Smart is Beautiful. Does your child know?

Take that all you silly shirts aimed at young girls and boys.  Telling them studying is stupid. Partying is better. blah blah blah! I would not let my daughter wear a shirt that says something along the lines of instead of homework I’d rather be at the MALL.   I am sure she would be. Well I secretly hope she will rather be saving the wetlands or fighting for human rights or heck even setting up a lemonade stand than the mall. Bu every good parent knows what a child wants is not necessarily what they need.

So thank you Justice brand clothing for this design.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!   We need this message more often. We don’t need pretty girls acting in movies and pretending to be smart. We simply need to focus more attention on smarts and less on the drama of whoever flashed their underpants on the next hot reality show.  It isn’t just about girls either,  I see ignorance and stupidity marketed to boys as well. Violence is a more popular theme with boys and it is no better than promoting a girls just want to have fun mentality. Than there are the Girls rule Boys drool.  UGH! I am sure most boys just roll their eyes,  but I’d wager it makes some feel that maybe they are lame.



I have more suggestions:

What haters?

I love the internet for the versatility you can find. I love how anyone has a chance o speak their minds and disagree or agree. Being able to have conversations with so many different people is a wonderful gift. What I don’t like is the amount of haters. I went to a page on Facebook for Women’s rights and there were several posts by men who said nasty, hateful or just ridiculous things. These are not people that want to have a conversation, learn or share experiences. They are simply bored, unable to use the comment areas as forums for real conversations. They are complainers, whiners, immature losers. It is so pathetic it makes me laugh. I have met these people in real life and they are just as annoying.

What I love about the FB pages is you can use the X next to a comment to Report Abuse, Mark as Spam or Delete. When you report abuse it gives you an opportunity to write a note to that person(waste of time) or block them and you never see their posts again. So the next time someone is acting up and being hateful to you or what you believe, use that X. Than smile, laugh and let it be in the past, because at least you are not filled with as much hate as them. Use your inner strength to move on and enjoy the rest of your day.
