Stop Trying

Also, now that I’m out of the infant section and into the toddler aisles, I can’t tell you, folks, how much of this “girl empowerment” stuff there is. Toys, books, clothing, backpacks, bibs, shoes, and on and on and on. Screaming “Girls are great!” at you from all sides. She persisted! Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life story for 5-year-olds! And another one for 8-year-olds! Women who achieved! 

I feel vicariously embarrassed when I see people trying so damn hard.
