Emma Palmer is a 36 year old inside fashioner from London and she as of late shared a picture of a trademark she found on a tee shirt in a Disney Store at the Westfield London mall. The youngsters’ shirt had a trademark that read ‘shoes talk louder than words,’ with a splendid, glittery high foot rear area on the front.
Emma, who is a mother to a 6-year-old little girl and additionally a three-year-old child, said the message on the shirt was ‘obsolete.’
‘I saw this embarrassment of a T-shirt at the Disney store in Westfield yesterday, aimed at young girls, this is just everything that is wrong with messaging to girls in a nutshell..It’s 2018 .. Surely it is widely recognized that the content of your mind and words you speak are WAAAAAY more important than your f*****g shoes! *Facepalm*’. She posted this on Facebook.
She also said for BuzzFeed News: ‘The messages you give to a girl should be about what they’re thinking, their intelligence, and what they have to say – not what they look like.’
‘I understand it is fun to dress up, to wear makeup, and to have nice things – but the point is at no point do I chose that as a substitute for a brain, or for what I have to say.’
While Emma has numerous supporters behind her in the push to dispose of the tee shirt, there are other people who are shielding the shirt by saying it should be clever and charming and not intended to take away a lady’s voice.
She said: ‘though some may see the T-shirt’s words as a harmless quip or joke [it is one of] many, many ridiculous, mind-numbing, intelligence-zapping, vacuous messages targeted to young girls.’
‘I don’t want to make my girl into a boy and I don’t want to make my boy into a girl. I just want them to know that whatever they want to do and whatever they are interested in is OK.’
In spite of the fact that Disney did not quickly react to media comments on this topic, Emma said that they got back to her on Facebook. ‘They have sent [my message] to the relevant department and will get back to me within five days.’
Despite all that has been said about this, the shirt is still on Disney Store’s United Kingdom website for four pounds.
