Weekly Warrior Queen Links #13



Hmm, for some reason this week is heavy on the motherhood posts .I'm okay with that, and I hope that you guys are, too. For me, as a warrior queen, the way we raise our daughters and sons are very important to me. I also believe the way we interact with children that are not our own is important. I've been noticing it a lot lately. I try my hardest to tell girls and boys to break gender stereotypes, yet when I explain the wiki sticks we have for our kid menus, I almost always tell the little girls they can make a butterfly or bracelet, rather than saying something more gender neutral.

Do you catch yourself doing things like that?

Also, many people have been sporting the WQ wristbands recently. I'm going to start sharing them on @beawarriorqueen on Instagram. Are you following? AND DO YOU WANT A WRISTBAND?



Dale Partridge is so inspiring. This article about things mothers should never say to their daughters is something I must always remember!

It's not uncommon to be unhappy with our bodies - these reasons on why to ditch the scale are so important to acknowledge.

I've shared the What's Underneath project by Style Like U before, but this video is too powerful to not share.

Nina reminds us the best (simple) ways to be happier.

I love what Samantha at Moving Peaces is doing with the month of October! She's doing 31 Days of Finding Self. 

Yvonne tackled a tough topic on her blog that might slip your mind when you find out you're pregnant - telling your friends and family who are unable to have kids.

I love these lessons that Alissa has learned in her 22 years. p.s. Happy Birthday, Alissa!

This satirical video called Rape: It's Your Fault in this Miss Information article is awesome.

Raising kind daughters starts at home.

Huffington Post was on it this week, and published this open letter to Target that all moms have been thinking about.

Who did you get dressed for this morning? I'm willing to bet it most likely wasn't to turn on the people around you.

  2. I am always catching myself in little gender stereotypes. We aren't perfect but as long as we are trying I think we are ahead of the pack!

  4. I'm always pretty gender neutral. Even when people make comments about / to my kids I'm pretty quick to correct them.

  5. Thanks for the great list of links! I don't really consciously think too much about the gender stereotype stuff with my son. I just let him take the lead on what he wants to play with (he's almost 2) and so far his favorite toys are sticks and a set of coasters ;-)

  10. I have to admit I ditched the scale because I never had one. And then I just didn't care. I know that's lucky and I have thin privilege to boot. But I've always found the whole measuring weight thing so... pointless.

  15. That is awesome! I think that it is easier with children that can talk through asking open ended questions. I like to let them guide the conversation

  16. Yes! I think that letting children take the lead is the most important!

  20. I agree on the pointlessness! I really think that your weight fluctuates constantly that to get a true idea of how much you weighed you'd have toweigh yourself every hour and average it!

  21. Good collection... I was glad that Yvonne wrote about the sensitive topic of announcing pregnancy... it's always good to be aware and empathetic of your audience. (I'm currently speaking from the viewpoint of trying, and being unsuccessful at becoming pregnant.) :/
