UK-based retailer John Lewis recently announced that in an effort to stop reinforcing gender stereotypes, they would refrain from labeling their kid鈥檚 clothing by gender. As a result, netizens have been seriously divided on the topic.

John Lewis will transition from separate kid鈥檚 clothing sections to one, labeled 鈥淕irls & Boys鈥 or 鈥淏oys & Girls.鈥 If you take a look at the website, some things 鈥 like Star Wars- and T. Rex-emblazoned pajamas 鈥 are already simply labeled 鈥淐hildren鈥檚.鈥

As with all things these days, the internet has a lot to say about it. People went off on Facebook with comments like, 鈥淟et boys be boys and girls be girls! Stop this gender neutral madness now! Political correctness doesn鈥檛 lead to insanity! Political correctness is insanity!鈥 and 鈥淲hen you come to your senses and have different ranges of clothes for boys and girls. Until then I鈥檓 not buying anything from John Lewis again.鈥

Naturally, Twitter had opinions too 鈥 including Piers Morgan, of course.

They weren鈥檛 all negative, though. While many people think this move will cause more problems than it will solve, others were happy that John Lewis is trying to do away with gender stereotypes from a young age.

What do you think of John Lewis鈥 decision? Tell us @BritandCo!
