I ended up at Sears in the Laura something or other section where the clothes were more conservative. The boy shorts are insanely long. Born and bred in Metro Detroit, Michael has lived, worked, and written throughout the Midwest; he currently resides in rural Ann Arbor, Michigan. I submitted the collection to Four Way Books in the summer of during their open reading period. I applaud you for speaking out. Amazing I truly hope they listen and help make the difference in kids clothes. There were no Elsa and Anna for boys so we checked out the girls section…but of course the cut was wrong and I would not let him buy this cut style.
I prefer my sons shorts at the knee or just below, but at least mid thigh to the knee is a good range for my girls. Yes, I said inappropriately…. And thank you to Target for listening to their customers! Saw several pairs when I was there yesterday! Modesty is actually a natural behavior while the opposite indicates a problem somewhere. I also think boys wear their shorts and t-shirts over-sized when I put my son in clothes that fit, he looks weird next to the other boys at the bus stop.

More super hero things for girls!!!!!! What more could you ask for? I bought the Shawn White shorts you showed, they are really cute. I would love to be able to add more clothing to the list. And I mean postage stamp tiny. I have a 7 yr old girl and 8 yr old boy. It was a long time before I erased the message.
Of course Amma and her girl gang aren't the only scary teens in Wind Gap. My daughter is 12 and tall and thin. It took me three year after my MFA to get it to a publishable place. Another gender inequality I noticed while shopping for my son and daughter over the years. The shorts were tight and the shirts were to tight only in the arm seam weird that shirts seams.
