Marks & Spencer is at the centre of a new sexism row for its decision to aim a range of dinosaur-themed children’s clothes — in partnership with the Natural History Museum — only at boys.So the ‘Let Clothes Be Clothes’ campaign group and someone from the ‘Women In Science and Engineering’s’ young women’s board immediately mounted their hobby horses and began rallying their shrill troops.
As happens after every tedious little slight these harridans pick up on, after a social media campaign, the company immediately gave in. Thereby ensuring that they will never, ever be free to do anything these unrepresentative groups don’t like.
Not to be outdone, the anti-racism mob needed to find something even stupider to die in a ditch over, and they managed it:
Argos faced “racism” accusations today after selling white dolls for £10 more than their equivalent £24.99 black and Asian ones./facepalm
The chain store apologised and blamed “a genuine online pricing error”. It added: “We are urgently rectifying this and can confirm all three dolls will be priced at £24.99.”So those who prefer a white doll won’t be gouged for an extra tenner? Result!
