Gleeman: I just want to know why the Rebelle gun comes with safety glasses and a neat holster, while those are extra buys for the boy's guns even though they cost more?

Also, this:

When you are starting to claim sexism based on the color of a toy, you should probably question what you are doing with your life.

brigid_fitch: spmkk: brigid_fitch: "Typically I'd start ranting about the "pinking and shrinking" of cool stuff in order to market them for girls (farking pink Legos....)"


Dude. Whatever it takes to get girls to play with Legos. Seriously. I don't care if they have to infuse glitter into the plastic and paint the bricks with farking nail polish to get girls to choose building a Lego construction over brushing Barbie's hair. If it works, and more girls start engineering shiat, more power to them.

It's easy to market Legos to little girls without making it farking pink: Put girls in the commercials and on the packaging! I hated my Barbies and played with my brother's GI Joes, model railroad, and Hot Wheels because they were way cooler. It was other little girls and their parents who thought I was weird. They'd whisper to my mother, "Do you want her to grow up to be a tomboy?" And Mom would panic and buy me an EZ Bake oven, banning me from playing with my brother's rescue copter.

There's a company now that markets science, construction, and engineering toys for girls without making them pink. They just make the commercials and packaging fun and interesting and feature girls: www.Goldieblox.com


Neat link, bookmarked for possible future gift needs and yea nothing like that in the 70's or 80's.

You're so sexist. Why can't girls play with Barbies AND engineer things? Why is the phalocentric manocracy of America so bent on controlling women?

Just bought the Rebelle bow for my 7-year-old daughter. Don't really care about the color...just happy it isn't ×÷#_=& Barbie. She'll wind up painting it some other color anyways...

I think everything else is either a book or a MLP pony. Pony is a four letter word right now...

you just made them a sale for my niece. She's a crafter, but her grandma is buying her tons of art supplies for Christmas. Nice buidling project. This and and I'm thinking a Shel Silverstien book, since I got her "Where the Sidewalk Ends" last year and that went over like gangbusters.

Relatively Obscure: The Hunger Games and one Katniss Everdeen. The character was a rough and tumble young woman because she had to be. Because in her world, there was no room for being delicate. Strength, determination and the ability to hunt for food meant survival.

Too bad she never actually looks strong in any depictions of her I see.


This fictional character is a bit better.


I've actually read the books.

Katniss is in no way a strong anything. She's your typical, annoying, "conflicted" teenaged girl... That can hunt and is willing to sleep in trees.

Tough chick!

RogermcAllen: Nerf sells shiat.
Little girls get their parents to buy them pink shiat.
If nerf doesn't make their shiat pink, little girls won't get their parents to buy it.

This isn't called sexist, it's called making money.  Sexist should be applied to the poor excuses for parents who raise their little girls to think that pink is a girl's color.


Pink is good for little homo boys too.

Or they were until one day we decided to wade through the swamp in the bird refuge and I had them on.

XanthPrime: Why can't pink be for boys?


drumhellar: XanthPrime: Why can't pink be for boys?

Used to be that way a century or so ago - Pink for boys, blue for girls.

Pink used to be representative of violence and blood, since it is nearly red.

Blue? Not sure, but decidedly non-violent.


Blue has always been viewed as a "cool" color. "Serene", "peaceful", etc.

The idea of blue (instead of pink) for boys is decidedly modern; even as late as the early 20th c., boys wore pink. According to Smithsonian magazine, "Pink and [powder] blue arrived as colors for babies in the mid-19th century, yet the two colors were not promoted as gender signifiers until just before World War I." [Source].

Oh yeah, and little boys also wore dresses.

Quantum Apostrophe: BadReligion: Quantum Apostrophe: BadReligion: Girls like colorful things. My 13 year old daughter has 3 (real) guns, 1 of them is pink, another is purple. The 3rd is black.

Why? Do you live in some kind of war-torn third-world lawless decrepit republic?

She really enjoys going shooting with me. It is something we bond over, and it teaches her responsibility. She knows how to properly handle firearms. It will also be good when she is out on her own, because a woman having a gun is, IMO, more important than a man having a gun, because it gives her an edge if someone bigger than her wants to victimize her.

Nice narrative. You probably even believe it.


Some people also believe 2+2=4.   This is what happens when you educate the rif-raf.
 
2013-12-08 08:47:02 PM  
Based on some of the responses in this thread, my understanding is that if a company markets a pink product to girls, you *have* to buy them that product; under no circumstances are you allowed to buy that whatever you feel is best for them. Is that correct? Because that's the only reasonable explanation that I can come up with for all the outrage.

shamanwest: 1. If this is supposed to be for Hunger Games, why the ever-living fark is it pink? It doesn't have to be pink. Just put Hunger Games logo on it, and every little girl in the country will want it.


That Hunger Games logo isn't going to come cheap. But make something that can be related to it inside a kids head as being the same and you will make a whole lot more money.

fusillade762: Not as sexist as this:

[www.sunshinecoasttoyshobbies.com.au image 495x559]


True, but my six-year-old niece has had one of those for two years, and every boy that comes over to the house plays with it. It's "washed" Barbie doll clothes, army men, loose change, assorted Lego, and every toy that will fit into its drum. Hell, I've played with it.
 
2013-12-08 09:01:55 PM  

SpiderQueenDemon: OgreMagi: I'm sure they are thinking of the rising popularity of bows because of Katniss in the Hunger Games.

A friend of mine owns an archery range and she's seen an increase of tweens and teens learning the sport since the movie.

'Brave' may also have been a contributing factor. My little goddaughter has a compound bow now and has to be reminded that the Scottish accent isn't necessary to fire it. We did, however, let her shoot a flaming arrow to light the bonfire for a recent party, and kid nailed it. Right in the middle of center mass like Princess Merida and her Questionable Auntie taught her.

For Christmas, I am sewing her a dress like Merida's and husband is making her a very light chainmail shirt to wear over her jerkin and leggings for the Renaissance Faire. Aluminum chainmail is of a weight appropriate for seven-year-olds, I think.


If it's a California Ren Faire, then there is a very high likelihood that my friend runs the archery booth.

Also, I disagree, the Scottish accent is absolutely essential for proper archery.

ggecko: This article is full of fail.

They talk about polite and pink and how there is nothing pretty or pink about survival.  Um, who decides that pink is pretty, or that some other color is about "survival"?

And isn't it the author that is making assumptions here?  They make a crossbow that is pink and purple so it is THEM that assumes this is for girls??

The irony is, if this was for boys, the author would have slanted the article to talk about how we shouldn't be marketing "weapons" to little kids.


Anyone who says there's no pink in being a survivalist has never gutted anything.

I'd rough and tumble with catnest.  Haven't heard that expression in quite a while.  Or is it an expression.  Maybe they are modifiers.  You could say "The character was a rough young woman".  Maybe you could say "The character was a tumble young woman".  She just happened to be both rough and tumble.  I'd tumble for her, if you know what I mean.  And yes, it does involve boy george.

super_grass: > don't market products to girls
> people complain about leaving girls out

> market products to girls

Solution: ignore the whiners. You'll never be happy trying to appease them.


They aren't complaining about marketing products to girls. They're complaining about this idea that girls all love the color pink. Not all of us do, and it's occasionally a bit annoying to, say, need to buy something and  only have a pink option. And by 'occasionally' I mean 'after the first ten times'.

/Case in point: I currently am the owner of a pair of pink boots because they were the only waterproof ones in my size I could find. Not because I like pink, just because I need my feet to be warm.

I think it's all the same thing at the end of the day. The fact that they can be capable, strong characters is totally secondary to them being teen girls. In though, action, looks...

This character spends more time worrying about which boy she likes more, or doesn't, (it's all so confusing!) than fighting in the revolution she sparked.

Would you expect a male character to receive the same treatment?

No, a male character would step up and become a super action hero. His personal relationships would be the kiss after he singlehandedly saved the world.

Pink has nothing to do with survival? Wish I could agree. Used to be primary orienteer and a first responder doing search and rescue across New England. The only gear I never lost in brush and never had anyone steal from my pack was the stuff I painted pink. Didn't care that some folks thought I was gay for it(girls included on this one), I was the only one that always had his own gear on the trail. It was an unwritten rule in my personal survival training.

I'm a dude, and my experience is that pink and survival can be connected.

Prolly cheaper online unless you have a less than standard foot shape or size that makes you have to try them on first (or go to a store and try on a pair then find them online).
