    How dare they have had idealism that they could make a better culture for children. Let’s make fun of them.

    I would like to throw three raw eggs onto the roof.

    ME (Who grew up in crummy little red-neck towns, went to bad public schools): I heard about the anniversary of this album called “Free To Be You And Me” on a podcast. Apparently it had all these songs about how it’s OK for boys to play with dolls and stuff.

    MY GIRLFRIEND (Who grew up in upper middle class suburbs, went to high quality private schools): I loved that album when I was a kid! I listened to it all the time. You never heard of it?

    ME: If I got caught listening to something like that when I was a kid, I would have gotten my ass kicked.

      Don’t get the idea that this was some private school thing. I never heard the album but the movie was shown every year in public grade school. Granted, in Madison, WI, which is basically Portland with more snow.

      i remember marlo thomas’s special airing in prime time on broadcast tv– not terribly upper-class, as it was free to anyone who had access to that channel at that time…

    I hope I wasn’t the only one who, at first, thought “do stuff” was a euphemism for masturbation (instead of what I finally decided, a set of pretty much everything which also includes that).

    A pity it has that one crude scatological word in it otherwise it would be delightful for children to watch.
