Well, I was actually feeling quite mellow and cheery, having just written a blogpost meandering down memory lane which you will read at a later date.
Then I looked at Jennie's blog, because I always hang on her every word and what I saw there made me very angry indeed.
She pointed out this on the Early Learning Centre website. It's their dressing up outfit page.
Who the mucky duck (rhyming slang, don't you know) do the Early Learning Centre think they are marketing their dressing up outfits in such an appallingly outdated and misogynistic way?
Conditioning 3 year olds into thinking that girls are nurses and boys are doctors is an absolute outrage. I kind of thought we'd moved on.
How very dare they try to limit the ambitions of girls and the expectations of boys who are barely out of nappies?
I showed it to Anna who commented that that "wasn't very nice." Although she does like cuddly, pink and sparkly things, she also loves Doctor Who, planets and dinosaurs.
If you are similarly outraged, please complain to them here. Please also join me in refusing to buy anything from them until they change that wording.
