Patriarchy hurts babies too - The Pursuit of Harpyness

Patriarchy hurts babies too - The Pursuit of Harpyness: "A man beat a 16-month-old boy to death for being too feminine last Sunday. Pedro Jones, 20, allegedly punched his girlfriend’s son Roy Jones (not related) repeatedly with closed fists and grabbed him by the neck while he was babysitting him. The child was in cardiac arrest when police arrived at the scene on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation on Long Island, NY, and he later died at the hospital. The elder Jones confessed the crime to troopers, saying he was “trying to make him act like a boy instead of a little girl.”

A little girl. I can almost hear the venom in his voice. The hatred. The disgust. A little girl: subhuman, vile."
