Quote# 132856

Feminists are so overly concerned about what children play with because they are petrified of females being feminine. They like to cry that females have no power and need to be just like men. They are completely missing the point that females do have power but only through being feminine and by being submissive to the men whose care they are under (I work and make money but yes, I am still under my husband’s care) and by just being respectful.

I have witnessed my twenty something pound female toddler niece who is the definition of a “girly girl” completely and utterly wrap three grown men around her tiny finger just by being her sweet, submissive, honest, and feminine self.

Her father, grandfather, and uncle would all literally kill and risk their lives to protect her. She’s a child. She isn’t worried about or seeking power. She just knows she’s loved and she’s happy.

These feminist types should worry more about being deserving of that kind of love and devotion and less about what children are playing with.

I hate grits. How anyone can eat that crap is beyond me.

As for this sad little cockroach, you can kiss my un-submissive ass.

Feminine and feminist are not mutually exclusive.

Is that niece going to be any less lovable when she hits third grade and wants a chemistry set and a microscope instead of another damn doll? Or is she only valuable as long as she is "submissive"?

Is the implication here that this girl's own family wouldn't love her if she wasn't "sweet, submissive, and feminine"?

And how the hell is a "twenty something pound toddler" a "girly girl", anyway???

@ KingOfRhye

She cries more often than not, is utterly helpless and dependant on others, believes almost anything you tell her, is easily impressed by shiny things, and if she gets out of line not only is raising your voice is enough to sort it she's got no way to take care of herself if you threaten to throw her out even if she could actually conceive of doing so instead of automatically trying to please the parental figure. To this idiot that's the ideal woman, just buy her something pretty to wear and you're all set.

That's frightening. That is honestly frightening.

Submission is the opposite of power! Toys should not be gendered. There is nothing wrong with being girly or being masculine. There is a problem with defining people's interest by their genital and/or genes.

I suspect that her father, grandfather, and uncle would all literally kill and risk their lives to protect her even if she was a tomboy. or a budding CEO.

The Question

Oh, well, a toddler isn't exactly a great model
for how all grown women should act, you know...

Yes, she wraps three grown men around her finger,
but she would still do that if she was more hot-blooded,
domineering and masculine.
These men would still want to protect her because she's a toddler.

My daughter is the sweet submissive girly type you so seem to love but at the drop of a hat when you cross her wrong you would think a demon from the pits of hell possesed her and she will read you the riot act at 11 years old. It is possible to be"girly" and tough as shit at the same time.

She's a toddler! Their immediate famiy is like the sum of their entire world!!!!

Fuck this submissive shit. Nothing wrong with being girly or liking girly things but damn if that means you have to submit to some asshole's authority because he has a dick and you don't.

Isn't it weird to describe a toddler as being feminine or masculine? Or "submissive?" They're friggin' babies, ffs. Aren't baby boys just as sweet and cute and stuff cuz they're a goddamn baby??

Seriously, shouldn't any parent/guardian love their child and protect them, no matter what, because it's their kid? Are they really saying that if this toddler wanted to wear flannel and was totally butch, somehow, they wouldn't care about her as much? Just. What.

It's also weird to call a toddler "honest." Has this person ever actually met a little kid irl? Like most "traditionalists" this idiot just sounds heartless and insane. Never mind they can't even grasp that people who are against gender-specific toys simply don't want kids to feel boxed in and pressured by stereotypical gender norms when it comes to what they play with.

If you don't love her when she's not 'submissive', you're not a f*cking parent. You're a bored child who wants a dolly. Children aren't inherently submissive--they just do whatever pops into their tiny heads. That's why you keep them away from hot and sharp things, and don't let them stick the butter knife into the electric socket. They're going to hate you, they're going to throw fits, AND YOU STILL LOVE THEM BECAUSE THAT IS YOUR TINY PERSON AND YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

Children are not dolls for parents. They're people.
