I finally got around to writing my piece on gender, pink baby clothes, innate sex differences and how it's a really big mess waiting to happen.

I'd love it if you'd read and spread the word if you like it...

And for those parents who said they were interested in joining me to blog over there... any ideas? Send me stuff! (Believe me, I know how little time there is... this took me a full month to get written.)

I ... have an issue. Doesn't your blog title, "Modern Mama," carry on the restrictive gender stereotype that this subject is only of interest to mothers, and not to fathers? To tie in to something you wrote in the blog post, my son loves the twin toy dolls that were bought some years ago for his sister ... but when hugged, they say things like "Awww ... love you, mama!" Can't daddy love and hug his children and be affectionate? Can't little boys learn that caring and showing affection for babies is important, and rewarding?
