Our thanks to Martin for this. An extract:
Caroline Bettis, head of childrenswear at John Lewis, said: “We do not want to reinforce gender stereotypes within our John Lewis collections and instead want to provide greater choice and variety to our customers, so that the parent or child can choose what they would like to wear.”
Hmm, might this utter BS have something to do with the fact that the new Managing Director of John Lewis is Paula Nickolds, the first woman to hold the position? We look forward to the commercial decline of John Lewis, and the inevitable claim of sexism by Ms Nickolds when she’s fired for failing to deliver. It’s an outrage that eight out of the nine people on the Waitrose Management Team have penises, not vaginas. How on earth does the store continue to be successful? It’s a mystery, for sure.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
