Can these science-themed clothes for girls change the world? (Hint: they already are)

Svaha started as STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math)-themed clothes for kids. But after they launched, they started getting flooded with requests from women in science and tech who also wanted the clothes for themselves. (Good to know I'm not alone!) The Svaha clothing line is aimed at shattering gender stereotypes. They want to teach kids and the adults that love them that it’s okay to like anything they want.

And you can join the clothing revolution too with a pretty sweet Offbeat Home discount…

Why this feminist mom is okay raising a princess

I feel like there's a certain trend in feminist parenting where we totally support little boys wearing dresses and sparkles… but cringe a bit inside when a little girl wants to do it. Feminism and Queer-positive parenting is supposed to be about choice, and that sometimes sometimes includes the choice to explore the identities of princess or a sparkly fairy.

Super colorful gender neutral kids clothes

I've totally gushed about UK-based children's boutique Love It Love It Love It on Offbeat Families before. I first found them via a reader comment back in 2009, and I've basically been dressing my son in their gender-neutral Scandanavian-influenced rainbow kid gear ever since. See, 90% of my kid's clothes come from the Goodwill, and cost 99 cents. The other 10%? They're euro-baby splurges from Love It Love It Love It. All my favorite pictures of Tavi? He's wearing their stuff…
