Despite some people pushing to raise their kids gender-neutral, we don’t see clothing companies getting rid of boys and girls product lines anytime soon, but one parent is really hoping some of them at least make a change to some girl clothes to make them more equal to those of boys, and it seems a lot of parents are on her side.
Author Heather Kaczynski took to social media to complain about the fact that most girls’ pants don’t come with pockets, much to the frustration of her three-year-old daughter.
“PLEASE PUT POCKETS ON GIRLS PANTS. omg. My 3yo is SO ANGRY when she doesn't have pockets or the pockets are fake,”
“She has THINGS TO HOLD, like rocks and Power Rangers. She's resorted to putting stuff down her shirt. come on. pockets for girls please.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
Yeah, I deleted that tweet. Time to talk about something else, Internet.— Heather Kaczynski (@HKaczynski) April 24, 2018
My girl refuses to buy shorts in the girl section because "they don't have any treasure pockets." May she always value pockets full of rocks so highly.— Alison Chandra (@aliranger29) April 22, 2018
But even thought the original tweet is gone. After Heather posted her complaint, it quickly went viral getting more than 230,000 “likes,” and prompting more parents of little girls to chime in about their frustrations over pocket-less pants. And it’s not just parents of young girls, many older women are just as frustrated, noting that even as adults they have a hard time finding pants with pockets.

At 4, my kiddo had a pair of pants she always wore backwards because there were functional pockets in back and stupid sewn up nothings in front.— Rebecca Donnelly (@_becca_donnelly) April 20, 2018
My 13 year old daughter has started choosing jeans from the “boys” sections of stores, just so she has decent pockets.— Sarah (@sarah1807) April 22, 2018
