Here's a set of gendered crayons from Melissa and Doug, whose image is of a cool, progressive toymaker. I found the "Truck Crayon Set" and "Princess Crayon Set" in the gift-shop at the Rochester, NY Hyatt yesterday, after checking in for the RIT appearance that I'm doing with Charlie Stross later today (tell your friends!).
One thing that surprised me about parenting was how gendered EVERYTHING is: gendered diapers, bottles, wipes -- even kid toothpaste comes in princess or butch action-dude versions.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
