Jennifer, being pragmatic again here…I’m sure we could both find multiple examples of when those things mattered and when they didn’t. My point is that I’m not going to tell her she won’t be judged for some things differently than a man just because she shouldn’t be. What I tell her (she’s only 11 and better not be thinking of wearing makeup anytime soon), is that in some areas, there *is* a double standard for women. Whether she complies with it or not is up to her. But I’m not going to pretend it doesn’t exist just because it shouldn’t.
