I Raise Girls.
I know this has been out for awhile now, but I had a friend recently gift it to me.  It’s great fuel for this girl powered star wars family.

The witless sarcasm and vitriolic reaction I see in the comments section of my local paper is disheartening to say the least.  No, it’s not a left wing media conspiracy nor big government telling you what to do.  Yes, it’s an acknowledgement that language matters to kids, even in its most subtle of forms.  And yes, let’s metaphorically ban it.

Am enjoying the recent incarnation of the All New X-men title.  I love to see shift, not only in characters and storylines, but in the creative and editorial staff.

Famous Women Pirates

Found this via the “Toward the Stars” blog.  It’s timely as I heard an “aargh, I’m captain hook” the other day from the play room

A New X-men #1, eh?  It won’t be the first and won’t be the last in my collection. If this cover is any indication of the story and art, mainstream super hero comics could be taking another step toward realistic and responsible female portrayals. I could be sneaking copies of this series into my little one’s stack of Mickey Mouse and Wonder Woman comics.

Stumbled upon this site recently and thought it be a nice collective that challenges the silliness that girls and science somehow don’t mix. From their site, “ScienceGrrl is a network of (mainly) female scientists who are passionate about passing on their love of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to the next generation.”
