Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

Rob,

I love that you mention deconstruction of language. Also, that we teach children just with the toys we play with as a child. Our heterosexual norm is really a prevalent issue in today’s society. I know that my sister decided she would not pick her child's toys, but let him select the ones he wants to play with. Alot, of people think it is weird that he has a barbie, but hey it he likes to brush her hair it isn’t hurting anyone and it should be a lesson to our society on how we are so absorbed into gender roles and stereotypes.
