Many of those frustrated by the photo took to the social media page to make their feelings known.
No it’s not. Why isn’t she a Dr as well? Or why is the boy not a nurse?

The children are cute. The sexism on their backs is NOT.

No, it’s not Why always a guy shown as e future doctor and a girl as a nurse ?

Is there something wrong with nurses?
If people are complaining about the *stereotype* of boy doctor / girl nurse then I get it.
But we shouldn't show disrespect to nurses by implying the girl is inferior for it.
Anyway, what if the kids themselves asked for this?

Before we scream sexist, what if the girl genuine wants to be a nurse....?
