UNDERSTANDING HOW FASHION FAILS US
It's not cute. Nor is it harmless. It's time to stop buying it so they stop making it. If you'd like to gain a better understanding why we do what we do at THIS GIRLS TEE'S, take time to read, and share the wisdom below. We can bring about change. Let's start with what we wear on our own bodies.

The Dangerous Lessons Kids Learn From Sexist T-Shirts

BUT WAIT, What's Wrong with glitter?
Just for the record, I don't hate glitter. Or kittens. Or rainbows. And I, myself, have been a bride, sing songs, dance (poorly and with wild abandon) and enjoy being a wife and mother. Of course girls can like any or all those things AND be smart, like math, run fast, etc. But when those things are pitched as the ONLY interests or aspirations of ALL girls, and the market is saturated with that sentiment, that's when fashion is failing us. The undertone is so... dumb. And that is something YOU are not. So wear some glitter! Hug your kitten! Be beautiful! (because you are) But also, embrace your strengths, support each other and work hard at being good at something that gives back to the world. ~ Kris
These are examples of the negative stereotypes perpetuated by the fashion industry that THIS GIRL'S TEES is determined to undo. We all deserve better!
