Even kindergartners recognize just how revolutionary “Wonder Woman” is.
On Sunday, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins tweeted a screenshot of a list of “cute Wonder Woman related things” that happened in one kindergarten classroom after the superhero film hit theaters. According to Jenkins’ tweet, her producer received the bulleted list from someone who works in a kindergarten class.
“I work at a kindergarten and this is a collection of cute Wonder Woman related things that happened within a week of the movie being released,” the top of the list reads.
“Cute” doesn’t even begin to describe the list ― insanely, aw-inducing adorable is more like it.
The list includes 11 bullet points, all describing different interactions between kindergartners about Wonder Woman and her awesome Amazonian powers.
“There is one girl that refuses to listen to you unless you address her as Wonder Woman,” one of the points reads. Another (truly amazing) interaction included in the list reads: “A boy threw his candy wrapping in the floor and a 5-year-old girl screamed ‘DON’T POLLUTE YOU IDIOT, THAT IS WHY THERE ARE NO MEN IN TEMYSCIRA [sic].’”
In the caption of her tweet, Jenkins wrote: “This makes every hard day worth it. Thank you to whomever wrote it!!”

As of Monday morning, the tweet had already received over 25,000 retweets and 57,000 likes.

I work at a kindergarten and this is a collection of cute Wonder Woman related things that happened within a week of the movie being released.
On Monday, a boy who was obsessed with Iron Man, told me he had asked his parents for a new Wonder Woman lunchbox.
A little girl said “When I grow up I want to speak hundreds of languages like Diana”
This girl had her parents revamp her Beauty and the Beast birthday party in THREE DAYs because she simply had to have a Wonder Woman party.
Seven girls playing together during recess on Tuesday, saying that since they all wanted to be Wonder Woman they had agreed to be Amazons and not fight but work together to defeat evil.
There is one girl that refuses to listen to you unless you address her as Wonder Woman.
Another girl very seriously asked the teacher if she could ditch her uniform for the Wonder Woman armor bc [sic] she “wanted to be ready if she needed to save the world.” The teacher laughed and said it was okay, and the next day the girl came dresses as Wonder Woman and not a single kid batted an eye.
They are making a warp-up dance show, and they asked the teacher if they could come as superheroes, they are going to sing a song about bunnies.
This kid got angry and threw a plastic car over his head and a girl gasped “LIKE IN THE MOVIE”
A boy threw his candy wrapping in the floor and a 5-year-old girl screamed “DON’T POLLUTE YOU IDIOT, THAT IS WHY THERE ARE NO MEN IN TEMYSCIRA [sic]”
On Wednesday, a girl came with a printed list of every single female superhero and her powers, to avoid any trouble when deciding roles at recess.
I was talking to one of the girls that hadn’t seen the movie, and the next day she came and very seriously told me “you were right, Wonder Woman was way better than Frozen.”
At the end of the list, the kindergarten worker reminded Jenkins and the “Wonder Woman” crew just how impactful this film and others like it can be.
“Consider this your friendly reminder that if this movie completely changed the way these girls and boys thought about themselves and the world in a week,” the person wrote. “Imagine what the next generation will achieve if we give them more movies like Wonder Woman.”
The original post seems to originate from Tumblr user Hot Latino Space Rebel and was published Saturday night. The Tumblr user identifies herself as a 20-year-old person named Kassel. In a follow-up to her original Tumblr post, Kassel wrote that she was so happy for all of the attention her post had received.
“What makes the impact of Wonder Woman so amazing is that even without [all of] these children actually watching the movie, it has changed the way they play games, the way they view superheroes, the way they interact with each other,” Kassel wrote. “...This is why female-led films are so important. Because media shapes the environment in which children grow up.”
Wonder Woman herself ― a.k.a. actress Gal Gadot ― retweeted the list, adding “Wow the last paragraph really gave me the chills. So true. So powerful. Gives me a huge drive to dive in and work on the next one.”
Oh, the possibilities.
