A Special Valentine

If there's one thing the kids and I can agree on, it's our love of gender stereotypes. Gosh, we do love them. Birdy enjoys nothing more than imagining herself one day weak and underpaid, teetering around on spike heels that she can just make out below her double-D fake boobs and pink whalebone spank-me Spanx. It's okay that pink's not her favorite color because it *is* her favorite color! I mean not actually, because her favorite color is turquoise, but conventionally, because she's a girl! And if the spike heels get in the way of the karate black belt she is working towards? That's a small price to play for the femininely helpless elegance of a broken ankle. 

To say nothing of Ben and his love of the color blue! Which is at least his 17th favorite color, if not his 16th! He loves blue and all things blue because he's a real boy's boy-y boy-boy. He can hardly wait for puberty when his beard will grow in and simultaneously push out of his facial pores all of the pesky feelings like compassion and empathy that might bog him down in his manhood ascendance to the supreme manly state of feelinglessness and domination and also the utterly natural footballish man-love of watching men tackle each other. Luckily there are no feelings to stir up! Phew.

It is all so good and right. And so, the kids and I were not surprised to see this pair of paint chips at the hardware store.


Sweet Baby Boy and Sweet Baby Girl. Of course. You would not want your customers to get mixed up, and so it's easiest just to make sure they know which is which, kind of like putting signs on the bathroom doors so you don't end up sitting on a urinal to pee. You wouldn't want to *by mistake* paint a room the wrong color and have everyone turn out transgendered and color-gay and whatnot, and so we were very grateful for the help. But imagine our delight when it turned out that one paint company had gone even one step further! 

And that's just for the boys! Birdy's going to paint her room Magenta Vagina or Vulva Rose. She can't decide.

Excellent recipes for two kinds of beets and butternut galette are here.

      Message: Reading Gillis Britney article about a spell caster namely PEPOKO was, i will say the best that ever happen to me this year based on the fact that i had a lot problem that i was trying to over come.I had problems at home which affected my work greatly. I was now always in a cross fire with my boss.I really don't want to tell story here so i guess i would just go strange to the point on what i have to say.My wife wanted out of our marriage for no just reason.We were married for four year and i think we were happy though we had no kids, it was her idea not to have any cos she wasn't ready to be a mom yet and i was okay with it i mean i didn't like the idea but i went along with it just to please her.It was always like that i mean she always get what she wants.All i wanted was to see her happy i could never do anything that will make her so unhappy.This was all i did wrong that is make her have it her way all the time. I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.She wanted out of the marriage cos i was to nice. From what she said, i was the kind of man ever woman will die for but she wanted a real man to enforce his will no her meaning was i was to week a man for her.And that was the least of therapy session we had cos like she said we where wasting our life together and no amount of therapy was going to get us back together.I was a total mess thinking of how i was being dumped based on how much i loved my wife and how good i treated her,I really didn't know if she was ungrateful or just confused about what she wanted that is mid-life crisis but the bottom line is that she left me and who knows maybe for another man.I was still in love with her, she was the love of my life and i still wanted her to come back that was when i saw Eva-Yolanda article on Pepoko.When i contacted him he made me known that i will have to go through all the spell casting process.Like he said most PEPOKO are too scared cos of trust issues.I had trust issues, but getting my wife back was my ulterior motive and from my experience with PEPOKO i can tell you he is 100% truthful and honest with his customer.I was asked to get some material to prepare the spell and after which he sent me a package contain the spell and the rest just happen the way it was suppose to happen i got my wife back and she was my wife back again i mean she was not that woman who wanted a hard man she was woman i fell in love with who loved me cos i am me.If you want help or fell he can help contact him with his email address pepokolovespell@gmail.com..... ONCE AGAIN HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS: pepokolovespell@gmail.com


      He can solve any problem like,

      (1) If you want your ex back.
      (2) you need a divorce in your relationship.
      (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
      (4) You want women & men to run after you.
      (5) If you want a child.
      6) You want to be rich.
      (7) You want to tie your husband & wife to be yours forever.
      (8) If you need financial stance.
      (9) He can make you pregnancy.nancy

  7. I love this. My six-year-old daughter's favorite color is black. It's been suggested to her that it should be pink instead. When I was her age, my favorite color *was* pink (as in I wanted pink hair, pink eyes, pink skin, a whole pink world). My daughter is fascinated with make-up and used black washable marker as eyeshadow recently because the only makeup I own is powder. Let the gender-bending/twisting continue!

    You ROCK. Seriously. That's what my 7-year-old son who loves to play with his sister (including her 'girl-games') and is hoping to grow up, become a rock star, pierce his ear, and 'maybe be one of those guys who DO wear makeup' would say. He also loves Pokemon, horsing around (you know, the 'boy way'), and hip-hop. No pink in his wardrobe and his hair doesn't grow long, just BIG... but still. THANK you, Catherine.

  9. I once read (in Brain, child I believe), that pink was once considered a very masculine color (which is interesting, but still weird, because last I checked colors don't have genitals).

    My children mix it up. Unicorns and dump trucks. When my son puts on flowered pants for school, I secretly love that he doesn't yet know that he's wearing "girl's pants," but I also hope that if a classmate tells him, that they're gentle.

    I too have a "Princess Boy," but I see this paint color name as referring to a "retro" color. Like a fifties-ish cultural reference. True it's kind of a stupid name, but I'm not sure it's worth paying too much attention to. Perhaps I am naive, but I really don't think people paint boy rooms and girl rooms baby boy blue and baby girl pink.

    Teafortwo cracked me up! I, too, and loving hearing you let it rip these days.

    I have to admit, when my husband very gently removed my three year old boy's valentine's day stick-on earrings before we sat down to dinner with his grandfather, my heart broke a little. This is my stay-at-home- dad husband whose favorite winter scarf is pink stripes, has mostly women friends, and had hair down to the middle of his back as a teenager. Now it's breaking my heart that I let it pass with only a mild reproach. I guess it caught me so off guard because that's not his style. At all. Hmm. --Cathy K

  17. I have been thinking a lot about this issue lately, because I have a bit of a princess boy myself. Granted, he's only 2 years old, and he does love football (thanks to his daddy) and his trucks, but at the moment his favorite shoes on earth are his bright red "sparkle shoes" which one of his awesome teachers bought him after noticing that he was pretty much living in the pair from the dress up corner. I have let him wear them everywhere from the store to church, and I thank god that he is still oblivious to the stares he gets. He's too busy strutting around like a proud peacock-boy.

  19. Maybe we should just dip babies in a vat of blue or pink dye at the hospital so we don't have to risk any of that pesky gender "confusion." That way everyone will know their favorite colors just by looking at an arm or a leg. No thinking necessary!

    I saw some PBS Special (or something like that) that some, oh, 300 years ago, blue was the girl color and pink (because it's related to red, which is aggresive and bloody) was the boy color. Isn't that a switcheroo!

    (And how many times have I heard myself say to my students, "There is no such thing as a 'boy color' or a 'girl color.'"Aaargh.)

  24. I have three girls. They all really like pink. Big deal. Well, actually, when I asked my 4 year old her favorite color, she said "rainbow". If people bought us pink baby gifts in the past, and hand us down their pinky girly clothes, who am I to say "no, it's too pink"? And if my 7 year old wants a pink room with hot pink trim, is it right for me to say "no, it's too pink"? Nah. While I'm no fan of gender-typing, I'm not purposely dressing them in boys clothes to proove some point either. Love you to bits, Catherine. Agree with you 99% of the time even! Just having a pms-y day and need some chocolate NOW. (How's that for gender-typing?!) ;-)

    :)))
    These days, I was forced into reflexion and discussion with colleagues about what is feminine and masculine appearances. A masculine colleague of mine has come out recently as being in the process of transsexuality (man to woman). She is now wearing no more brown and black, and more colors like light blue shirts and purple tights. For her, it was impossible to wear those colors as a man. Obviously, there are more profound issues for her than colors but it is an important part of the change she is undergoing. On the other hand, I was discussing with a feminine colleague how we almost never wear make up, wear in black and brown a lot, are in slacks most of the time and never felt otherwise as (heterosexual) women. As for my transsexual colleague, she is going fully in the make up, skirts, pink "feminine" appearance that I don't like as a woman. And my "masculine" partner, a man, likes to wear pink shirts and was once called bad names for wearing bright yellow shorts.
    Hope I am not being too serious again...
    Thanks anyway for bringing up the discussion in a very funny way!

    Catherine, I love this. You are wonderful. Please, please more from you on this topic. We *need* it. We need to know how to manage this issue with humor and elegance in a world that is often not funny or elegant on this topic.

    My husband almost got beat up once on a Sunday morning outing to the farmer's market because he took our three year old son to the men's room to go pee. Our son who happened to be wearing his favorite pink dress. He's older now and out of the dress phase (my son, not my husband, who has yet to have a dress phase, I guess?), but we still get a lot of comments about his beautiful long hair.

    It's not that there's anything wrong with girls who actually like pink and princesses or boys who like blue and trucks. Obviously that's fine and I'm quite sure Catherine thinks so too. But the world is sometimes very hostile to children who are making different choices.

    Yikes on the paint (ok, stereotype) issues!! It's been my experience that most stereotypes are actually founded in, well, reality, and usually there is darn good reason for them. I admit that extending them to paint colors is a bit murky, so to speak. I kind of understand your angst.

    Regarding the butternut galette thing... made it tonight using a warty Blue Hubbard, rosemary instead of thyme and mix of Parmesan w/a touch of cheddar (cause this is what the larder bore). I've never been good at pastry, but thanks to you, have entered a new realm of life - successful pastry maker. This recipe ranks up there with the baked tomato sauce that is in my "so good you'll cry" (sniff)file. SO GOOD!!

    But then you know what I think about all that.
    xo, hope all y'all are well.

  44. I named my daughter Indigo, so you can guess how much I care about the "blue is for boys" notion.

    On the other hand, she's currently wearing a tutu, tiara and those sparkly Target shoes. If she's like her sister, she will grow out of this phase when she gets out of pre-school.

    Catherine, I have been reading your columns forever and don't remember if I've ever posted a comment before. But, let me just say first, that you are my favorite writer, ever. You simply capture the experiences of parenthood as no other can. And, I just had to comment on this post because I have been very intrigued by gender stereotypes all my life. I was one of those girls who loved all things "boy" when I was little. I wanted boy clothes, boy haircut, a pocket knife, a pocket watch, cowboy boots, a football jacket, a huffy bike and so on. My mother was truly traumatized when I insisted on picking out the outfit for my 4th grade school picture from the boys section: it was a lovely striped maroon and blue shirt with a matching sweater vest from JCPenney. She still brings this up at least once a year and I am 43. It made an impression. When my twin girls were born, I did not like pink, had never liked pink - and could not bring myself to decorate their nursery in pink or pastels, so I went with a Peter Rabbit gender neutral theme. As they grew, the more "girl" colors grew on me and I did add more traditional colors to their wardrobes and their bedroom. Then, of course, they discovered on their own that pink and purple WERE their favorite colors after all. And, I thought in my late 20's and early 30's, that surely I must be gay, given my propensity for all things boy and really identifying more with boys than girls. But, it didn't turn out to be so. I may fall somewhere on the middle-upper scale for sexuality, but I am happy and content in a heterosexual relationship. I just find it all fascinating that even gender identity doesn't ensure sexuality. I do wish our society was more accepting of people who don't fit in these traditional molds, but hopefully we are working toward that in the future. It took me years to sort it all out. I have four kids and I hope that they have an easier time figuring these things out and will be comfortable however they choose to live their lives.

    Hi!

    I don't know if you've seen the new weshop.com venture that Amazon is using to compete with groupon. It is a legitimate company that I have used. They offer gift certificates (usually online only) for 50% off the value. It does take a few days to maybe a week for the company to send your coupon code. Anyways, I bring this up because today's deal is a $50 g.c. for $25 to use at AreYouGame.com for board games! I hope the following link works (It did for me): http://go.madmimi.com/redirects/0864edd3cbd66a65d8b417ba28f81c1b?pa=3025885771
    But I thought of you and your blog and your family's love of board games. Hopefully it will bring a little added entertainment - not that there ever seems to be a dull moment in the Newman household!

  50. I never meant to imply that Catherine wouldn't love her kids if they loved pink and blue. I just think when we put too much emphasis on either fitting into a stereotype or on rejecting the stereotype it ends up the same way, with the kids choosing what will make the parents happy.

    I have 2 kids and while I encourage them to embrace their unique qualities, I don't feel the need to stress that they should be different just for the sake of being different.

  53. When they were little my daughter's favorite color was blue and my son's favorite was pink. She dressed him in a feather boa. They held hands and sang. Now they drive to school together sharing the ipod. They comment about a range of cool colored cars. I could be wrong but I think they're still singing.

    Thanks for shakin' it up.

    Just had to add (very belatedly) that my son is sporting BRIGHT orange toenail polish. He's almost 8. I told him I was fine with him getting it (he came with me when I got a pedicure and his sister was getting her nails painted, too), but that he had to be prepared that some kids might think it's weird or tease him for it. He said he could handle it. So far, so good. But then again, it's not summer when he'd be running around in flip-flops. I wanted him to know both sides - that it is fine, some boys do like polish, BUT he has to understand that not everyone may be kind to him about it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Someday, could you talk to us more about how you help Ben (or how he helps you) deal with the kids and/or adults who comment negatively on his pink choices? I have a daughter who's very interested in traditionally "boy" things, and it's easy for me to be ok with it, but I fear the hurt that may come in later years. I need some tools.

  56. You were the only real thing at Disney, far, far too good for them. I have to believe for you that this is because a door is opening to an even more amazing writing home. I found you whilst pregnant with my just-turned-eight daughter and have considered you a friend ever since, can't wait to see where you'll wind up next! Onward and upward!

  57. You were always, always too good for Disney, the most real and yet magical thing they had (and the only reason I ever went there). I can't help but trust that there is a wider, bigger more amazing door opening onto another writing home for you and I can't wait to see what it is! I found you while pregnant with my now eight-year-old daughter and was grateful for you beyond measure all through that first year and ever since. So much love and gratitude and promise of continued readership to you!

  59. Dear Catherine,

    Thanks for ever enjoyable writing, and lots of ideas for naming colours. It's like colour of lipstick, nail varnish - hours of silly fun.
    I have to comment on the colour thing, since I am a mother of two girls, but also an MA-student in fashion studies. (How did I get here? Long story.)

    The colour pink: one hundred years ago it was considered such a strong, masculine colour that some people thought it wholly inappropriate for girls.

    The colour lightblue: very effeminate.

    All this changed after WWII. The super polarization - with huge divides in colour coding for boys and girls, on clothes, toys, furniture, etc - has occured over the last 20 years. I remember it happening.

    Fun intelligent read, recommended: Peggy Orenstein, Cinderella Ate My Daughter, only just published.

    Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again for lovely writing. Catherine, I discovered your writing on Babycenter almost 11 years ago, when I - new to the internet - wrote www.baby.com, and found you!

    Happy weekend!
    Sincerely,
    Erika, Stockholm

  67. My Wife divorce me for no reason, Thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again, My name is Marcus Williams. i live in Italy, I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same web site: http://Dr.jartosp.blogspot.co.uk/,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. { Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com }, Thanks you Dr Dr.jarto, i will always be testifying about your good work.This spell is a 100% Guarantee for your situation.

  68. Last year I broke up with my girlfriend due to many misunderstandings and I remember very well how hard I had been fighting to get her back. She changed her number, changed her job so that I don’t visit her office and none of her friends would give me any information about her. The only thing I could do was to go find help from anywhere, so i looked for a way to get her back then a friend recommended me to contact wisdomspelltemple1@gmail.com that he will help me and as my friend said, Dr Help helped me to bring back my girlfriend just in 3 days, I now have her back and this is the biggest joy of my life.

    1. What a day to share testimony about Dr. Erigo my life has been messed for 2 years, I have been in a dark tunnel, my boyfriend has never loved me because he has always been afraid to give love a chance after his multiple breakup which cost him his job, car and house (the lady he trusted betrayed him and too all, then). He don’t even treat me like his girl even when he moved into my house. I was angered when I asked him if he genuinely love me, he said he do, but he don’t still trust or have feeling for me or seeing us being together in future, I cried all night because I love him and I can do anything possible for us to be.
      I have to seek for help because I noticed all the efforts I have made for the past 2 years weren’t enough. That’s when I contacted Dr. Erigo through his email (erigospellcaster@gmail.com), I felt like I deserve better because I am good, kind, caring and happy person and I know he needs help spiritually. Dr. Erigo replied and vowed to help me out of the dark tunnel we were into which he did within 3 days of constant work on us. I was shocked when my boyfriend text to tell me that he is missing me and I should come back home early for dinner (this is a man who never cared even if I spend days outside), the spell worked perfectly and we have been in serious romantic relationship for 3 months for the first time.
      Am so happy and grateful for this powerful Master. Thank you Dr. Erigo and remain blessed for also helping my Cousin “Lucy”. We both thank you and your family.

  77. Shocking amazing testimony by Tom Bush

    O.M.G!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2015, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Baba Agba on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about spells before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Baba Agba did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my wife back to me in just 17hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my wife knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept her back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Baba Agba you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful man once again.. here is his Email: babaagbasolutiontemple@gmail.com OR CALL +2347064348663....Tom Bush from England(UK)....
