You know what’s amazing? When kids break gender stereotypes–and when parents encourage their sons and daughters to engage in activities that are typically not “meant” for them, such as encouraging a girl to skateboard. In 2016, if we still believe that certain sports are for boys only, then something is wrong.
This is why I love that fact that Fatherly posted this video of girls breaking gender stereotypes–the girls in the video completely exceeding at “boy” activities like karate, skateboarding, and sky-diving. The site posted the video on their Facebook page, and it quickly went viral, hitting 17,163,559 views as of now. It’s a no brainer why it garnered so much attention–parents are tired of the same old tropes and stereotypes.
