Because I’m supposed to show up with one at the hospital, I am buying one nursing shirt. My only “nursing shirt.” Because it’s summer and to me ‘easy access’ means the same as ‘nursing shirt’ and also I’m the sort of person who hears “no underwire bras when nursing” and, after going out and searching (fruitlessly) for a 32J strapless underwire-free bra that might work all summer, takes out a straight razor and slices the underwire out of the strapless bra she bought to get through pregnancy.
So, at least it’s multi-purpose.
Hal took dance class, too when he was young. He took ballet with a class full of girls - a class he loved and looked forward to until his friends found out and made fun of him. He quit the next day and never danced again. My brother stopped for similar reasons. They all did. And I watch the little boys on stage recognizing that at some point they just stop dancing… that the girls age, get curvier and more confident, dance on chairs, flip their bodies through the air, but there are no boys over five on stage. And I think of Hal and how he “never lived that one down” and how unfortunate it is that we don’t acknowledge #boysunstoppable the same way we do girls. “No girl should stop doing what she loves because of anxiety about her looks.” No boy should stop doing what he loves because of anxiety about how it looks to everyone else. And yet. (via Girl’s Gone Child: The Recital)
