Cuento infantil para un mundo sin los estereotipos del género masculino. Si me preguntan si creo que existe vida en otro planeta, respondería que sí. No digo una vida como la nuestra, (eso no lo sé) pero en un universo infinito me parece imposible que estemos solos. Lo mismo creo de la gente, somos más de 7 mil millones de personas en el mundo y todas tan complejas y únicas. La diversidad es una de nuestras características como especie. Aún así, a lo largo de la historia, han intentado de todas las formas posibles unificarnos y en los casos en que lo han logrado (aparentemente) los resultados han sido desastrosos para esos seres y para todos los demás en realidad. Quise escribir este cuento por un artículo que me mandó una amiga sobre la masculinidad 'tradicional' y también por mi propia experiencia como madre de dos niños hombres en una familia que no juega a los roles de comercial de t.v. Deseamos vivir en un mundo sin estereotipos, en el que sea posible ser. Cuento de A que te cuento.Show more

Esther is a middle child, in her own mind a pale reflection of siblings who are bright, shining stars. Her mother doesn't show the slightest bit of interest, no matter what Esther does. Still, she's content to go back to school, do her best, hang out with her friends, and let others take care of things. But her best friends aren't AT school when she gets there. Why didn't they tell her they wouldn't be coming back? Why were they silent all summer? But stuff like that happens. And it's bad luck that her new teacher makes Esther the butt of all kinds of jokes. Mrs. Pollock is rumored to be an ogre-and maybe she IS one. Could be. Then things go from unfortunate to outright dangerous. The mountains surrounding the school-usually sparkling with glaciers and lakes, alive with Faeries, and sheltering a quaint town with really great bakeries-are now crowded with Shadow Mages, casting a noticeable pall, and clearly-to Esther- signifying something very dark and threatening. As the people she might have depended on to help are either strangely absent or in hiding, it's left to ordinary, middle-child Esther ("just Esther") to act. But she'll have to burst out of the box of mediocrity she's been put in, and do something absolutely extraordinary.Show more
