Girls t-shirts at Walmart

It’s very disheartening that for many years to the present – Walmart sells girls t-shirts with so-called empowering messages. I.e- girls rule; girl power; whatever boys can do girls do it better, the future is female, and the most stomach churning one of all is “Princess”.

This does nothing for equality and it’s ridiculous. On any given day or time at Walmart you will find at least two of these kinds of shirts..

The messages only portray insecurity and undermines females goals for recognition of equality.

    LOL god damned bitches always ruining a good joke

    They probably need a good eating bahahaha

  2. Lol thanks wallmart for the laugh. But it should say the future is “people”. I don’t care if your male or female. If you can do it you can do it plain and simple.

  3. Some people are just never satisfied, even if you are supporting them they need something to bitch about..

  4. Wasn’t this worn is Orphan Black?

  5. Good luck reproducing the future is eqaulity drop the feminazi shit.

    This post makes me want to go buy this shirt right now.

  7. Because that’s the context of this post. So you’re technically sexualizing children who will be future adults, but who right now are children

    The future is fk’d???

    Alexandra Kettleweiss what’s your point?

  10. Lucy Simcoe Lucy Simcoe says:

    I agree, If the shirt said The Future is Male… people would be so offended. Lots would need to go on stress leave

  11. I disagree. It portrays what I as a child didnt have. The media outlet boys had showing they could do anything they wanted. Girls are finally getting messages of empowerment over the whole be quiet and do what your told messages. I welcome this

      Carrie-Ann Laffrenier I grew up in the 70s and 80s and I never experienced society saying I couldn’t do this or that because I was a girl…

    • Jen Stone I grew up in the 90s and remember this as a huge problem for me

    • Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

      Carrie-Ann Laffrenier such as???

    • Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

      Sarah Cormier hmmmm…where did I say that??? Oh right…I didn’t…
      You “claim” you want equality…but I bet if you were pregnant and the only woman on a bus filled with men…no seats available and not one man offered his seat to you…you would be on here crying about it…

    • Jen Stone lol your rebuttle to Carrie was exactly that you haven’t experienced sexism. So yes, you’re claiming something based singularly on your own experience.
      And yeah no I’m good. I’m the sole breadwinner with a career in my household, child free by choice with a stay at home husband. We support people doing what is best for themselves in my home and don’t ascribe to ancient and ridiculous gender roles. I’ve gladly given up my seat to men and women alike. Good try though.

  12. These are children’s clothes. :/

  13. Kimmy Cor Kimmy Cor says:

    So, Mr. Pascoe, if the present is male, is that who’s sitting on your face at this moment?

  14. Paige Ileen Smith Thank you,that needed to be said.

  15. Imagine they sold “Straight White Male” tee shirts! Place would be burnt down in a minute.

    90% of the responses where girls and I don’t think that they read between the lines or got the same message as I did. What I seen is that it’s wrong for guys to say guy power, or guy rules, or guys are better blah blah blah… but it’s very much ok for girls to do so… anyways that’s basically what I got out of it.

    • I think it is because there has never been a need for men to be empowered, women receive lesser pay for the same jobs, for years they were told they belong in a kitchen, or only certain jobs were for women. Equality between the genders (as far as work goes) is still a new concept

    • Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

      Natalie Fitzpatrick you will never have equality between men and women because we aren’t equal…
      Now I believe in equal pay for equal work…and I’m sorry but there are some jobs that I would prefer a woman over a man and vice versa…
      There are some areas that women have more rights than men just because they are women so please don’t think it’s always men over women…

  17. Connor Green Connor Green says:

    Kind of a stupid complaint BUT if it was a boys t the female population would flip out and Walmart would pull them.

  18. Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

    Women and men will never be equal because we aren’t equal and never will be…BUT….that’s not necessarily a bad thing either…
    We both have our strengths and weaknesses which should be celebrated not used as a divide…

  19. How about you just don’t buy the shirt and walk on by?

  20. Zack Tryon Zack Tryon says:

    Found all the feminists . Lol. If it said the “future is Male ” there would of a been a national outcry , stores would of been boycotted , the NFL would of worn some headband to help protest . Too much.

  21. What’s wrong with this shirt exactly?

  22. Learn some history before complaining. The original “the future is female” tshirt was printed in 1972 to advertise for the first female owned and operated bookstore opened in NYC. It’s everywhere now because a woman brought it back to sell in her store with part of the proceeds going to planned parenthood. It really blew up with the first women’s march once Trump was elected. This has done a tonne for equality and shouldn’t be lumped in with the princess shirts. The only concern I can see here is that Walmart has co-opted the message and the money is only going to the Walmart corporation.

  23. Did you know right now the prime minister of Canada has made Canada the laughing stock of the world? He’s taken it upon himself to raise our taxes, hes given known terrorists millions of dollars, refused much needed prosthetics from our vets while unconstitutionally depriving canadians of well needed resources..

    But you want to argue about what’s printed on a little girls t-shirt…

    Welcome to 2019 folks

  24. Lise Ranger Lise Ranger says:

    I love girl empowering messages. Equality is still an issue in today’s society. Also, You need to buy those Mickey Mouse pyjama bottoms! They are the best!

  25. I laugh at this insecurity you attempt to project. Misogynistic men get pretty pissed about the idea of the status quo being reversed. It shows they know exactly what they’re doing to girls/women

  26. We try to build up our girls, because the world is hard for girls

  27. Ben Rinaldo Ben Rinaldo says:

    It gives the message that NOW isn’t female but, maybe sometime in the future. Just adds to the insecurity. I raised two daughters, both as confident and able as any man out there. They take a back seat to no one. That’s how you get them ready for the future. Raise them ready for the future. Stop the stereotypical gifts and toys.

  28. Please go to old navy and buy a T-shirt

  29. Eric RB Eric RB says:

    it was to make people talk and complain , and it worked hahahaha

  30. Literally people like you that have issue with this type of shit are a huge part of the problem.

  31. Carrie Ann Carrie Ann says:

    As a female, i find nothing wrong with these kind of shirts.
    We need to boost eachother up. We need to show others and know ourselves that as women, we are just as important as men.
    Women do a lot this day in age… we work, we run the household, we take care of the kids, a lot of the time we do more than men do.

    No sense making a big deal out of nothing.

    Everyone in this day and age gets so upset about everything!!

    • Carrie Ann the point they’re bringing up is the shirts don’t emphasize equality but try to impose woman superiority. That being said you are right, they are just shirts no need getting offended

    • Connor Green Connor Green says:

      But if it was a boys t the end would be here

    • Impose women’s superiority. That’s hilarious. Women have been suppressed the majority of history. This tshirt was developed to celebrate women entering into a business field for the first time ever in the 70s. There’s still a push for equality, unfortunately the world isn’t there yet.

    • Connor Green Connor Green says:

      70’s? World? 2019.

    • Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

      Sarah Cormier there will never be equality because we aren’t equal…

    • Brian Emery Brian Emery says:

      Makes and females always play each their important role since the beginning of time…why all of the sudden some women are persuaded to think they should feel inferior and a need to ‘catch up’. Men have always seen the beauty and strength of woman…feminists are causing feuds for nothing.

    • Jen Stone that’s a disgusting point of view.

    • Brian Emery yeah have always seen the beauty and strength,unless you want control over your own body, the right to own property, the right to vote, the right to marry who you please,etc etc. If you think that men have treated women fairly or properly throughout history then I have a bridge to sell you.

    • Jen Stone Jen Stone says:

      Sarah Cormier it’s not a disgusting point of view…it’s the truth…
      Difference is…You view it as a negative thing…I don’t…
      Women are catty…petty…and full of double standards…
      They claim they want equality but as soon as they get it…they bitch about it…

    • Darryl John Darryl John says:

      Brian Emery love you Bri but Jesus you’re out to lunch on this one

    • Jen Stone lol I don’t know. Claiming all women are catty petty and full of double standards sounds exactly like you view women in a negative light. You don’t see women as equal because you seem to have some serious hatred going on towards your own gender.

  32. Get over yourself princess 😉

    Couldn’t be more right, in fact it’s much worst.
