Weekend Open Thread

August 2, 2014

Behold the power of social media: After a mom’s letter taking them to task for their gender stereotypical selection went viral, Land’s End has started selling science-themed shirts for girls.


After all, not every girl likes rainbows, lollipops and unicorns, amirite?

Meanwhile, Lego has started selling female scientist mini figurines. The “research institute” set features a female paleontologist, astronomer and chemist.


Happy shopping!

What are you up to this weekend? Chat away!
