"There are so many exceptionally good books with strong female characters, but not nearly enough, and boys are not encouraged to immerse themselves in them. How many people would never consider buying Anne of Green Gables or Island of the Blue Dolphins for their 10-year old boy, but don’t pause before giving a daughter Treasure Island or Enders Game? Books featuring girls are, for the most part, understood to be books for girls. Which is interesting as well because, in addition to there not being enough, books featuring girls as protagonists are disproportionately among the most frequently banned children’s books. In a recent Buzzfeed list of 15 commonly banned books for kids, almost half were about girls. Girls who do things apparently scare a lot of people."

srsly nothing makes me happier than watching the kiddos play basketball. i LOVE it, it makes my soul sing. today i brought my camera to the away game with mari and i took pictures and we got fully into our angry sports dad personas. at one point we had to step back and examine our choices because we were being a little TOO enthusiastic about our delight at the other team’s mistakes. OOPS.
another game tomorrow night, who needs to get any work done after school anyway? NOT I.
