Spotted these in a high street shop this week. One globe is as you would expect – blue oceans, green and brown landmasses. The other is pink.
It may not say ‘boy’ and ‘girl’, but there can’t be any doubt that this is the intention.
The only time you would need a pink globe would be if there was a resurgence of the British Empire, and we took over the ENTIRE world.
But in the meantime, there is no place for this pinkification of science and learning. The oceans are blue, sexism is pink.
