When I found out that I was going to have a son, I was so surprised. A boy? What?
Immediately, I had visions of this super-aggressive and dominant child. Isn't that what they are? They are The Man. They are the ones oppressing women. And now I was going to have to parent one. No opportunity to continue the "girl power" culture that I loved so much.
But a funny thing happened when I met my son -- I started to realize how destructive girl power can be to boys.
