I'm sure by now you all know that Target has decided to move away from gender based signs.
I think it's pretty great. I love Target. I've always loved Target.
My daughter never paid attention to those signs anyway.
I mean, you guys know how she wandered into the "boy" section to get a Jurassic World and Minecraft shirt.
It doesn't bother her. Never has.
She loves Minecraft even though some kids have told her it's "for boys only."
She picked out her backpack even though she knows many boys have the same one. She doesn't care.
She got her lunchbox in what would have probably been the "boy" section. There were a bunch of pink, purple, and yellow lunch boxes and then the colors started to get darker.
Natalie doesn't care. She would never NOT get something just because it's in the BOY area. She has many Legos that aren't pink and purple.
Some people are upset that the signs are going away. I don't understand this. We really don't care one way or another because of the reasons I listed--BUT if it makes another kid feel comfortable, why not?
Ahh, Target. You might make my husband go, "You spent HOW MUCH?" on a weekly basis, but to me, you'll always be my favorite.
