Even if we can suspend the notion that body parts can be fashion accessories, this Vogue piece wreaks of 'columbusing': The art Of discovering something that is not new.

With kids growing up surrounded by advertising, movies and TV, toys, books, and clothes that tell them that some things are for girls, and others are for boys, we're already fighting an uphill battle if our goal is to raise girls who know that they can solve tough, real world problems, and boys who are interested in collaboration, not just competition.
