I can't believe this is a serious post.spike1128 wrote: ↑Dec 31st, 2012 8:25 pmLet's not get ahead of ourselves on this one and blow this out of proportion. The toys has nothing to do with feminism or discrimination. It has something to do with child psychology. Thus more girls will prefer to play with this than the boys.
Normally, given a male oriented toy (aka cars, tanks, robots) and a given a female oriented toy (aka barbie, kitchen set, etc) the boy will usually play with the male toy and the girl will play with the female toy. It is not to say that they are trying to manipulate the kids on playing a certain toy.
My friend once told me that if a girl gravitates on playing with boy toys or vice versa, it might mean that they might become homosexuals in the future. I would caution parents not to give opposite genderized toys to the kids, and let them pick their own toys. It wouldn't be cool to dress up a boy like a princess by their parents.
I used to play with a kitchen set as a kid (I'm a guy) alongside my typical 80s robot toys. Kids will play with what they see adults playing with or just with whatever is around. The whole concept of 'genderized' toys won't occur to them unless someone tries to push it on them.
