Gender lines are not walls, they are meant to be crossed.
John Marcotte’s TED talk examines gender norms for kids in today’s pop culture. He specifically looks at girls and the feeling of empowerment that they receive from super heroes.

Marcotte’s main point is that labels are truly limiting the potential of future generations, for both boys and girls.
