchase and enjoy, which is false. Anyone can enjoy a Barbie. My 7 year old daughter bought yellow Minion pajamas earlier in the boys section. Just because they were designed for boys doesn't mean she didn't like them better than the pink monstrosity in the girls section. We had the same issue with super hero underwear, so she wore (and still wears) boy's briefs. It's what she likes so who cares? It doesn't affect anyone but her so why not?
Doesn't actually show they have been exposed to the stereotype and are having a conformity problem? They want to watch but won't choose so the other one is responsible for picking the show they don't think they should want to watch. I agree they shouldn't be concerned with the girls vs boys shows or things in general but I think they are in this case. To all the "pink is for boys too" type comments; pink was a masculine color and blue was feminine until around WWI. There's a long reason why the perception changed but historically pink was a male color and light blue was female. So it's all just current social views that make it out that way.
That's when you take away the Netflix and make them clean. My mom did that. Only we had to watch HER show.
so I guess you can say they are already having 2 identity issues! first being self identity as twins but secondly if they're gay lol! hopefully they grow outta barbie and in power rangers or some shit! sry op #kids suck
Yes, how dare they watch the developmentally-appropriate show designed for their age group instead of something designed for 7-tween years. Obviously the 'problem' is that they're gay. Because the sexuality of four-year-olds is just REALLY important to you for some reason. THAT'S the problem, not that they're four and enjoy age-appropriate media consumption...
what has this world come too. boys fighting over a Barbie shoe. those boys need some boy (dad) time
