Is it a problem that there is a difference in how drengetøj looks compared to pigetøj - and where it is located in the supermarkets?
Yes, believe 33-year-old Anna Jensen, who yesterday set fire to the debate, when she in an article in B. T. said that she believes that the Supermarket contributes to the preservation of gender attitudes when it comes to the breakdown and design of children's clothing.
No, believe Mads Christensen, known as the 'Blærerøven,' whose own collection of socks for men previously been sold in the same supermarket - a collection, which at the time was accused of being sexist, because they were decorated among other things with the words: "You bake, I taste" and "Keep the mouth, there is a ball."
Mads Christensen believes, not surprisingly, that it is important to keep in the differences between men and women - and in this case boys and girls:
"I think it is wonderful that the boys are boys and girls are girls - men and women are not the same."
dress a girl in "typical" pigetøj, it is often adorned in bright colors, but the "typical" drengetøj can be more poset, dark, and with, for example, cool dinosauere on, and it can, according to Anna, mean that a girl feels limited, while a boy can indulge in wild play.
The reasoning buy Mads Christensen himself into, and he is partially agree - however, he considers not that it is wrong, that there arise differences between the sexes.
"What is wrong, it is that people are trying with violence and the power to give children, who are not even old enough to ride a bike to school himself, to decide for themselves their gender and their social security number. It is on the way out over an abyss."
He believes that gender equality is important up to a point. For him, it is about equal conditions for both sexes, but equality in the form of uniforms is something else:
"There is a greater sense that we are different. We must enjoy it. The uniformity that comes in the wake of that we will have equality, have become ill. We should concentrate on something that is important instead," he says, and continues:
"We must enjoy the obvious differences between the sexes. We should be happy that we are not alike and have the same sexless uniform on."Updated Date: 05 December 2019, 09:00
