Girls Can't What?!?!?!

Ever been told you CANT because your a GIRL??

If you're anything like me, that is a load of CRAP! And Gretchen over at Girls Can't What? thinks so too. She created Girls Can't What? in 2005, since she's not your typical girly girl. She grew up with the guys and played football, raced BMX bikes and played little league right along with them. She even had an aweful car accident in high school and was told she wouldn't walk again... but this girl CAN what? Oh yeah... she CAN walk! She even was the only female percussion major in college, in a field full of guys. Yeah, she's been told in the past that she can't cause she's a girl.

At the Girls Can't What? website, you can even share your story of when you were told that you couldn't because you are a girl. How were you inspired to face that? Head over there and tell Gretchen!

Girls Can't What? is aimed at girls and women of all ages, people who aspire to do all sorts of different things... career themed shirts for the ladies that want to be mechanics or cops and more, shirts for the military woman and so much more from sports, to music and everything in between. Its not just limited to shirts! Are you a 4 wheelin' muddin' chick who likes to bring your own tote bag to the grocery store, then this is for you! Gonna speak your mind? Check out the selection of the soapbox items!!

When the hub and I first got together, he was stoked that I loved playing video games, but of course... he thinks he's better than me... Needless to say, I've whooped his heiney in Madden more than once. So naturally, I got the gamer t-shirt!! Now to me, clothes are clothes, but with this, I'm damn proud to say- YES! THIS GIRL CAN!!!

Teaching our girls that they can do anything they put their mind to is important and I'm so happy to have found Girls Can't What? Girls are strong, powerful and ABLE!! I love empowering sites like this!! A big, huge, giant round of applause to Gretchen for starting it!!

Want your own Girls Can't What? t-shirt? Head on over to the shop and come back here, letting me know which shirt you'd pick!!

Cadance February 28, 2009 at 9:59 AM  

Gotta say in this household of video-game-playin' boys that I live in...I am the Queen of XBOX 360 Guitar Hero 3, Wii Bowling & Raving Rabbids, and PaRappa The Rapper for the PS2!

So went over to the site and I'd say I'd either have the video-game playing girl or the Cheerleader one 'cause I'm really just a girly-girl!(but totally believe girls can do all those things!)....and I'd totally buy it on either a tote..or tank top..gotta have a fitted-type T (and the cap-sleeve one is not a V-neck..so no good!)! The hoodie is cute too! Cute site! Thanks for the info in the site! Enjoy your weekend!

My favorite is the Gamer Women's Cap Sleeve T-Shirt. I was hoping they would have one Girls can want with a truck on it. Because once my son said that girls (women) couldn't drive a Pickup truck. I was driving a pickup truck; all this at a time when women were buying more trucks than men.

embwondertwin91 March 1, 2009 at 6:46 PM  

I really love either the shot put or discus girl! I was discouraged about trying out for my track and field team this year because my brother and his football player friends told me i wouldn't make it..but geuss what, I DID!!! I think that these shirts are great and give girls confidence to follow their dreams. Just looking at them inspired me!
