|Why can I buy a Rey costume at the Disney store, but no Rey t-shirts at Target?|
My question is--when did dinosaurs become a "boy" thing, one that girls are subtly excluded from so far as clothing manufacturers and stores are concerned? Of course, it's not just dinosaurs. It's also Star Wars, dragons, and other fun, geeky things that many people, male and female, love. I have plenty of Star Wars and Game of Thrones t-shirts, all of which I bought for myself in the men's clothing section. I know other geeky/nerdy women who do the same thing (I've even seen other ladies wearing my same shirt at events). If on the off chance there is a Star Wars shirt in the women's section, it's of course in the same wretched thin, flimsy material they make all women's clothes out of these days. You know, the stuff ends up practically see-through after a couple of washes. What I wouldn't give for a geeky women's shirt made from real t-shirt material! And some dinosaur-themed girls t-shirts!
|She loves Star Wars, too!|
Until children's clothing designers and stores get a clue and make dinosaur shirts for girls and Game of Thrones shirts for women, it looks like my daughter and I will be crossing the aisle (or buying t-shirt from Amazon, who seems happy to carry dinosaur shirts for girls). I want my daughter to grow up knowing that dinosaurs and Star Wars are hers, and she can wear them on her shirts if she wants, no matter what some idiot executive thinks little girls like.
