things I found today

Thank you, feminist blogosphere.
Thank you, Wellington Young Feminists' Collective.
Thank you, Peggy Orenstein.

The Destructive Culture of Pretty Pink Princesses

"What really floored me, both as a girl-advocate and as a parent, was the way that prematurely sexualising girls or play-acting at sexy for them from a young age disconnects them from healthy authentic sexual feeling. So that they learn that sexuality is something that you perform, instead of something that you feel."

Just...wow! I had to sit for a few minutes to digest that. I haven't even finished reading the article myself yet - I just had to share it!
