A tale I heard
Sarah Michelle Gellar on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and gender equality:
"A couple months ago maybe, my son was talking about, he was 6 at the time, and he’s talking about how boys are strong and boys kick butt. And my daughter and my husband instantly go, 'You know girls can do that too,' and he’s like, 'But not the same.'
My husband said, ‘Well, are you sure? Have you ever seen mom?’ And he was like, 'What are you talking about?' My husband Googled a YouTube clip of, like, Buffy’s finest fighting moments, and it was so cute because my son’s eyes got so wide and he said, 'Mama, you could do that?!'"
