Today, My Daughter Became A Gaming Feminist

My almost-8-year-old is pretty much the opposite of a girlie girl. Though she’s not a Tomboy either, she’s just uniquely her own person. The kid likes what she likes and doesn’t care what that makes her.

She loves playing video games and The Avengers, so Patrick bought some weird Super Heroes video game. Today while the couch potatoes I call my children were playing the game, Anna noticed something:

Anna: Ha! I can see She-Hulk’s butt!

Wait. Is this a kids’ game?

…looks at game case…

Yup. It’s a kids’ game.

Why would they show a butt on a kids’ game?

Me: Everyone has a butt.

Anna: Yeah. But that’s kind of inappropriate to show a butt on a kids’ game.

They shouldn’t show anyone’s butt.

And, if they show HER butt, why don’t they show Hulk’s butt, too?

I’ve never been more proud of my little couch potato in all my life.

You are obviously doing a great job raising your girls to be equal people in this world. I love, love, love that she noticed this and called Bull on it. GO ANNA!!!

She’s not one to hold back, that’s for sure!
