Our Children Are Listening
This series is about the awful things people say to children and that children overhear that shape our world. I am only scratching the surface: The misogynistic things, the homophobic, the toxic masculinity, the demeaning statements. Many made without a second thought. Things repeated sometimes for generations. Phrases like "Girls aren't good at math" or "Don't be a pussy." We've only just begun to really think about them or notice the affect they have on our society. This is my way of calling attention to them. The Thumper's Rule piece is still in progress as I'm fine tuning the Arduino housed inside it which will play sound when the sensor is triggered, but really this series is just beginning as I have lots more to explore.
