In these days of sensitive sexism naming, and offending comments, it seems we have reached new heights down below as a range of shoes (yes shoes!) has caused uproar among parents!
"Dolly Babe" shoes are being sold parallel to "Leader" shoes and guess which shoe is for boys and which shoe is for girls?! Once upon a time girls were girls, loved pink fluffy things, enjoyed being "girly" and did not mind playing with dolls, wearing Barbie like clothes, and the clothes and shoes they wore were especially made and named for girls!
Nowadays, parents who buy footy shoes called "Leader" for their boys are being discriminated against because they should also have the right to buy "Dolly Babe" shoes for their boys too, and girls should have the right to wear "Leader" shoes.
Now the question is; what is all fucking fuss about? After all, if kids, boys or girls, want to wear "Dolly Babe" shoes, what's the problem? And if girls or boys want to be "Leaders" and their parents buy them "Leader" shoes, what's the problem?
The Kinks once wrote a song back in the sixties called "Lola" and here's a line from it; "Boys will be girls and girls will be boys!"
Parents and society in general have accepted the fact that not everybody is quite what society expects them to be and the clothing/shoe industry has adapted to that! So why the fuck are people getting their knickers (blue for boys and pink for girls or vice versa!) in a twist about a pair of kiddies shoes?
Maybe Dykes on bikes of Transgenders in the military can answer that one...
