Peggy recently blogged about how even the limited edition 'Space barbie' though is supposed to be an astronaut barbie, has so much make up on , it is hideous..And , I completely agree, much as i agree to most of what peggy blogs about.You can read more of her blogs by following the link to her Women in Science blog on my blogroll.
Meanwhile, i will just post a quote of the comment I myself made on there.
Here goes my comment.
Start of quote:
"Hey peggy, thanks a ton for posting blogs that i myself would have liked to talk or blog about but haven't had the time to do so.
Yeah.. well ! My dad bought me a set of 'blocks' when i was a kid,the ones you use to construct different things.I wonder if they categorize 'blocks' as boys toys at the toy store.If they do,then the toy company needs to be sued for false propoganda of gender preferences.Me and my sis both were girls and we loved blocks very much..Thanks to dad for buying us sensible toys.BTw..I am a doctor now..a female doctor, and my sister is an engineer..a female engineer and well! pink is not the fav color of either of us.(Not that i discriminate against pink).I like earthy colors and i like bike rides and i really don't like makeup..I vote for unisex toys..Toys don't need to be gender categorized at all.Infact , i find the word 'Tomboy' stupid.Women who don't play with barbies are called tomboys..why? Anyone can like cars and anyone can like barbies,they don't need to be abnormal for liking things that are not what they are expected to like.. The concept of 'Gender appropriate toys' is to be done with.I want to ask , "Is is inappropriate for a girl to play with toy cars?" If so , why?Unisex toys is the way to go.Infact, parents must take their kids to the toystore and allow them to pick whatever they want.If boys pick a barbie so be it,it is just that the boy likes to play with human figures.If a girl picks cars, well it is just that the girl likes cars.Ya know.
Btw, did you hear about this russian sexual harrasment court case where the judge actually told the woman that it is right of the bosses to make sexual advances to the women employees..I actually blogged about it in my 'An Antidote to anger' blog..Or perhaps my 'Not so Daily Ramble blog', I forget which one though.
Also,I am gonna repost this comment on one of my blogs too ,just so that my readers get to read my views on this issue too.Many hugs and take care"END OF QUOTE
