Kid's stuff: George the weather goddess

My mate Kyle gave my daughter a Storm funko pop figure to play with and she adores it. And after being told what her name was, she instantly decided this beautiful woman was called George, and that's the name that stuck.

The kid is a bit too young to have a decent discourse about the nature of colonization, and there is no doubt that Ororo is a proud name for a proud African woman. But we don't need to talk to the kid about the boring rigidity of gender roles, because Storm also makes a great George.
