What’s the problem with pink and princess? The marketing, not the moms.

I agree!

Dr. Rebecca Hains

This week, New York and Slate published pieces asking why so many moms have a problem with pink and with princesses.

“What’s the problem with pink, anyway?” griped Yael Kohen in New York. Then, building upon Kohen’s piece, Slate senior editor Allison Benedikt demanded: “What is it with you moms of girls? I have never met a single one of you who isn’t tortured about pink and princesses.” Her annoyance is palpable.

Both writers proceed to defend all things pink and princess. “We treat pink — and the girls who like it — with […] condescension,” Kohen states, while Benedikt adds, “Moms of daughters need to chill out.”

Let’s take a step back, please. I am the author of a forthcoming book called The Princess Problem: Guiding Our Girls Through the Princess-Obsessed Years, and Kohen and Benedikt’s arguments are wrong on several levels. By pontificating on the subject without actually talking to the moms they’re criticizing, they’ve missed the point. Having interviewed…

Insignificance.

An everlasting emptiness,
Of sand.
A desert drowned with pettiness,
It’s no longer your land,

Years ago some watched you mistreat,
Servants rushing at your every want,
Civilians bowing to your feet,
Watching you vaunt,

Now nobody can see you sneer,
There’s nothing left of your ruling,
No one can hear,
Your memory calling,

‘Feed more more gold’.

Life vanishes at our fingertips
Catch and cherish what’s important

Kiss me.

An explosive energy is racing through my body,
As I run my fingers through your lush hair,
You thrust me nearer as I
Breathe in your chemicals,

Your lips are advancing closer
And closer

I gaze back into your eyes
And they’re pigmented with more colour
Than ever and
Dilated

I can’t help but
Bite my lip
As yours approach mine,
A sensation of warmth
Rushes through me,
I’m under your spell
Bewitched.

I love you

If only you were mine
If only this was real

Blissful warmth

Take me to an island,
Of blissful warmth
With radiant creatures,
That’ll melt my worries
As I chortle and announce
‘You’re powerless now’.

Hope dancing
In the surrounding ocean
With ease,
Mystical magic
That’ll meet my eye
And smile back

Will you take me there?
Away from this place
Of weeping and sorrows,
War and death,
Lies and deceit.
To a parallel,

Enrapture me, making me believe,
That such a place exists.
