Re: Equality Issues

Equal representation is not a great idea, in my opinion. There could be many reasons for thinking the man is the pilot. Three year old kids might not be able to articulate very well that a captain has a different uniform, or that they only saw females serving drinks, or any other reason apart from gender.

A far bigger problem is automatically assuming it was gender, as opposed to appreciating that your son was right.

Garbage. He was wrong. The man was also a flight attendant agreeing the same style of uniform as the women. It was all about gender and what has been assimilated from nursery and books. Little girls of the same age have openly said they can be nurses but not doctors. Itís the same situation.

I donít know how into childrenís literature you are but itís a big problem. Read books of 20-30 plus years ago and the everyday sexism is awful and cringe worthy. Modern day books are a lot better but itís still there. And thatís only about gender. Try race, disability etc etc.

This about kids, not adults that should know better. Society should not impose such prejudices and life limiting things in them from such an early age.
