The video is a representation of children's book by Karleen Pendleton Jiménez. It is about a little latin@ child named Alex who does and likes "boy" things and gets bullied for it because she's female. The story is told just like a children's book, its clear and simple and makes little kids question things and in the end they are supposed to learn a valuable lesson. Put simply, the lesson is that there aren't supposed to be "boy" and "girl" things and that everyone should be free to be who they are and like what they want. I appreciated the video because in sense it's a reflection of my own life. I wish I would have had hair like Alex when I was a kid, I waited years before cutting my hair off because of fear of being bullied for not just liking "boy" things but for looking like a boy too. Although it seems rare to have kids acting like the "opposite sex," children seem to be pretty inclined to explore different things. Restrictions and rules are applied in school and at home and become internalized in a child's head.
There are other examples of authors writing children's book with similar messages. It is interesting to see how young children think about and act out gender. Tools like these should be used to not just deconstruct gender rolls among children but to stop them from developing in the first place. It seems like gender is stamped on a child as soon as the parents know what the sex of the baby is, and they become more and more gendered as kids go through grade school.
