Why I Don't Like Superheroes

They're like boys' Barbies. I don't want my dark-haired, almond-eyed son to think he has to be an over-testosteroned white guy to be valuable.

In fact, I don't want anyone to think that.

Is there a superhero that he is getting interested in?

I have always sort of liked Pokemon because the two guys--Ash and Brock--are so obviously Asian. (I can't remember what the girl looks like.)

Dear Anonymous,
It was just a random thought I had, thinking about what "normal" kids are interested in these days. It started with a comment I made on Tonggu Momma's post.

(I know Pokemon et al was created in Japan but I don't know much else.)
