Shiny things collected by an easily distracted marine biologist. There will likely be fish, critters, science, other people's art, fannish stuffs (mostly of a science fictiony, Sherlocky, or cartoonish nature), teapots, things that make me laugh, and occasionally, kids.

Girls’ toddler Cookie Monster costume vs. Boys’ toddler Cookie Monster costume. We’re not joking when we say gender expectations and sexualization start early.
I refuse to believe her costume is Cookie Monster. It looks more like Cookie Monster dropped his cookies into the sea and then he dove in after and he’s slowly drowning.
Don’t let little girls go trick or treating in that, it’s COLD on Halloween night.
Having bought a few similar costumes, I don’t think the one on the right is specifically targeted to boys. I think it’s just labelled “toddlers.” As for the one on the left, there a whole trend you see at in cosplay at anime cons of turning characters (and sometimes monsters or machines) into girly costumes like this - there’s a word for but I can’t remember what it is - but fans do it on their own, and it looks to me like costume makers are trying to cash in on that. I think the thing is not to force one or the other as being boy or girl, but let the kid choose what they want. I know my daughter might have liked the one on the left, but then she’s also been a decidedly non-girly chicken and a squid
As I saw posted somewhere else, not only should girls be able to dress up as Superman, but boys should be able to be Wonder Woman if they want to.
