A Grade 1 student recently stunned many netizens, including celebrities, after breaking gender stereotypes of choosing children’s toys.
According to netizen Dianne Agura’s Facebook post, She has been tutoring her younger sister named Ayesha and the latter amazingly answered a worksheet instructing to encircle toys that are for girls and box off those for boys.
Ayesha encircled and boxed off all the choices and told Dianne, “Ate, ang laruan, laruan kasi. Pwede naman lahat ’yan sa babae at sa lalake eh. Ako nga diba naglalaro naman ng kotse kotse-han at dinosaur, lalaki ba ako? Diba hindi naman? Edi pwede ’to sa babae. Parang damit Ate diba? Pag ang lalaki nagdamit ng dress, hindi naman bakla agad?”

Prominent personalities then praised the kid for the way she thinks despite her young age.
“I have two daughters and they play with toys from robots to motorcycles to blocks and dolls, too. Continue to break gender stereotypes, kids. Good job to Ayesha, the Grade 1 student who answered this,” Bianca Gonzalez wrote on Twitter.
“And so as pink, purple, blue, and black. There is no such thing as pambabae or panlalaki when it comes to toys, colours or even profession,” said Dawn Chang.
Dianne Agura’s Facebook post about the bright Grade 1 student Ayesha went viral on social media just recently. Her post has been featured on popular news sites like GMA News and Rappler.
This is not the first that a kid went viral for impressing many. Just days ago, A kid vendor has gone viral after he was spotted selling fresh lumpia using his bicycle as a vehicle. A guy, who was also the one who posted his story on Facebook tried to give him money as his way of helping but instead of accepting it, the kid told the guy to buy his lumpia instead as a way of supporting him.
Viral stories are normally those that touch hearts. Others are heartbreaking. One example is the story of siblings who were orphaned after their parents died, one after the other.
