Food for thought. My favorite part: 

When Teachers Highlight Gender, Kids Pick Up Stereotypes describes a study that showed kids adopt more gender stereotypes when teachers lined kids up by gender — or even said, “Good morning, boys and girls!” While that might seem surprising at first, psychologist Lynn Liben, who conducted the study, points out, “You would never say ‘good morning black children and white children,’ or have white and black kids line up separately.”

    I was smart enough as a kid to realize something was messed up about this; why does this still go on?

    Lining up children by their genitalia sounds kind of sick, doesn’t it?

    Not surprising but very powerful: remind kids of their assigned gender roles and they’re more aware of them.

    I love the black children / white children analogy! Wow. It’s true, you wouldn’t line kids up by skin color, so why do...
