For the 'Where do they come up with this crap? " file

Oi vey. If baby wigs to make sure our baby girls are living up to beauty standards enough to turn your stomach on the boys front we have misogyny for tots:



Which according to sideswipe is being sold in a Glenfield mall. Sometimes there really are no words.

One assumes it is referring to breastfeeding. But still...

The other day, I saw a young woman of about 15 or 16 wearing a shirt that said 'Chop me up' in giant letters. I suppose it was supposed to be cynical and cool but it just made me feel ill.

That's horrible.

I've seen onesies that say "I dig chicks" on them too. The design is quite cool, but the sentiment sucks.

How is it not misogyny?

Hmmm maybe someone is feeling bad for buying this for their kid? Cough Stephen cough.

stephen said...

Umm, how IS it misogyny?

Calling that misogyny is an insult to all misogynists.

It seems more like sexism than full-on misogyny to me.

But more importantly, it's just a really lame t-shirt, like a junior version of "It's not a bald spot; it's a solar panel for a sex machine."

Ok, I'll lay my cards on the table. Infant-wear bearing the slogan "I'm a tits man" is kinda dumb, and other than the fact that babies breastfeed, kinda sexist. Misogynist? nope.

I don't think degrading / deprecating the value of language is helpful to anyone's cause.

Also, OP, who are you and your supporting commentors speaking for? The baby's mothers or whoever dresses the child? Are they misogynists too?

Or are they just ignorant, and requiring ideological reeducation?

Hmmmmm... starting to sound like a brave new world to me.
