Lila has been watching the Sesame Street "getting ready to read" video. There's this one skit, where a boy puppet and a girl puppet go through their "word family song," reading words that rhyme: hop, top, mop. And when they get to "mop," the boy puppet shouts out "hey, that reminds me -- mom wants you to clean up the house! Ha, ha!"

It's a half-hour video and she watches 10 minutes at a time, twice a day, over and over and over again. So I get to hear this skit a little less than once a day, and every time I do I end up with a headache from gritting my teeth.

The patriarchy, it is seeping into my child. One subtle choice at a time.
