As many parents know, kids clothing can be pretty old-fashioned / ridiculous when it comes to messages and gender roles. In short, boys equal superheroes, while girls equal pretty princesses waiting to be saved.
It's a fact not lost on Daisy Edmonds. While shopping at Tesco’s in the UK, the eight-year-old realised the glaring difference between boys and girls clothing options. In this viral Facebook video, she shares her insight on the stark division between the two, in a way that only kids can.
“It's unfair because everyone thinks that girls should just be pretty and boys should just be adventurous,” she says. “I think that’s wrong because why should boys and girls clothes even be separated. We’re just as good as each other.”
She also points out that the boys' clothing focuses on adventurous activity, while the girl’s tops had uninspiring phrases emblazoned upon them (like ‘Hey!’) that she just doesn’t understand.
In a cute act of rebellion, Daisy ends the video by placing the boys’ clothes in the girls section, chuckling away cheekily all the while. Keep up the empowering action, Daisy!
