People like to talk, to express their opinions - if for nothing else than it stops them feeling like they`re the `only fascist in the village.`
Don`t forget, all this LGBTQ+, gender-neutral crap came about because a tiny, tiny proportion of the population spent their entire lives shouting very, very loudly about what a terrible oppressed state they were in (go to Syria?). So we end up with gender neutral dolls, banning of gender specific titles . Most people don`t really care one way or the other - which is as it should be - but their acquiescence has allowed these weird gender/ race/ fascists to achieve change out of all proportion to their demographic size. I don`t care AT ALL if someone is Gay/trans whatever, I do NOT care what my neighbour does, it`s nowt to do with me, we just get on with our lives. But having it thrust into the mainstream (censoring language, relationship classes in primary schools etc) is for many people going too far and they need to voice thier concerns. Rightly. I know this is just a car forum - but it`s through exchange of ideas such as this, the acorns if you like, that the general concensus gathers momentum. If everyone just `shuts the f*** up and buries their head then there are no limits to the lengths these people will go to establish `their` world. They`re half way there now.
Then again I could be talking shit soI`ll just shut up.
FFS Steve what a load of :turd: :lol:

You are right on the money imo!
I don't like being told what to think or what is acceptable, and I will have my own opinions on things which I keep to myself most of the time :cheers:

I see that Fireman Sam has been banned from Brigade promo material for being too male so ... :roll:
It seems that this is the way the kid's stuff is going these days as everything strives to be "inclusive".

It's a toy for children! Are phrases like "positive impact of inclusivity", "doll line free of labels" and "encourage people to think more broadly about how all kids can benefit from doll play" over-analysing the situation?
I fear for what might happen to Action Man in the future though!

Andrew.
Andrew how dare you!
It's Action-Person!! :lol:

You can't just go assuming his gender now :lol: :lol:

You just did! :D
Actually, I think a doll modelled on an ambiguous gender action person / athlete with both male and female attributes, where it is almost impossible to determine the sex, could be a big seller.
Now, where would they find somebody to model it on? :whistle:

If national treasure Fatima owns a Capri and is on this forum, no offence intended. :)

It won't be the first time she has heard it I'm sure!

But hang on a minute - if Fatima doesn't own a Capri then you are happy for her to be offended? :)

I'm sure she won't be offended by an immature man's poor attempt at humour.
