Yesterday’s news from those oh-so Concerned Women For America that Mattel is “promoting gender confusion” among children” through a Barbie.com poll had us up in arms (well more like chuckling. Ok, you got us. We had the worst laughing fit since Tyra Banks dressed up as Paris Hilton for halloween last year).
When asking for the child’s sex, the poll’s options include a response of “I don’t know.” How dare our favorite childhood make such a goof? It’s just terrible.
Mattel has since fixed what they describe as a monstrous technical error.
But in all seriousness, we don’t see why they haven’t been up and arms over Ken all this time. Even as grade schoolers, his smoothed over and penis-free crotch area made us realize at a very young age that he was a post-op trannie.
Exhibit A after the jump.
