    Default Vent-a-thon, week of Jan 4-10

    Share your frustrations for the week here. It's always good to get things off your chest!

    (Keep in mind this is for venting/ranting only, so no judging, please. Support only )

    Mind if I go first?


    Dear clothing design creators (including, but not limited to, thermal underwear):

    Please don't assume that all girls age 4 are the same size. Some girls are shaped differently. Just look around you. Ever noticed some 4-year olds have thicker arms, not those sticks you expect them to have to fit through those narrow openings you call sleeves on those rock star short sleeve/long sleeve combo shirts? And while you're at it, can you please, please, PLEASE go easy on the 'peace symbol'? I mean, it really doesn't need to be on every.single.item.of.clothing.and.accessory/backpack/sock/hat/piece of jewelry/shoe/underwear. It will be okay if it isn't on everything. I promise.

    Ditto the rock star theme on nearly everything. They are 4. They don't care about Justin Barber, or Beiber, or whatever his name is. They aren't teenagers yet, or even pre-teens (which I REFUSE to call "tweens," by the way ). That will come soon enough, so please be kind and don't rush it.

    As for the thermal underwear, can you guys pretty please with sugar on top make it for children of ALL sizes? Because my DD's weight and height are literally NOT listed on your chart on the back of the packages because she is in-between two sizes. One size is too small, the next size up is too large.

    And regarding hats, not all 4-year olds have teeny tiny pin heads. Some have bigger ones. K? Thanks

    Along the same lines as Mary, can clothing companies PLEASE stop putting skulls on everything for boys???? It drives me insane! Everything from underwear to shirts and hats. I even saw a CRIB set with skulls on it. Ridiculous!!

    Skulls? Sheesh. I guess they want our girls to be all peaceful, but our boys to be obsessed with death? *scratches head*

    Okay that's it. I'm starting a new line of clothing for kids.

    Haha! Do it! That just shows the gender stereotyping crap that goes on!

    Wow, Elizabeth. Just, wow.

    I'm speechless. (Probably because I'm having trouble getting my jaw up off the floor.)

    Yeah, I was pretty upset. I'm such an advocate for social assistance and justice, I just hate seeing it being misused. Now that I got it out, I'll probably delete it. just needed it off my chest.
