I don’t get offended by shit like “boys are stupid” or “boys are gross” or even “kill boys” or anything like that because i get the fact that it isn’t sexist because dudes are in power and it’s not like people are actually out killing guys for being guys. there’s literally no reason to get offended by that kind of stuff. you’re not going to offend me by telling me how much you hate my gender or what you think of my gender.

it’s just dumb when it becomes “no, don’t enjoy boys, don’t post pictures of boys, don’t reblog pictures of boys” because then that’s becoming the policing of what people like / what people post on their blogs, regardless of their own personal gender or preferences

I think we should make 2014 the summer of boys in pretty floral dresses and big goth boots

Up for for this

sorry but im rly sick of this.

im sick of seeing boys worshipped for doing things that arent safe for all girls to do.

boys get enough exposure as it is let’s not have a summer of them

did i miss a thing or is there something inherently wrong with people enjoying pictures of dudes wearing dresses and boots

because i tried looking into this and couldnt find anything so i think it’s pretty fair for me to see this and wonder if people aren’t just misinterpreting it as problematic or are just doing that thing where they blow off steam but do it in a way that discourages people from wearing things they like/doing things they like to do that aren’t harmful anyway

No one here is saying boys shouldn’t wear pretty dresses or that people shouldn’t like boys wearing pretty dresses. That’s not something that’s even mentioned up above. The anger/frustration is purely aimed towards 'seeing boys worshipped for doing things that arent safe for all girls to do.'

The bigger issue is giving boys more credit for ‘daring’ fashion items than girls. The bigger issue is boys being praised for being ‘so brave’ when girls still get shat on for their fashion choices. The bigger issue is wanting to have this summer be all about BOYS, when boys get enough attention already. The bigger issue is that usually when people talk about boys in cute dresses, they only want a certain type of boy to be in that dress. I’m not going to ASSUME that OP would hate seeing a fat boy in a dress, but given the amount of hate that fat girls get, I can guess that a lot of people would not want to see a fat boy in a dress.

I could honestly go on, but I wouldn’t want to bore people. People should be able to wear whatever they want without criticism, REGARDLESS of sex, gender, or physical body. And I feel like that’s something the ‘boys in crop tops’ and ‘boys in cute dresses’ movements do not support, because frequently it’s just boring objectification of conventionally attractive men instead of an actual movement to get men to embrace ‘feminine’ fashion trends, or even a movement to get dresses and skirts to actually BE an androgynous fashion choice. 

There’s enough stuff in this world that revolves around men, I don’t want this summer’s fashion trends to revolve around them also.

well the thing is just that

yeah nobody above said that people shouldn’t like boys wearing pretty dresses or that boys shouldn’t wear pretty dresses, but just judging from those posts above, it seriously comes off that way. the above posts are awfully “no, don’t enjoy that, stop it right now

and yeah, maybe that’s presumptuous of me, but the OP never mentioned “worshiping boys” or “giving them more credit than girls” so the above posts are pretty presumptuous themselves? especially since the OP made a reply later that said the original post was talking to their own personal friends about making plans to wear flowery dresses and goth boots and the sudden influx of replies made the OP kind of taken aback. like, the original post was seriously just “hey boys in dresses/boots” and immediately here comes somebody with “THIS MAKES ME SICK”

and that’s just

okay it was just stupidly abrasive

especially since you DEFINITELY don’t have to worry about boy’s fashion EVER becoming more of a focus than women’s fashion. aside from the fact that men’s fashion is nowhere near as beautiful and creative as women’s fashion (seriously i hate going to look for men’s fashion and never seeing anything but GODDAMN SUITS), but also because women’s fashion has always been a bigger commercial sellout than any men’s fashion spectacle

so can we just, like

stop discouraging people

PRAISE BE

Wendy’s is doing the same thing.

Will wonders never cease.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.

I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.

No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.

So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.

Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.

Yes, Bronies hijacking MLP and making girls feel out of place in it’s fandom / in the general vicinity of all things MLP is awful. I’m not going to argue that that isn’t awful, because it is.

But I’m going to be honest when I say that I don’t think people actually give a shit if the big corporate manager of McDonald’s or Wendy’s or whatever was actually convinced by people to stop sexually labeling toys  by any certain type of person, or by their own volition. The fact of the matter is that it was a long-standing, terrible tradition for them to sexually label the toys, “shaming” boys and girls into buying toys just because it was “appropriate for their gender”. Now they aren’t being shamed for it. They want to feel comfortable asking for a certain toy, or being asked about a certain toy, and they can.

Fuck the reason behind it, I’m just glad that my nephew or the child I might have in the future can look up at the cashier and ask for a pony or a fairy or a robot dinosaur and not be made, by that employee or any employee behind them, to believe that the toy is not appropriate for them. I’m going to celebrate that, and I hope that people aren’t discouraged from being happy about this because of the post above. It is, in fact, still worth being happy about. Smile, and be glad to smile.
