Toys ‘R’ Us Goes Gender Neutral In Britain

Leftist busy-bodies just can’t help themselves

(Washington Times) Retail toy giant Toys “R” Us announced its United Kingdom stores would stop marketing items by gender and instead adopt the policies pushed by a parent-run campaign that asserts that girls and boys are interested in playing the same games.

Advertisements for the likes of guns and dolls and make-believe kitchenettes will target equally boys and girls, National Review Online reported. Toys “R” Us will also remove all gender references in its U.K. stores.

The head of the campaign Let Toys Be Toys — a parental coalition that believes play differences between boys and girls are largely created by advertisers and cultural pressures — expressed its satisfaction with the development.

“We’re delighted to be working so closely with a major toy retailer and believe there is much common ground here,” the group said in a press release. “Even in 2013, boys and girls are still growing up being told that certain toys are ‘for’ them, while others are not.”

Let’s face it, these “gender neutral” campaigns are not about empowering women and girls, but about hardcore feminists wanting to destroy those super-evil men and boys. Furthermore, this is all part of the Leftist method of destroying social mores in order to build a Progressive utopia. They often do this by getting the Government to come down hard on companies and people, as the government of Sweden did in an action against Toys R Us over “gender bias“. In order to completely change society, progressives feel they have to first destroy. Progressives are very intolerant.

    Kids will sort out what they want, or will play with the same toy in different ways. We gave our 4 and 5 year old grandson and granddaughter, a pair of the same stuffed animals. In 10 minutes, the boy had them fighting each other, and the girl was cuddling them. The gender benders are nuts.

    blick is right. Had a neighbor once who wanted their little boy to be gender neutral- bought him trucks AND dolls. They were heartbroken when he used the truck to run over the doll, threw it in the air and played airplanes with it. You can’t fight mother nature.

    Nonsense like this just amuses me. Anyone with a child and a brain to see, can see how boys and girls differ. The boys are all into action, running, jumping, fighting – the girls want to have a “tea party” with fake people and you can give them cars, and the girls will put her cars to bed after reading to them, and the boys will smash them with whatever happens to be around.

    Only the liberal morons with an agenda can’t see the obvious when it’s right in front of their eyes. One of the reasons I have no use for them – if they can’t see the obvious, why would I hire them at any task that requires that they actually “SEE” the obvious???

    Well, you guys are right for the most part. But there are 10-15% of the time when these actions end up scarring kids. They ruin their identity and sense of self. When a boy grows up in that environment, he is the single point of bullying and harassment in public schools and in life.

    Drug use and suicides are higher in this group than others.

    Boys can no longer be boys. They have to be pushed out of masculinity and drugged in to complacency and compliance.

    This is most of what is wrong with our society. The GOP leadership is perfect example of the wrongs of what can happen. They have become wusses and are afraid of making the enemies feel bad.
