There has been a big uprising in recent weeks over a J. Crew add that featured a mother painting her son's toenails bright pink.
The conservative response was less than favorable, most of which I would say is way overblown bluster over what is essentially nothing.
In response to the conservative response, the liberal approach took up a bold protest movement.
And started a (facebook) pink toenail event.
Overall, the whole situation strikes me as fairly stupid.
Everything from the fact that toenail polish comes right off with nail polish remover to the stupid ideas of "gender" being imposed on something which is simply imitation play... it is just dumb. And the pink toenail response protest is almost as bad for continuing to make a political issue out of something that shouldn't be politicized in the first place.
I had no serious intention of participating, not to mention details like my children being little girls who are halfway expected to prance around with pink toenails at least occasionally during their childhood anyways.
But, as Kristina choose last week to start begging for me to paint her toenails for the first time, the girls ended up with pink toes anyways.
Aren't they cute? Whomever created super fast drying nail polish is a GENIUS.
