Its a joke implying that the childs sex doesnt matter for the choice of toys. Basically saying people shouldnt force boys to just play with stereotypical boy toys and the same for girls. I dont see anything wrong with it.

[–]Vodnik-Dubs17 points18 points  (4 children) | Copy

They shouldn’t be forced but they shouldn’t encouraged not to either. They should be able to play with what they like more

[–]RuffledPenguin7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

So you agree with the image, let the kids play with the toys they want and enjoy their childhoods.

[–]Vodnik-Dubs7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes, that’s what I’m saying.

[–]MainFrame05 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Thats basically what the image says

[–]FirePlayer15[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Did you read the comments of the post the picture Is ok but I kinda don't like the comments they made

[–]redmaster_2827324 points25 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm sorry but this is like one of the only points I agree with them

[–]Zhyttya31 points32 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's stupid. Just let the kids play whay they want. They don't even think about this stupid gender shit. They are just kids with imagination. Never when I was a kid I liked playing with dolls. Or any kind of girly toy. I actually enjoyed playing more with cars. Turns out today I'm just a normal grown up woman. Didn't affect me what so ever.

What’s wrong with the post? It’s mildly funny and I agree with it. We need to build bridges where they can be built. We can’t just oppose everything feminists promote just because they’re feminists. Nuance, bro!

[–]ashnagog12 points13 points  (6 children) | Copy

It's a fucking joke

[–]Max20001284 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's a joke...

[–]Darthai10 points11 points  (5 children) | Copy

It's a joke and not a wrong one

[–]FirePlayer15[S] -3 points-2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Explain yourself

[–]Darthai10 points11 points  (3 children) | Copy

Aside from the ideology behind it, i don't see anything wrong with the post itself. Any toy can be played by a boy or a girl, except when it's a sex toy. Tho i doubt that if this fits mainstream feminist agenda since they lose their shit when they see girls playing with traditionally girl toys, and they are trying to sexualize the kids so some of them would be quite ok with kids with dildos.

[–]Smil3ytjuuhh3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

The original is from r/pointlesslygendered

[–]Super_S_123 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s true though.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Lol my brother used to play my little ponies with me and id play bionicle and legos with him.

[–]boop-oop-a-doop-bop1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

All toys can be operated with your genitalia, you’ve just gotta be smart.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (12 children) | Copy

I'm curious to know if boys should play with dolls as much as girls? I don't really like it. Am I wrong?

[–]Darthai4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

"Should" is completely different than "could". If a boy wants to play with dolls, there's no harm in that, but in case of "should" that means we would be forcing childred to play with certain type of toys.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

basically kids don't have a choice in their early years of life. We provide things. We provide clothes and tell boys the skirts aren't meant for them and it is for girls. In the same way, should we be telling boys that dolls aren't for them?

[–]Darthai1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don't see a reason to tell boys that dolls aren't for them. As long as a toy can provide positive development or at least don't cause negative effects on the kid, i'm fine with it.

And the skirt issue is more of a cultural thing. Scotts wear kilts, which are practically skirts and there are other cultures where mean wear skirt/dress-like clothing. I think man in general preferred trousers over skirt/dress-like clothing in many regions of the world due to trousers being more practical and usefull in classic work environment, while women preferred dress/skirt over aesthetic reasons.

[–]FirePlayer15[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

It is completely fine you can play with whatever you like

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

true but kids don't like anything from birth. We provide them toys

[–]BigLebowskiBot2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

You're not wrong, Walter, you're just an asshole.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

well, I was just asking. Don't call me asshole just for being honest about what I feel.

[–]StrawhatMucci-2 points-1 points  (4 children) | Copy

Nope. Its made specifically for girls. I personally don't want my son playing barbies. I think there has to be a distinction between genders to a certain limit. If I see him playing with one im not gonna go nuts on him or anything. Im just gonna buy something else he likes and tell him that isn't for him in a nice way.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

yes, this is exactly what I am asking. Thanks for answering.

[–]hawknose330 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

seems like you just wanted someone to agree with you. There were plenty of people telling you that toys are just toys.

[–]StrawhatMucci0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

No worries bro have a good day. Dont let the crazed society tell you otherwise they have way more worse stuff in their lives lol.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Haha yes, thanks man!

[–]ritualesatanum0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's true tho

[–]Cire_jc0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It's a joke about sex toys

[–]yourmomgay420696660 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I got banned from r/Feminism

[–]boop-oop-a-doop-bop0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Then what’s a pool noodle?

[–]Mar_Ci0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They are battling a non-existent issue as usual.

[–]aroh100876-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

For God's sake, feminists are fucking stupid, this is a damn joke. If you operate the toy with your genitals then it's a fucking sex toy and of course those toys are not meant for children.

[–]Egalitarianwhistle-2 points-1 points  (3 children) | Copy

The real question is why feminists are giving sex toys to children.

[–]Mjaxin0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

They're not???? Do you not understand the joke?

[–]Egalitarianwhistle-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

They are ostensibly giving them toys that are operated with their genitals. That's problematic.

[–]Mjaxin-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

The JOKE is saying that unless something is operated with specific genetalia, young girls and boys should be able to play with whatever toys make them happy. It's not 'ostensibly' giving children sex toys. If you see this and automatically think giving children sex toys, that sounds like a you problem.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
