There's an article titled Barbie 'Promotes Gender Confusion' Conservative Group Claims at 365gay.com which is something I thought I'd never read. It has some choice quotes in it from Concerned Women for America.
Let me show you some of the writing.
There's this sentence:
"It’s the idea that well, maybe people aren’t born a particular biological sex, or they are but that shouldn’t determine their gender identity," said Bob Knight, the director of CWA's Culture & Family Institute.I read that and I was like, okay... this sounds pretty good.
But then I read the next sentence:
"And that’s a very big component of the homosexual activist agenda now."Hey Mr. Knight - just FYI, most of the "homosexual agenda" hates us trans people just as much as you do. So that seems wrong. Unless we're all one person or something.
Then check out his next sentence:
"In other words, any kid who’s not sure about who he is, he’s fair game to try to persuade to have same sex acts," said Knight.Actually, I didn't think anyone was persuading children to "have same sex acts." First of all, we're talking about gender here. Second of all, we're talking about 4 year olds. The only person I'm trying to have same-sex acts with is my boyfriend and he's a 20-something and does not play with Barbie. (See, some of us on the left think that Barbie actually helps enforce traditional gender roles. I know it may seem strange to you.)Okay, that's enough analysis by me. Quench, what do you think?
And in case you haven't read the article yet, here is another choice quote.
It isn't the first time that CWA has targeted Matell. The organization previously went after the toymaker's American Girl doll division, claiming that Girl Inc. promotes abortion and lesbianism to young girls.Which American Girl Doll is the lesbian? Which one has the abortion? Aren't they all kind of prepubescent? Okay, I admit, I don't know shit about dolls. I mean, I hope that soon you all write about whether the awesome hotwheel cars I played with, or better yet micromachines which had that cool add on TV are screwing with my head.
