When you're a first-time mother, everything feels huge and important. It's difficult to know what advice to follow or what timelines to pay attention to. Having a new baby is difficult enough without worrying about all the endless obligations and deadlines you (or your baby) are supposed to be meeting.
Working as a local lifeguard over the summer, I observed how feminism isn't solely a women's issue, but a male issue as well. I watched many young boys get teased by their friends with phrases like, "Don't be such a pussy" or "Be a man, stop crying" and my personal least-favorite, "You throw like a girl."
Facebook has been a boon to people like me who are curious about whatever became of -- ok -- everyone I ever met. I love it when Baby Boomers talk about navigating Facebook as if we are really tuned into modern technology. We brag about uploading a photo or unfriending someone as if we're Navajo Code Talkers.
