Nothing To See Here: Hence the name Hasbro, bro

they should break the company into two separate entities: Hasbro and Hasbroad.

Most homes already have a gender-neutral oven. It's about the size of a washing machine and lives in the kitchen. Parental guidance advised.

This just in: Feminist theory, an ever-expanding realm of academia and a socio-political movement with widely varying schools of thought that incorporates scientific studies in the fields sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, psychology, biology, and is built on a foundation of thousands of years of philosophical inquiry, was debunked by some white heterosexual men in an online forum.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: This is the most significant cultural milestone since 1985 when Hasbro stopped making a "WHITES ONLY" EZ-Bake oven.

...which itself is a knockoff of a German design from several decades earlier that we'd like to forget about.

Gyrfalcon: What, pray tell, is a "gender neutral" oven?

It's just a marketing gimmick, it's the same product without the tampon holder.

...after online petition gets over 44,000 signatures

So in other words, more signatures than the average secession petition.

Kinda puts that whole silliness in perspective, doesn't it?

RedPhoenix122: I'm still waiting for the "E-Z Barbeque Grill"

Or the E-Z Home Distillery. That would be educational and maybe even profitable, too.

This is Fark, that's normally the initial approach.

ElBarto79: Theaetetus: ElBarto79: Wow seems I really touched a nerve did I? I'd be happy to have a reasoned discussion but I don't have much patience for snark and mockery which is what so many self-described feminists seem to fall back on all too often when someone challenges their convictions.

Aw, u mad, bro? I'm sorry if my snark and mockery made you tear up. I honestly didn't mean you to take it harshly, but rather to question some of your incorrect assumptions.

No I'm not a doctor, but it doesn't appear you are either. I do have a Masters in engineering and years of experience in science and research so I am *somewhat* familiar with the scientific method. I report my observations with young kids and I stand by my assessment; boys and girls are different, period.

I'm amused by the fact that you think your third sentence is consistent with your second.

The current trend of our society is to make everything gender neutral and co-ed and I think this is a mistake. In fact I would go so far as to say some of the problems we see with men in our society currently, including (yes I will go there) several recent mass shootings which all involved men could be at least partly a result of a society that seems to see masculinity and male traits as behavior to be discouraged.

... and that's it, thread over. We've gone to Extreme Derp.

Like I said, the fallback position of snark and mockery. This tells me all I need to know. Have a nice night.

Dude, you're claiming mass shootings are the result of Easy Bake ovens not being pink enough. You expect me not to snark and mock you? Hell, I've got you farky'd so that I can remember to mock you for this in the future!

probably a toy with a heating element in it that needs to be plugged in and isn't pink, doesn't have flowers painted on it... just a guess...

Shouldn't they have been doing this all along?

Or is it because boys don't like pink anymore?
