This report tells us that some feminists are angry at the stereotypes presented in the new girly product from the classic toy Lego. The feminists complain that the girly Lego figures are curvaceous and have cute haircuts.
I don’t get it. What’s wrong with the little girl toy looking like a girl? But then they’re mad because the girlie toys have Lego girls in bakeries, kitchens and doing home making activities.
I’m actually on their side, and have often argued for equality in the workplace. We should have more women rat catchers, septic tank pumpers, meat packers and oil rig workers.
Seriously, I think they should cool off a little. This is a toy company. This is a commercial decision. Toys with girls being garbage truck workers, sewage maintenance engineers, coal miners and slaughterhouse workers I don’t think would sell very well.
But then again, telling feminists to cool off is a big like expecting a volcano to cool off. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. The whole feminist movement is run on rage. Take away the rage and you take away the movement.
