A campaign group has won its battle to persuade a major supermarket to remove "sexist" children's clothing from its 500 stores.Now, who do you think is doing this?
Oh, you guessed right – it’s our old friends, the Pinkstinks mob again.
What are they complaining about? Bunny costumes for five-year-olds?
The Lewisham-based organisation Pinkstinks complained to Sainsbury's three weeks ago about a range of children's clothing which included a doctor's coat with the word 'boy' written on it.That’s it?
Other items included a pilot, superhero and soldier outfit labelled 'boy' and a 1940s nurse outfit labelled 'girl'.
People have time on their hands to whine about this?
Pinkstinks co-founder Abi Moore said: “We asked what sort of sexist message this was sending to girls about what they are fit for and what their aspirations might be."Let’s hope their aspirations are to be more than a whining victim, forever complaining when things don’t go 100% their way, eh? Like you.
She added: "One of our most popular role models is Flight Lieutenant Kirsty Moore, the RAF's first female Red Arrows pilot.Well done! I bet you feel proud of yourselves, striking such a blow for womanhood!
"This is an amazing achievement and yet Sainsbury’s pilots’ outfits were also labelled ‘boy’, as were the army outfits - even though women have been fighting alongside men at the front line for years.
“We simply drew to Sainsbury’s attention the fact it would be a hugely confident and independent little girl who would dare risk the ridicule of her friends by asking for a costume in-store clearly ‘meant’ for boys."
Why, there’s Kirsty Moore, out there at mach 2, doing an incredibly skilled and dangerous job and then there’s you (and your equally-irritating harridan friend), writing letters to supermarkets whining about labels.
Truly, I don’t know who is the better role model for womankind…
This week Sainsbury's agreed to remove this range of clothing and announced it will use "non-gender specific" labels on its new children's costume range on sale in July.Oh, well done. Now, you are on the hook for every barmy idea this ditzy bitch gets into her head.
A spokesman for the company said: "We made the change as we feel it isn't acceptable to suggest that certain professions are the reserve of any gender."
Don’t expect any sympathy when she starts writing to you demanding that all your wrapping paper and birthday cards be devoid of kittens and fairies and kiddies birthday cakes come in a unisex shade of grey icing.
You opened the door…
