This is an article I recently read, and especially favored a paragraph on the last page that stated girls and boys are born with equal capabilities in math, and that the gap develops gradually due to cultural stimuli or lack of.

I thought it was worth reading, and would love to hear your thoughts!  Anyone have a Tom-girl or Suzie boy?  I have 3 daughters and only one was ever remotely princessy.

I have one child a dd, she's 11.  She is most definitely girly girl.  She loves shoes, purses, clothes and of course jewelry and makeup.  But she does excel in Science and isn't afraid to dissect anything, and this past year she got down and dirty with one of the after school clubs where they cleaned up the environment.  So maybe there's some tomboy trying to creep out,lol

My daughters love everything. She's girly, for sure, but she loves being dirty, playing with cars, really, she's a mini me :) she's the one in the dress playing in the mud ;)

My daughter love dresses, painted fingernails and toes, princess tiaras and she equally loves sticks, jumping in puddles, and playing in dirt.

My son loved anything pink and princess when he was a toddler, but at 4 not as much. We have done nothing to discourage it, but who knows what he hears from kids at school.

 My two girls are definitely girly girls.  My son loves legos, Star Wars and robots

I have done my best to avoid raising my son to believe that certain things are "girly" or "boyish."  Although he still picks it up from peers, which drives me a little bonkers.  But I don't steer him.  I think he's pretty well rounded but he's not a "Suzie boy," if you're using that to imply effeminate.  He's still a boy, but he's one that will happily play barbies with the neighor girls, or super heros with his cousin *shrug* he just wants to play.
