Girl shows how kids’ clothes are sexist in viral video

This story first appeared on

Daisy Edmonds, an eight-year-old from the U.K., ranted her way to Facebook fame this past weekend when her mom posted a video of the girl skewering gendered kids’ clothes at her local Tesco grocery store.

Sporting a karate gi and gesturing with the poise of a future women’s study prof, Edmonds paces racks of kids’ clothes. The boys’ shirts, she explains, read “Hero,” “Think Outside The Box” and “Desert Adventure Awaits,” while the girls shirts read simply “Hey,” “Beautiful” and “I Feel Fabulous.”

“Everyone thinks that girls should just be pretty and boys should just be adventurous, and I think that’s wrong,” she argues, “Why should boys and girls clothes even be separated? Because we’re just as good as each other!” We tend to agree, Daisy.
