      Gendered Survival Guides for Kids (click thru for analysis) - I am so much more aware of how the media/society plays to boys vs girls.....it's ridiculous!

      Gendered survival guides printed by Scholastic. Has since continued. The comparison between the survival skills covered in each is worth the click.

      As we analyze poster of gendered survival guides for kids, it is clearly identified that survival skills are different for a binary gender. It puts the impression that both genders know nothing about what the other gender must go through. This poster is inappropriately stating survival skills in terms of gender binary, when it should be equal for all individuals (Sharp, 2012).

      Annie C. and another reader sent us a link to a post by Ryan North at what are the haps about a set of gendered “survival guides” for kids published by Scholastic (and which the publisher now says it won’t continue printing). Boys and girls apparently need very different survival skills, which the other sex shouldn’t know anything about.

      Young Girl Protests Sexist Books - Books sound like they were written in the 50's. Albeit there are still a lot of boys who like cars and girls who like barbies... (viva la difference!) its a tough line to cross if you really create something for the two sexists and don't just "change it up" a little (ie the shyness for girls can be written as shyness for boys) My suggestion have each gender read both and Be the one to explain away the myths!
