I'm new posting here, and I'm also in the July DDC.
I have one son who will be 3 in April and another baby boy on the way...I'm so happy I love my little boy and can't wait to have another little Mommy's boy.
I thought of this when I read the gender post..and it's something that has bothered me since before I had my first son.
I noticed that when you go to any kind of place that sells baby clothes, the girls section is ALWAYS NOTICEABLY LARGER then the boy's section.
And it's not by a little either...it's by a LOT.
I went to the Carter's outlet and they had this huge sale, so I got some clothes for my son and for baby on the way and I went thru about three racks and there I was at girls clothes.
It extended to the end of the store!
The selection is so weak compared to girl's stuff...do they think nobody has boys?!
I don't find any difference on the cuteness factor, if anything I think boys clothes are cuter little bow ties and what not..haha, but it bugs me bad that the selection is not as broad and it's like that everywhere you go!
I don't understand it whatsoever....it just doesn't make sense.
At Babies R Us it's really bad, they have about four racks for newborns and over half a store for girls.
Do these people think baby boys don't need to be clothed also or something?
I have 2 girls, and I hve noticed that while shopping for them that the little boys section has nothing really in it. I find that at Old Navy they carry a large selection of boys things. I often worndered why they do this as well?!
(RANT) Because... girls clothes sell more than boys.. because society dresses up the girls more than the boys... The good news is as it's market driven, we have the opportunity to stop the madness.. But obviously the real frustration is in the fact this our reality and it's not stopping... yet everyone says it "equal." (Sorry for my little rant... it's upsetting to me too because people won't quite dressing their little girls like dolls and continue to objectify girls... I want that to stop but it's in our power and the majority are still doing it. I don't want boys to have to through this by me wanting "equality.")
