I heard a man, a father, on a YouTube kids video, tell him son….. Not to pick a certain toy because that particular toy “was for girls”.
That got me thinking. This black man is telling his boy he can’t have a toy that girls “typically” use for play.
Some white mom tells her daughter to keep her purse close because criminals are often black males? How are these two scenarios different?
This is how we teach sexism, descrimination, and division to our children. This is how we pass down segregation to our future… And the hate continues.
An individual is going to be different from BOTH parents. This individual has a God-Given RIGHT to choose for him/herself. Along the way: individuals, adults, media, many different stimuli, will try and influence.
Of all that’s influential, why the fuck (excuse my French but this has me boiling) would a parent choose to limit his /her child’s growth, identity, social inclusion, diverse acceptance, and enriched future by disallowed a toy a girl usually has. Why would a parent choose to be a negative influence.
To all of you bitching “it’s just one toy” or “It’s not that serious”…
You’re apart of the problem. It takes one lesson to learn bullshit nonsense. It takes one instance for hate to be planted into a child….
Don’t be ” that ” Dad….
