Troublesome animal imagry

March 2, 2011

Wish I could find a link for this, but their website sorta sucks.  I’m a San Diego Zoo member, so I get their magazine in the mail every month.  This month, in the shopping section, was a set of outfits for kids that looked fun.  There were too options, both in bright fun colors with cartoon animal drawings on them.  One was in green and orange, and one was in blue and purple, so it was pretty clear there was a “girls” and a “boys” outfit there.  Thing is, the animal on the boys outfit is an owl, while girls outfit features a peacock.  This is the sort of thing where I’m sure no one meant to, but they just spread the message that boys are smart and girls are vain.
