Parents in Argentina are freaking out after a female fairy doll with a penis appeared on toy store shelves. It has now been branded the world’s first transgender doll.
News about the doll broke after a mother claimed her three-year-old daughter discovered the penis under the doll’s skirt. She posted a picture of it on her Facebook account. The story quickly went viral, causing a stir across the country, before eventually turning into a worldwide pandemic among concerned parents.
The toy was made in China. It is unknown whether the penis was intentional on the part of the manufacturers or if was a factory defect, though we’re going to take a wild guess and say it wasn’t intentional.
The doll has sent shock waves across Argentina. Parents are now said to be debating whether or not the doll’s gender will somehow influence their children. The Daily Mail quotes one member of the public crying: “It’s very difficult to give an opinion because I’m conscious that it’s a taboo subject in society… but yes, obviously, it’s shocking.”
Meanwhile, Argentina’s transgender community and their allies have come out in support of the fairy doll.
Child psychologist Ricardo Rodulfo tells the Daily Mail that “it doesn’t matter to a child whether their toy has male genitalia or not. The idea causes more disturbance among adults.”

I understand the need for acceptance, equality, understanding, etc. But is it really necessary to be putting dicks on dolls?
Totally ridiculous. This had to be a mistake but they should pull them from shelves. Kids don’t need to be exposed to this nonsense.
If that’s where they think a penis is located, they need some anatomy lessons.
It is a penis because people want to believe it is a penis. Nastiness is in the eye of the beholder. People see what they wanna see.
Is there anything about that doll that resembles an actual female human being? People just like to look for things to get upset about.
I don’t get any of you people.
@Billy Budd, why is a penis “nastiness” ?
#aliengod What’s wrong with dicks on a doll? Why is that nonsense? So what if the doll is indeed transgender? There’s nothing wrong with a boy or a girl dressing up as the opposite gender. Children are far more accepting than adults, adults are the nasty ones and nonsensical ones.
Geez, what’s wrong with you people!
@kayakriver: It was just a manner of speech. I agree that there is nothing nasty about a penis. It is a beautiful normal thing!
It’s probably a factory fluke but if she’s smart she’ll put it on ebay and hawk it as a TGF doll.
That’s a stem from the injection molding process.
