literally the world


reminder that when my sister was told that our 6 yr old nephew likes ‘hatchimals’ (where I think the object is to nurture the toy till it hatches a plushie? or something like that) and wants one, her response was ‘but that’s a girl’s toy!’ and when i said why, what makes it a girl toy?, she responded ‘well you just wait till he brings it to school with him and gets made fun of, lol’. with a tone of, that is only right. there is nothing wrong with this idea at all. ?????

she literally thought ‘oh, he likes something i think isn’t meant for his gender, but if you insist it’s nbd, I can’t wait to see him be bullied out of liking it – and potentially into feeling bad about himself because he’ll still like it but wont feel like it’s okay to – by other kids’. 

so funny. /sarcasm/
