I wear glasses, my other half wears glasses, my two eldest wear glasses so I pretty much might as well transfer a portion of my wages to Specsavers each month in advance. I like the convenience of Specsavers, but what I DON'T like is this.
Oh no, Specsavers. Please don't do this. I have just spent twenty minutes telling my 9yr old daughter that if she wants a pair of glasses that are in the boys section, she can damn well have them. Her response? "But it's the BOYS section"
As I'm sure you can imagine, the boys section has glasses with Marvel, Planes and even Toy Story on them. The girls section has Disney Princesses and Moshi Monsters. (well it did, I mixed it up a bit)
Why, oh why, in 2015 must I be writing about this? Why can't they go back to having a KIDS SECTION? Which they have done in the past?
If my daughter wants glasses with Marvel comic heroes on them, why does Specsavers say that she shouldn't have them? Why must they only be for BOYS?
Why must Moshi monsters or Disney Princesses be for girls? I say NO to this stereotyping, A KIDS SECTION, with glasses for ALL kids, that's what is needed, do you agree?
And please feel free to let Specsavers know that this is wrong, I would appreciate it. Leave your comments below too.
