This is mini skirt and tights weather, according to Sainsburys. Either that, or girls really should just stay at home and be pretty… another rant, by me. Grrrr….
My husband and I were appalled today when we visted the Sainsbury’s Ipswich store and could find NOT ONE PAIR of sturdy, warm trousers for our daughter to wear when playing outside this winter.
In the adjoining aisles there were atleast twenty pairs of chinos, jeans, jogging bottoms and cords for the boys that would be appropriate for winter walks and physical play, but the girls section was full of mini skirts with tights and lightweight leggings.
I have no problem with putting my daughter in boys trousers to get the job done, but I shouldn’t have to. Neither should she EVER receive the message that because she’s a girl she doesn’t need sturdy clothing – but this is the message your clothing section gives her every time we visit.
In this day and age, it is simply unacceptable for my daughter to be discriminated against in this way by a major business that claims to be ‘ethical’. We won’t be buying any more childrens clothes from Sainsbury’s stores until this ridiculous genderisation of the childrens section is rectified.
Most sincerely, L Tamaya
