Mothers are adopting social media methods, calling on Target and Wal-Mart to choose a limited girl fashion.
A mother using the name Assignment:Mom shared her frustration with the target department store chain on Facebook.
“Dear goal, you know that I love you…but we need to talk about girls for a minute,” she wrote in a Facebook post that the post has received more than 6,000 responses. “More specifically, we need to talk about the services you have recently provided in the sportswear sector. It’s ridiculous.”
The four mothers in the Midwest continue to describe how she turned to Target to buy sports shorts for her nearly 10-year-old daughter who is going to the basketball camp.
However, my mother did not complain about wearing shorts for this girl. All she could find was “small, very small, too short shorts.”
“By definition, I think shorts are short. But where are the mid-length shorts? Shorts that are close to the knees? Those shorts that don’t require built-in underwear will undoubtedly make her feel uncomfortable?” She vented.
Mission: Mom, raising three daughters, said she tried the women’s department – but could not find anything.
“I don’t think I am very cautious, but I have no responsibility to teach my daughters to be modest and proper dress. We live in a culture full of sex; I hope I can buy my tween without worrying about her. The back or her underwear is wearing a pair of sports shorts,” she wrote on Facebook.
In the post, she said she eventually bought her daughter’s shorts in the boy’s section and begged Target to “make our girls do better.”
Homework: Mom told Fox News, “I don’t have any maliciousness about Target. I know I am free to shop elsewhere (and I do.) But she added that she’s “disappointed with such a store, so many moms. Buying essentials does not provide an alternative to sports girls because they don’t want to wear sports shorts.”
