I bow humbly in admiration at her mad feminist skillz, and say to her little brother, "we accept you, we accept you, one of us!"

That's great! And so true that, "Boys don’t read “girl” books because they’re taught, in a thousand small, subtle, insidious ways, that they’re not supposed to." There's the real problem in a nutshell.

Good for her, and her brother. (And I'll note that I also like Tooth And Claw quite a lot.)

A: the best thing about that post was all the Avatar icons. made. of. awesome.

B: my son reads everything I read (except the romance novels. I won't let him read those yet) and ones I couldn't stand, and ones he read first then made me read.

C: Daughter is on the same path, but at a slower rate.

(about your logo -- a couple of years ago, someone at Wiscon had a Patriarchy Smashing Party featuring a big rocket piñata . . .)

I forwarded this link to the Bujold list, along with Jo Walton & Seanan McGuire, who should definitely know.

Thanks for posting it!
