Yes, why wait until they can walk and speak to give them sexist toys when you can do it when they’re still babies? So, the other day, at the toy store, I found this:     Sure, it’s in Japanese, but do I really need to explain? I guess I […]

Sexist Toys for Babies and Toddlers


    You both rest in peace. 🙁   (credits: Lawrence Schiller – Polaris. Here is an interesting EW article about it. Thanks Massimo).  

Debbie and Carrie



Today, I’m unearthing old pictures from back when I used to live in Florida. It’s a small town called Cedar Key that was one of my favorite spot in the area. The waterfront really looked like a pirate village, and the rest of the town had a pretty unique charm […]
