This exactly. I have a bogstandard tomboy daughter and have had so many people attempt to "validate" her that I no longer let her leave the house without a piece of jewelry or a headband. It's like hanging a string of garlic around her neck before sending her in to vampires.

That is so fucking sad...

It is. I hate that it’s come to this. She is on board though, because she hates having people come after her more than she dislikes headbands.

Thank goodness your daughter has a strong, independent head on her shoulders. I have a one year old girl and this shit terrifies me....
