    Today in Clownworld: Lego to remove 'gender bias' from their overpriced, coloured bricks

    Link: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeands...en-stereotypes

    Lego has announced it will work to remove gender stereotypes from its toys after a global survey the company commissioned found attitudes to play and future careers remain unequal and restrictive. Researchers found that while girls were becoming more confident and keen to engage in a wide range of activities, the same was not true of boys.

    Seventy-one per cent of boys surveyed feared they would be made fun of if they played with what they described as “girls’ toys” – a fear shared by their parents. “Parents are more worried that their sons will be teased than their daughters for playing with toys associated with the other gender,” said Madeline Di Nonno, the chief executive of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, who conducted the research.

    “But it’s also that behaviours associated with men are valued more highly in society,” said Di Nonno. “Until societies recognise that behaviours and activities typically associated with women are as valuable or important, parents and children will be tentative to embrace them.”


    The study found that parents still encouraged sons to do sports or Stem activities, while daughters were offered dance and dressing up (girls were five times more likely to be encouraged in these activities than boys) or baking (three times more likely to be encouraged).
    I didn't realise there was any 'gender bias' in fucking lego bricks but there you go.

    There isn't. But there is money to be made in virtue signaling. Even if it is to avoid the cultural lynch mob that will inevitably come after them in a couple of years.

    The Governor of California's top priority right now is ensuring there is a "gender neutral" toy isle in the stores.
    An escort is a woman you occasionally financially support only when she has sex with you.

    A date is a woman you occasionally financially support in the hope she will have sex with you.

    A wife is a woman you constantly financially support even when she is not having sex with you.

    An ex-wife is a woman you constantly financially support with alimony so she can have sex......with someone else.

    Manipulate them young!

    The fools really don't have a clue what's going on. The toys typically attractive to girls involve manipulation of people, which is necessary training for a life of working others to get help and support. Here's Barbie, here's Ken. What outfit can we put on Barbie to make her more attractive to Ken, so he'll pay for the Barbie dreamhouse?

    What are boys given? There's GI Joe, prep for going out and risking life and limb in support of the society. Lego bricks are good training for a typical male job tasks, such as construction work, or making creative stacks of cans at Walmart.

    But if girls can be encouraged to play with lego bricks, maybe they'll go on to become senior architectural engineers, making 200k a year. They sure aren't going to settle for the typical male jobs. When most of them don't make it, because it takes more than playing with bricks as a kid, then it will be the patriarchy keeping them down.

    The article mentions a mental health crisis among young people. That's understandable. They see the clownworld they have to survive in..

    Well said. There are reasons these toy preferences have emerged over the years and its not the reasons feminists will have you believe. There are, generally, preferences and that's fine. There was actually a study that showed when left to their own devices boys were more likely to pick the truck toy over the doll and vice versa.

    I actually spotted the article on the cesspool on LinkedIn and its refreshing that there is actually some common sense push back in the comments, which isn't being completely shut down.

    Who are you to make such a sweeping, negative generalisation? Many people enjoy building things, be it lego, mechano or scale models from wood/plastic or cardboard. Saying something like you have is akin to feminists who brand men paedophiles because they play with their children at a local park....and I've reported your post.

    How would we be able to interlock the bricks if they were gender neutral?

    Just like pangender Heinz 57 gendered culture, everything falls apart as it's being built!

    Daughters are suggested dance, dress up, and baking because they are GIRLS. No more explanation is needed. We've gone from having a grasp of human nature, backed up by thousands of years of human life on Earth, to feeling like we have to arbitrarily deconstruct everything. There's a thing called over-analysis where you get to the point that you're ultimately examining nothing and you start forcing a conclusion based on assertion, or the fact that something is being examined (i.e. "The fact that I am researching this means that something needs solving").
