    I wonder about those little girls and what they’re being taught with all this. Is it really healthy for toddlers to be immersing themselves in songs about “getting money”?

      I think they turn out just fine, ease your mind, it will be alright.

        I am still uncomfortable with what they are doing/what is being done to them and what they could be learning from it.

        And the faint odor or man-splaining is wafting off of your response. Unless you are a woman–then it’s kind of woman-to-woman-splaining.

      Unless you go into complete isolation from society, it’s impossible to avoid problematic media. Even the media we do enjoy may sometimes have sexist, racist, homophobic, and capitalistic imagery. But as long as those kids know what really important, I don’t see the harm in letting them indulge in something they enjoy.

      And before you accuse *me* of mansplaining, I’m a woman.
