John Lewis has ditched gender labels on its kids clothing. God knows why.

Absolutely no argument with that.

The difference is between buying something and being sold something. More importantly, understanding that difference.

In the former, the customer is in control, in the latter, the business.

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
I see. Fair point but I would counter that with it being up to big businesses as to what they decide to sell

I think CB's point is that it's up to parents, not big business, to decide what's best for their children.

And the "fashion industry" IS big business and simply sees kids as another market - one which the earlier they can get to, the more profit they make.

Good post. Sadly we live in a society where too many people want to take parents rights away to discipline kids as they know better than Mum and Dad.
A big screwed up social experiment

Bruuuno - kids cannot make their own choices and shouldn't be given the option to do so. If they were they'd eat ice cream all day and go to bed at 1am, they'd boycott school and jump in front of buses. Adults are here to teach these sponges what is right and wrong.

That's a but tin foil hat Mike, it's hardly as if people will refuse to dress their kid in gendered clothing from this moment onwards

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
By making it the norm for ((very) young) boys and girls to dress differently, you immediately kill off 50% of the hand-me-down non-market. That's a lot of money that belongs to big business.

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
Although I disagree with the reasons (pr stunt pandering to liberal social. Dria cynts) I kind of make them right - why should kids wear different cmon depending on their sex? Totally different story when they become adults and want to be sexually attractive but by then they can make their own choices

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
Male and female are the most common permutations from the genetic mutations that make ALL of us up, but they are not the only ones.

Many of the more extreme deviations from pure male or pure female probably either self-abort (as nature itself has worked out they are not viable) or live with the physical aspects of one sex, but the mental aspects of another.

Again, the amount of deviation and difference between physical and mental state will drive people to act or not act as they feel fit.

However, it is ALL NATURAL, even if you can't handle that fact - nature doesn't exist to make YOU feel good.

I do, though, agree with the sentiment of "Just get on with your own life and fuck off out of my face". Don't EVER try to make YOUR problems MY problems- like nature, I'M not here for YOUR benefit.

Yes: male

No; female

It's probably best not to call your newborn a boy or a girl until you know for sure, otherwise it puts too much undue pressure for the poor child to conform to your bigoted views of gender.

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
For several hundred years boys in Europe wore dresses until they were breeched ( this was the name given to the process of going from wearing a dress to the wearing of breeches ). The age at which boys were traditionally breeched varied from place to place and family to family but in some cases it took place as early as the second birthday and in others up to the age of eight.

I like the idea of John Lewis de gendering young children's clothing. It's kit for tots fuchrissake and unlike back in the days of breeching it does not favour one gender over another.

The future looks like it's going to either having your knob chopped off the missus wears a strap on, Some of posters probably do get the missus to wear a strap on now, so no change there then

The world has gone mad and it seems charities will probably miss out in future thanks to political correctness.

Did anyone see the below links stories? An NHS Trust refusing raised monies from a decades long bed push charity because the money was raised by men dressing up as nurses,. Then at charity flotilla a complaint of racism was made because four guys pretended to be the Jamaican Bobsleigh Team from Cool Runnings. Even the "real" team apparently are quoted as saying no malice was intended. The world has truly gone bonkers with too many busybodies.

The problem is the more extreme this becomes the more the majority will feel disenfranchised and start to look to people like putin etc as what else is there for them?

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
We are going through a phase in this Country of trying to eradicate anything that might upset a minority of people, we are pandering to their requests.

White middle class males are vilified as racist, homophobic and sexist.

I have no problems with people wanting to be different but why make us accept it and treat it like its normal? I don't agree with gay couples having children but as soon as I mention it I'm shot down.

I dread to think what state this Country will be in in 50 years.

It all starts in America then spreads here.
I know of someone whose daughter started at university a normal kid and has now declared herself a boy and even changed her name. It's like a fashion. Pathetic.

Re: The worlds gone mad - example #101
There really does seem to be a lot of overcorrecting and pandering at the moment to the lgbtttqqia crowd at the moment

People can be whatever they want. I've no problem with it at all. But people/ media seem to be falling over themselves at the moment to squeeze it into everything.
