    Campaigners call on parents to BOYCOTT Tesco and Mothercare over 'harmful' gender stereotyping with their 'sexist' marketing of children's clothes
    • Campaign group Let Clothes Be Clothes have called out Tesco and Mothercare
    • Tesco is selling 'Airtred soles' for boys and 'Sensitive Soles' for girls online
    • While Mothercare has released 'Space Oddity' and 'Nature Explorer' collections
    • Campaigners say the brands are promoting 'harmful' gender stereotypes

    Campaigners are urging shoppers to boycott Tesco and Mothercare after the retail giants were accused of promoting 'harmful' gender stereotypes.

    The children's clothing providers have come under fire from parents after marketing products specifically aimed at girls and boys.

    Francesca Cambridge Mallen, founder of the Let Clothes Be Clothes campaign, took to Facebook to accuse Tesco of 'everyday sexism' after spotting that their school shoes were divided into 'Airtred soles' for boys and 'Sensitive Soles' for girls.

    It comes after the group blasted Mothercare for a girls' clothing line featuring slogans like 'confetti, glitter, sparkle', while the boys' versions were science-themed and emblazoned with words like 'genius'.

    Campaigners have slammed Tesco after spotting that their school shoes were divided into 'Airtred soles' for boys, featuring a dinosaur, and 'Sensitive Soles' for girls, with a butterfly

    Tesco was targeted after promoting boys' shoes which feature a yellow dinosaur on the sole, while the female version are adorned with a pink butterfly. The image prompted a flurry of furious comments on the campaign group's Facebook post.

    One wrote: 'Tesco are you kidding me' and vowed to boycott their products.

    Eva Hoffmann declared the brand was 'out of the race for school shoes,' adding: 'Who comes up with this nonsense?'

    Others said it was 'harmful' to divide products into girls and boys categories, writing: 'I'm assuming Airtred & Sensitive Sole are actually the same thing too?'

    The campaign group also called out Mothercare this week, over its Nature Explorer collection aimed at girls and its Space Oddity collection aimed at boys.

    Featuring pink, glitter and floral patterns, Nature Explorer is aimed at the 'little girl spreading her wings' while Space Oddity is described as an 'out of this world collection for boys filled with stars, planets and science themes'.

    Furious parents have taken to Facebook to complain about the Tesco children's shoes, with mother Sarge Marge writing: 'Why can't it just be Airtred for everyone?'

    Posting on Facebook, one campaigner wrote: 'I've never called for a boycott before but since Mothercare UK continually promote such harmful ideas, action is needed. Surely their designers grimace at such outdated ideas?'

    The post attracted hundreds of likes and comments, with customers labelling the designs and 'lazy' and 'absurdly dated'.

    Sarah Jackson wrote: 'We're moving backwards not forwards with all this rubbish! I grew up in the 70s and 80s... no pink glittery tat available and that was great! Honestly, why do people buy this stuff'

    One said she had been left 'steaming' and had left Mothercare a 'furious message'.

    The campaign group was equally enraged by two Mothercare childrenswear collections - Nature Explorer for girls and Space Oddity for boys - and wrote about it on Facebook

    [​IMG]

    Francesca Cambridge Mallen told MailOnline: 'This week both Mothercare and Tesco have tried to show that it is still acceptable to use sexism in the marketing of childrenswear, but for how long?

    'Many of their potential customers we spoke to are prepared to take their spending power elsewhere, and we hope the message is clear - people are angry about this. At a time when parental equality has made such excellent ground, it seems unwise for a company called 'Mothercare' to represent such 1950's views.

    'Tesco may also find it worthwhile spending time with actual children to see just how similar their needs and interests are.'

    Space Oddity is described as an 'out of this world collection for boys filled with stars, planets and science themes (left, a shirt reading 'Genius' and right, 'My daddy is the cleverest')

    Critics suggested the slogans on girls' sweaters perpetuated 'absurdly dated' stereotypes

    The post, shared on the Facebook page Let Clothes be Clothes, attracted hundreds of likes and comments, with customers labelling the designs and 'lazy' and 'absurdly dated'

    [​IMG]

    Featuring pink, glitter and floral patterns, Nature Explorer is aimed at the 'little girl spreading her wings' - prompting social media commentators to accuse Mothercare of sexism

    Francesca added: 'SEO and targeted marketing is no excuse for perpetuating the notion that girls are sensitive butterflies, eager to please and look beautiful, while being a boy means you are a genius.

    'Space and the Sciences aren't just for boys, and girls weren't born with a natural inclination towards pink or flowers. As a society, including through our retailers, our media and in everything that targets children, we should have equality.

    'We should demand better for our children.'

    A Tesco spokesperson said: 'We have listened to feedback from our customers and will be updating the wording on our website.'

    :lol The thick cnut should ask for his money back he looks more like David Brent.

    Reminds me of that age old joke when a fella goes into the barbers and asks for a Tony Curtis.
    So the Barber shaves off all his hair, the fella says that's not a Tony Curtis.
    The Barber replies yes it is, him out of the 'king and I'.

    Not that it really makes much of a difference to just how big an arsehole the person who left that note on the ambulance is, but I read somewhere the other day that the patient the ambulance had been treating died.

    The other fella says he's disgusted with himself too, funny how they have to be 'outed' before apologising the cnuts.

    "That's the price I'm absolutely willing to pay"

    Wonder what would happen if a bloke replied "My reputation has been earned over a lifetime and I don't want it to be ruined in a second by some woman with a grudge. If some women have to be raped along the way, that's a price I'm willing to pay"

    She seems to equate losing your job, being wrongly branded a sex offender, losing your friends and family and possibly put in prison with 'your reputation taking a hit'.

    Unbelievable.

    She also rather bizarrely believes that if an innocent man loses his job, it is she who pays the price. How, exactly?

    Apparently when she was 11 years old, she let a boy put his hands down the front of her knickers. A girl friend found out and called her a slut, and since that day she has hated all men with a vengeance. Lovely.

    I've not heard of Emily Linden before so had to look her up

    I think she is incredibly brave in trying to do something positive about situations some females find themselves in and therefore deserves our support

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/sep/21/unslut-project-against-sexual-bullying

    Her comment was misguided - but after reading the article you can understand why she said it

    Her comment was more than 'misguided', mate. It was full of absolute hatred for men and her follow-up tweets show she had no remorse about saying it and refused to back down despite almost the whole of twitter coming down on her like a ton of bricks.

    I can indeed understand why she said it, it's because she's a fucking horrible cunt.

    And then decide who is the more misguided

    Her -- or you

    I read the article this afternoon before you posted the link - the clue was when I posted...

    "Apparently when she was 11 years old, she let a boy put his hands down the front of her knickers. A girl friend found out and called her a slut, and since that day she has hated all men with a vengeance. Lovely."

    I really don't see how anyone can read that article and suddenly understand why she said what she did in her tweet. In it she explains how she was slut-shamed as a young girl, that is of course a horrible thing but it was her female 'friends' who were the attackers. She was never sexually assaulted by a male, she clearly states that she let the boy put his hand in her knickers.

    So no, that doesn't explain why she displayed such a bitter hatred towards innocent men with her tweet today. Maybe you could enlighten us otherwise?

    Of all the many responses I've read on twitter, I have to say that you are quite clearly the only person I've read so far who sympathises with her. There are currently over 1,650 comments replying to this article about her tweet

    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...ned-about-false-sexual-harassment-claims.html

    have a read through and see if you can find just one who shares your views. Good luck with that. Of course, this doesn't mean you aren't right, it could well be that every other single person is wrong :p

    She's managed to do something that is rarely seen nowadays - she's managed to piss off absolutely everyone. Men, women, fellow feminists, the fucking lot :lol

    The scary thing is, is that she writes for a teen magazine (TeenVogue), so fuck knows what anti-male poison she's been injecting in to the minds of young girls.

    This lady sums it up perfectly I think....

    Anybody see that video this week where the old Aussie guy on a bike says to a woman pedestrian walking by, ' nice set of boobs you've got' , she replies 'what did you say' and he repeats it, when she mentions she's wearing a cam he replies 'sorry' lol.

    She probably has more to complain about than Lindin but doesn't carry on half as much.
    I'm glad to see all and sundry coming down on her because you can't tar everybody with the same brush just because of a mistake 'SHE' made herself, I'm just glad the boy she invited down her draws wasn't black otherwise ww3 would break out.
