Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

11 April 2013

My daughter just shook her head...

then dramatically put it on the dinner table. She's nine and she gets that telling girls to not wear leggings in order to not distract boys is ridiculous*.

I'm not using the term "rape culture" with her yet, but I hope I'm setting her up for that "Oh...this is what Mom's been talking about!" I didn't even address her when talking about the story. Rather I addressed the table where my husband & daughter were waiting patiently for the server to bring us dinner, "So, there's a middle school..."

*OK, she is my daughter, so she might be swearing in her head, but let me believe she's immune to my foul mouth.
