Pirates and princesses crowns


I wanted the children of my class to wear pirate and princess crowns then Irene came and said “that’s sexist isn’t it; boys will be pirates and girls will be princesses.” And I realized that I was stuck in the same way of thinking as people have always had; boys are strong and brutal and girls are nice and delicate. And life doesn’t work like that. Does it? There are girls in my group who like playing football, cars and playing rough ( pushing jumping and kicking) and there are boys who would rather sit down and draw or read a book than run after a ball .I finally decided that everybody will be pirates … next time I’ll draw animals and everybody will be happy.
