She Knows What’s Up

An 8-year-old girl has recently been filmed speaking about Tesco’s choice in t-shirt designs, and how there shouldn’t be a divide between the clothing for boys and girls.

It. Is. Wonderful.

Daisy from Wiltshire wasn’t exactly impressed. The girls’ clothes, as you could expect, had words like ‘beautiful’, ‘hey!’ and the phrase ‘I feel fabulous’. The boys were obviously on the idea of adventure and thinking. Even one t-shirt simply had the word ‘hero’ on it.

She makes a point that:

“It’s unfair because everyone thinks that girls should just be pretty and boys should just be adventurous… I think that’s wrong because why should boys’ and girls’ clothes even be separated?

We’re just as good as each other.”

As a small protest she put up the t-shirts in the girls’ section too, mixing the items.

The video has received over one million views, and rightly so.

Too much emphasis is put on what we wear, and whether it suits society’s predetermined gender role we’re put in.

But that’s none of my business.

Tesco got in touch with Daisy’s mother after the video had received attention, but initially had totally ignored the video.

Hopefully the newer designs will be to Daisy’s taste, and not like the previous ones.

I’m with her, what does ‘HEY!’ emblazoned on a shirt mean?
