Hot Wheels are for Girls Too
Nithya Das

I was in the Air Force, can fly small planes, love combat boots, or even better yet, steel toe boots in a commercial kitchen. My 9 yo daughter adores kittens and rainbows, but not as much as parkour and surfing, or even better yet, hiking the trails with her dad. My husband is smitten with both this middle aged, and the little woman in his life. His admiration shows her everyday that “tomboy” and gender limiting commentary is at the least absurd in 2015. I’ve been more cheeky in advising her that when someone calls her a tomboy to simply reply, “who’s this tom?” The message Target is sending with its choice is inspiring and I hope the rest follow suit in short order! Thanks for informing!
