2-Year-Old Girl Can't Get Spider-Man Shoes at Target

Target Doesn't Offer Spider-Man Shoes For Girls, Leaving a 2 Year Old Heartbroken

Every kid deserves the chance to feel like a superhero, regardless of gender. That's why one dad decided to push back when he realized Target's children's shoes weren't gender-inclusive. Qasim Rashid tweeted on April 6, that while shopping at Target, his 2-year-old daughter wanted Spider-Man shoes to match her older brother's. Sadly, the retailer doesn't offer an option to fit his daughter, and even while searching online, he could only find "boys' shoes" results. Eventually, his daughter took her brother's shoes and rocked them around the house, but wouldn't it be nice if she had a pair of her own?

Unfortunately, this isn't a new problem when shopping as a parent. Most major retailers still carry gendered clothing and Qasim's story is prompting others to come forward and share their own experiences.

Qasim tweeted that while this "shoe-gate" may seem small, he made a promise to his daughter to give her everything he gives his sons, and he plans on sticking to that. Let's hope retailers start seeing things his way soon.
