  1. Ah, the old "same figure, different paint" trick!! I really want to like this line, but at the same time... my wallet's glad I don't.
  2. Still nothing about the supposed Inkling kids from Splatoon?
  3. While I understand WHY you could interpret it as "sex ed" on PC ideas, I think you're the one giving them those attributes, the dolls are just options. Bear with me, please. If I were a kid again and wanted a boy with long hair to be my avatar I could with these. If I were a girl and wanted short hair, I could. There's no agenda in that, I'd even argue it shields children's innocence even further. By not giving attributes of what's wrong or right in the looks of a person, or gender, innocence prevails without prejudice. These give the options of the children making them what their innocence gives. Limitless imagination, if you will. Us as adults have learned through years of experience the hows and whats and whys, so we assume many things have a definition because we see it, or have learnt to see it. The way the toys are defined and the way they are trying to appeal to the kids feels pretty innocent. Isn't "be who yourself" what we always tell kids? LGBT are born that way, same as us straights, I played with dolls all my life with my sisters, grew up without a masculine figure to nurture me or learn from, always related more to girls than boys, and am still a straight male since birth.
  4. We're still talking toys approved for a certain age up, right? Not sensitive or inappropriate content online or on TV at wrong hours, or improper gun use, or unhealthy feeding habits, or substance abuse, or abusive behavior, right? Still toys, right?
  5. Real heroes here. Saving Mattel from bankrupt by buying out these dolls because they don't align with their world view. So happy Mattel will see these dolls selling out and decide to make more. Beautiful.
  6. Pfff bet it's expensive as buck rn. I'll check it out, but in the end it'll come down to how much I enjoy playing as him.
  7. I'm not okay with you calling it "statistically insignificant, but highly vocal, deviant sub-culture", and yet here we stand. If you have children you can nurture the values you see fit, and buy them the toys you deem appropriate, but a company giving choices, options, for people who seek representation is ok in my book. If it doesn't harm anyone, but rather benefits, why would it be wrong? Would I buy these? Unlikely. I don't collect dolls. If I had kids, and they asked me to buy one of these, would I? Sure, as long as they finish their chores.
  8. If I may... Um, I'll tell you the problem with the franchise that they're using here, it didn't require any discipline to attain it. They saw what others had done and took the next step. They didn't earn the recognition for themselves, so they don't show any responsibility for it. They stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as they could, and before they even knew what they had, they patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now [bangs on the table] they're selling it, they wanna sell it. Well... their filmmakers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should.
  9. Look at us grown ups discussing if dolls for children should or shouldn't be marketed as "SJW BS". Personally, I think this is great. It's all about representation, these dolls are avatars for the kids that play with them. I remember playing with my sisters and them being upset that I didn't have action figures they could be, and me being upset I they didn't have dolls I could be. These just give options, if it's progressive marketed and helps it's sales, great, but in reality it's just getting options. Time will tell, but let's be honest, this is either for the children to decide or the collectors, we SJW rarely afford to have children.
