My daughters should not have a truck grabbed out of their hands by an adult and handed to a male cousin because, “This is a boy toy anyway.”
My son shouldn’t be ridiculed because his favorite color is pink.

And also is that kid wearing a TARDIS t-shirt? These kids are my favorite people right now.
i work in a major retail store that, while not selling toys, sells a fuckton of children’s clothes and accessories. every time i have to cashier by the kids’ section, i have a headache by the time i clock out from spending hours seething with rage over gendered clothing that we sell, over parents who won’t buy their daughter an umbrella because it’s spongebob and not dora, over the fact that boys get sunglasses and hats and backpacks marketed to them while girls get disney princess makeup sets, over the way that the girls’ section is entirely devoid of anything having to do with pixar’s cars or the avengers or basically anything that’s not cinderella and sleeping beauty or justin bieber, over the disgustingly noticeable absence of black widow from all of the avengers shirts and merchandise. everything about it is fucked up.
