I don’t know if you like or hate (or even know about) the new LEGO line: LEGO Friends
But I’m gonna let you know how I feel about it, because this is my blog and that’s what I get to do here…
ALL YOU PEOPLE (mostly women) WITH YOUR PANTIES IN A BUNCH BECAUSE OF THIS NEW LINE OF TOYS….MAKES ME FUCKING ANGRY.
Why is it that we all rally around a boy who wants to dress like Daphne, but god forbid we let girls act like princesses…or pretend to be vets, or rock stars, or play in tree houses, OR BE INVENTORS!?!?!?
Because these LEGO Friends are going to completely ruin society. Girls who have LITTLE to NO INTEREST in building things MIGHT actually WANT to BUILD something…and that right there would be the end of the fucking world…
What’s next? Girls wanting to wear tiaras¹ and tutus while they mountain bike?
So please, please, please stop taking away choices for
girls women. Let the us wear pants, dresses, tennis shoes, or heels. Let EACH OF US DECIDE OURSELVES what we want to play with, and who we are. Don’t force us into or out of anything. Let’s stop this war on each other and start loving/respecting each person for who they are and what they want to become.
Besides, being a bully towards others is so high school…
¹Don’t wear a tiara while you ride your bike. Wear a helmet – but make it a pink one, would ya?
I like what McNally says at the end of this article, “It is up to parents and their kids to figure out what is the best for interest and their building ability.” (It’s not up to YOU to decide for ME…it’s up to me to decide for me.)
