inside my head
Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female. People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state. When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry. This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
Now imagine a lifetime of gender specific socialization- male anger is par for the course while the same emotion in a woman is personal weakness. Ha oh sorry don’t have to imagine THAT’S REALITY

This is one of the best children books I know of, but you can only find it in France. It’s about a princess who didn’t like males, and the her father hired a fairy for help and the two girls fell in love instead. Lesbian children books, it’s a real thing.
It’s being translated!!
But in the mean time the isbn is 2742789456
"The Princess who did not like Princes"
I need to find somewhere to buy this.
This looks like the best book ever and I need it now.
