here's a lot of talk about what are"girl" and "boy" interests in terms of everything from toys and clothes to what they can and want to be when they grow up.
That's why a photo of boys NASA tank tops in the girls section of a store lit up the Internet this week, and people have very mixed reactions to mom Katie Hinde's actions and what went down.
Hinde was shopping in a Target store and noticed that the girl's racks were filled with floral designs and pink and purple butterflies, but no NASA branded gear, as could be found in the boys' section.
So she decided to "fix" the situation herself.
“Did I just take a bunch of NASA tank tops from the boys section & put them in the girls section? Yes. Yes I did.”
There were some people who thought it was a very commendable act of resistance.
They brought up the fact that pink is often overwhelmingly the color of choice for girls, and that dolls are pretty much always a staple — probably because, you know, a lot of girls like dolls.
And this mom with three daughters couldn't have agreed more.
But for every positive comment, there were probably a dozen that completely disagreed with Hinde’s relocation project.
They had suggestions.
“Then walk across the aisle to the boys section. It’s not that hard I did it all the time with my daughter who loved Bob the Builder.”
And brought up the trouble for the workers.
“I hate to be the negative Nancy in all this but this is just making more work for the employees there. Trust me retail is annoying as it is.”
