Story from a shoe store:
Theo (then age 6): I want to try those sparkly shoes on.
Salesperson: No, those are girls shoes.
Theo, carefully explaining: There’s no difference between boy shoes and girl shoes. Their feet are the same, you know.
Salesperson to Theo’s mom: he CAN’T try those on. They’re GIRL SHOES.
Both insisted. He tried them on. (But they weren’t very good shoes, and we didn’t want to buy anything from them anymore.)
Go Theo! Just goes to show, the protest is for brave PEOPLE. Girls and boys. Their ideals are the same, you know.
Send in your stories! We love to hear from all the brave people.
