So this is where gender roles come from

This blog post shows pages from a book from the 1950's (?) celebrating the wonderful differences between boys and girls. I used to think people made this stuff up, but now I see where it comes from. :o
  • Boys are doctors. Girls are nurses.
  • Boys are Presidents. Girls are First Ladies.
  • Boys fix things. Girls need things fixed.
  • Boys can eat. Girls can cook.
  • Boys invent things. Girls use what boys invent.
  • Boys build houses. Girls keep houses.
  • I'm glad you're a girl! I'm glad you're a boy! We need each other.
