Do you guys remember the video of that 8-year old girl having a rant about gender-stereotypes when it comes to girls and boys clothing and how it absolutely makes no sense at all? You should watch it if you haven’t yet, she has just totally hit the nail on the head. Why do clothes have to look a certain way just based on whether it’s a girl or boy wearing them?
If I think back to when I was little, I was a real tomboy. People always thought I was a boy because I played football, had short hair and wore my brother’s old clothes (because I loved them, not because I had to). My worst nightmare was putting on a pair of tights when I had to every so often; there was nothing on earth I found more uncomfortable and I thought it just looked so ‘girly’. I hated it.
