Quote:Hasbro created confusion Thursday when it announced that it would drop the “Mr.” from the brand’s name in order to be more inclusive and so all could feel “welcome in the Potato Head world.” It also said it would sell a new playset this fall without the Mr. and Mrs. designations that will let kids create their own type of potato families, including two moms or two dads.

It's okay, because now 3+3 = potato.

What a bunch of potato heads.
America will soon have its very own 'spudnik' moment!
So basically, there will still be mr. potato, mrs potato, and a family potato set sold.

The company can do what it wishes. It's goal is to make money for its investors. If the new family set will sell and make money, more power to them. If folks don't like it, they don't have to buy it.

Because how other people's children are taught has no effect on how our children will be pressured to live and how our politics will go in a few years. If other people want to teach their kids there are 59 sexes, and if someone's able to make money off that idea, then it's all to the good. Same with Abortion Barbie, Sex Worker Bratz dolls, and the undoubtedly forthcoming Fisher Price Satanic Mass play set.

If you raise your children properly, they will be able to resist the pressures from the other kids.   If you don't raise them right, maybe they will be able to resist, maybe they won't.  

Do you know scientifically how many sexes there are?   Just curious.

If a company wants to make a sex worker doll, that is their choice.   BTW, they make them all the time for adults, you might even have some friends who have one you don't know about.    This is America, folks can do what they wish as long as it isn't illegal.   The market will determine if it is successful.   

There seem to be a bunch of people with the shorts in a bunch over what others are doing.   Lots and lots of time spent pointing fingers and saying look over there at what they are doing.   Remember the verse about the plank in one own's eye.  It should be read frequently.

If folks would spend as much time doing good for their fellow man as they do pointing out the faults in their fellow man the world would be a much, much better place.   Just sayin.

You made 5 points, I’ll respond to each of them.

1. Parents can raise children perfectly but if the society and culture itself is geared towards exploiting and manipulating/brainwashing such children and adults then it is going to be very hard to resist that, even with perfect parenting.

2. Are you really gonna hit me with the “ackshucally there’s a couple of exceptions”. In the vast majority (99%), there are only 2 sexes. 

3. You don’t seem to know the difference between “being allowed to do something” and “is it the right thing to do”. That is what we are fighting against, the degeneracy and lack of morality which has pervaded societal norms because of the false concepts of “liberty” and “freedom” which let man enter into their deepest and darkest wills. 

4. I don’t think anyone here is a hypocrite when it comes to this stuff. Know the difference between being hypocritical and just criticizing something morally wrong. 

5. No, just no lol. Bettering society has to be done both ways, including criticizing and bringing a stop to immorality.

What do you mean by brainwashing?   From birth we were all subjected to outside influences.   My parents raised me to be of good character, and I raised my son to be of good character.   When he would ask question X, I would explain why that thought was wrong.   If I wasn't able to do that, maybe he would believe in X.   He is a good kid with a good head on his shoulders.  

You didn't address the number of sexes scientifically.   Yes, predominantly there are 2.   Does that mean a company can not make toys for folks who don't fall into those 2 categories?

Hasbro is in the business to make money for its shareholders.   Did you get all bent out of shape when bicycle companies in the 80's started making unisex bikes.   When I was growing up, the boys bike had a bar that would hurt like heck when I guy hit it, the girls bike had a low bar, from the days when girls wore dresses and didn't lift their leg over the seat.   That changed, the bar was put in the middle.   It sort of worked for everyone.   Hasbro is offering a new makeup to a toy, if you don't like the new version, you can still buy the old ones.   It really is simple and nothing to get bent out of shape over.

There is no sin in the manufacture of a toy that has multiple parts where you can make two male potatoes with a baby potato who is male or female or vise versa.   Maybe two little girls each want a girl potato with their baby sister potato.  Pretty certain the instructions aren't going to be written for a two father family this is how you build each potato, and for a two mommy family this is how you build one.   If you can point out the moral failure in a toy, please do so, but it ain't going to happen.   

Great, start by criticizing immorality, but there is nothing immoral about this toy which is made out of plastic parts and designed for a childs entertainment.   It is immoral to attempt to make a moral judgement about something which can not be immoral.   Next folks will be saying screw drivers and hammers are immoral for some reason.   It is nonsense.

Remarkable that you ignore the influence of peers on child development and presume that you have 100% control over how your kid turns out. And nice dodge, too: how is your individual kid's wondrousness working to undo the leftist political tilt we're enduring as a population because other people's kids aren't as wonderful as yours? And whom will your kid marry?

Yes, I do.

Obviously it's their choice. And it's people's choices to sell heroin, publish porn, do abortions, put Jews in camps (which was legal in certain places in the late 30s and 40s), throw Christians to lions (also legal at one time) and everything else. And we have choices to deem what they do good or not good, and as things that should be legal or not legal.

We're social animals. What we do affects others, and what others do affect us.

Libertarian types are radically obtuse about culture, treating it like a TV channel to flip rather than like the air we all breathe that can't be turned on or off like a light switch.
