An image of two children walking hand in hand at the hospital that’s circulating social media is leaving users divided over whether it’s cute — or sexist.
The photo in question show what appears to be a little boy and a little girl walking together down a hospital hallway wearing similar colorful scrubs.
But while the blonde ponytailed little girl’s scrubs are pink and say ‘Nurse in Training’ on the back, the little boy’s are green and read ‘Doctor in Training.’
The picture was shared on Twitter by @TheMedicalShots and quickly went viral.
The image shows a little boy and a little girl holding hands at the hospital, shares Daily Mail.
‘This is cute, isn’t it?’ the account tweeted, adding a heart eyes emoji.

The tweet has been liked over 20,000 times, but the comments were not so appreciative.
In fact, thousands of people claimed the image isn’t cute at all — it’s sexist.
‘No it’s not. Why isn’t she a Dr as well? Or why is the boy not a nurse?’ asked one.
‘The children are cute. The sexism on their backs is NOT,’ tweeted a woman named Deirdre Marie-Iha.
‘How did you tweet this from the year 1950?’ asked Jill Tatara.
‘It’s actually sexist as f*** and an inaccurate representation since, as of 2017, there are more women in medical school than men,’ added user @NotGeauxGabby.
‘To everyone saying “iTs NoT tHaT sErIoUS, tHeYrE jUsT kIdS.” WE KNOW! It’s not about the kids,’ wrote Cierra Williams.
‘It’s about the thought process behind the picture. It’s about people still feeling like when you see a man in scrubs & a woman in scrubs, y’all automatically assume he’s the doctor.’
Do you think it’s sexist?
