How to Ignore Feminist Parenting Advice
Robert Stacy McCain

Hm. I, as a female, have a twin brother. Our parents adopted a gender neutral parenting style. Mom had all of us helping out in the kitchen and Dad had all of us out helping with the cows. We had the same rules, same expectations. We were allowed to play whatever sport we wanted, to participate in school activities regardless of their gendered implications. My brothers and I grew up playing video games, sports, and dolls right alongside each other. All of this to say, I don’t think either of us are any worse off for it, and I would consider us pretty normal. Raising boys and girls the same way isn’t a bad idea, and I do believe my parents would agree.
