Boys learn from their role models to act tough and aggressive and that showing vulnerability or emotion is equivalent to being weak or ”being a girl” (which is considered an insult in todays society). They are taught through these role models to ”man up” and that ”boys don’t cry”. Girls on the other hand learn early on that their greatest assets is to be beautiful. When my three years old son stopped crying because none of his heroes do , I had to take action because i think this is (excuse me) bullshit. I decided to draw ten soft super heroes and then strong princesses, just to give the kids some alternatives.
This coloring book is free, partly because i want no trouble with Marvel or DC comics but also so that I can reach out to as many kids as possible. As a cartoonist and a big comic book-fan myself I know the superheroes are emotional and complex characters, the problem is that in the kids editions they show only aggression and violence. If you like my ideas and wish to donate money to my future projects you can send it via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org Here are the ten Super-soft heroes and in a few weeks I will give you ten Super-strong Princesses. Thank you!

Till er i Sverige; om ni will swisha pengar till mina framtida projekt så kan ni göra det till detta numret 0735523201 men eftersom det inte går att koppla till mitt norska nummer så är det min pappas nummer som alltså skickar vidare till mig. Så om ni absolut vill busringa så står mitt nummer under info på Limpan-sidan, men ring inte honom. Okej? Tack.
