Ugh (Or, cultural appropriation in children’s decor)

TW: Talk of pregnancy.

We started looking at/purchasing some stuff for the nursery this weekend. Even though we know the sex, we are going fairly gender neutral on decor, painting the room green with yellow accents. We thought an animal theme would be good for gender neutral, and the two main options there are jungle/zoo animals or woodland animals.

Well, jungle animals it is. I was actually leaning toward woodland because of my penchant for foxes, but half the stuff with woodland animals also has teepees, bows and arrows, feathers and dreamcatchers on it. Even if we are more selective, other folks probably wouldn’t be.

Is this for real, in 2019? This stuff is *everywhere* not just at a few places. Target, Walmart, BuyBuyBaby. The only place I didn’t see it was IKEA, so I’m glad I already planned to buy as much as possible there.

I just... wow.
