State of that carpet.

Sleepwear brand removes kids "Boys Will Be Boys" pyjamas after complaint

Image

Yeah I'm fine with this. We need to stop excusing shitty behavior based on what gender you are.


"Boys will be Boys" is a sentence used to excuse rape, theft, violence, harassment, public urination and everything shitty when it is a white male younger than 40 year old, so yeah, I am COMPLETELY ok with that


It's a shitty phrase that's been used to excuse the vilest garbage.

Nothing of value is lost.


Girls do too? 'Kids will be kids' is a better statement. These kids aren't slaves to their assigned gender after all. But yes, kids in general tend to be loud, and dirty.


It’s a phrase used to excuse abhorrent things that guys do, and I’m not really aware of a different truly valuable way it’s used to balance that out, so yeah, bye.


Never seen the word pyjama until this thread.

I've only ever heard that phrase used to describe something fairly innocent.

They must just be the funnest most chilled out people ever, I imagine they're big hits at parties.

"Oh I see you're wearing Nike trainers - do you think it's ok to Just Do It what a hot take of a dumpster fire this gooseberry fool is NOT OK and has been used by generations of disgusting men to rape and abuse PoC and EMAWAT so yeah bye."

I just can't believe these people genuinely hold and express these opinions in their real everyday lives and that it isn't just an online persona to 'fit in'
There's just no way some of them could function day to day without someone eventually snapping and beating the gooseberry fool out of them. Or in America, just shooting them.

There's a thread on GAF taking the piss out of them for basically not being alt-right enough.

i might be biased but ive heard it to excuse annoying shitty behaviour - not PATRIARCHAL OPPRESSION but yeah i can see why people wouldnt like it.
when i was 10(?) one of my shitty friends (not excusing myself) decided to spray paint out of the window onto the external window/sill of another window in our house. when my dad called the kids mum to get her to tell him off she said "oh well boys will be boys". my dad was not pleased :lol:

I personally think they have a point, but they do (as does a lot of the PC world) come across as very harsh and not really very willing to explain their point. Also I get the impression that a lot of people in those groups, don't really seem to understand the arguments they're trying to put across.

Obviously some of those posts are way overboard -- I particularly liked the person who took the excuse to get really angry about "public urination" (the most serious of crimes, hang them!), and moreover seems to think it's something only men do (just an anecdote but the most prolific alley-pisser in my group of mates at Uni was a girl...).

And yeah, I agree, it's a just dumb t-shirt, who cares?

But...

I can see their point that society accepting boys "will be" badly behaved and young men "will be" dickheads, as if that's something intrinsic to being a boy, is pretty crappy. I remember a teacher literally telling my parents "boys will be boys" when I was being bullied at school, and I have heard "boys will be boys" or variations on that used to excuse or explain away other things I thought were pretty bad, like fighting in bars or smashing up restaurants or getting gropey in clubs or whatever.

So I would agree that they have a point about the phrase and the idea it puts forward. I don't think it's society's biggest problem but I think we could do without it, I might even live up to my stereotype as a joyless SJW (I should just go ahead and own it at this point, right?) and describe it as... (dramatic background music) p r o b l e m a t i c.

I can get the point that it shouldn't be a phrase that's applied to adults. But this was a shirt aimed at 6 year olds.

Maybe they should change it to "I'm a little gooseberry fool head because mommy doesn't care" to make it more accurate?
