The Doubleclicks: Nothing to Prove

This video by the Doubleclicks is pretty great. As the newish father of a baby girl I've become much more acute to the amount of institutionalized sexism there is in almost every aspect of raising a kid. For instance my son has a boat load of Justice League branded clothes and books. None of them have Wonder Woman in them, because he's a boy and I suppose if his shoes had a girl on them they would be girls shoes? Meanwhile have fun finding anything Justice League related for a little girl that isn't all Wonder Woman and Batgirl.... also hope you like pink!

Those are just small superficial things, I would rather deal with a mountain of pink onesies than the first asshole that tells my little girl she can't do or like something mundane simply because she's a girl (with my luck that a-hole will be my son).

Anyway, back to the video. This thing already has a million hits. That's pretty good for a Portland nerdcore folk band that I've only heard of because I've fallen far too deep down the Pacific Northwest nerdcore rabbit hole. Good on ya ladies, make your voices heard, or read in this particular case.
