(TeaParty.org) – Is there some sort of secret SJW Olympics going on to see who can get offended by the stupidest thing?
If so, Michigan lawmakers are certainly in the lead.
While their state is home to the notorious Flint water contamination, while Detroit continues to resemble Middle Eastern war zones, Michigan lawmakers apparently care more about, inclusiveness or something in McDonald’s Happy Meals.
To be fair, it surprising that by 2018 there’s no gender-neutral Happy Meals, something that is honestly worthy of admiration on the part of McDonald’s corporate. We definitely need more gender stereotypes in today’s culture of gender insanity.
Michigan lawmakers not only disagree, but they apparently think it’s the business of the government to decide which cultural wave McDonald’s rides on.
As Detroit Free Press reports, 15 lawmakers have sponsored a resolution to denounce gender-specific kids’ meals.
“Often, the designated ‘boy toys’ are action figures or building toys; typically in primary colors, whereas ‘girl toys’ are often stuffed animals and are usually in a pastel color scheme,’’ the resolution states.
Gee, it’s almost as if the Happy Meals cater to what little boys and girls generally each enjoy.
“This is a significant issue as billions of these meals are sold every year and this practice can influence and limit children’s imaginations and interests by promoting some toys as only suitable for girls and others only for boys,” the resolution continues.
Really? In a state where children can’t get clean drinking water, you’re concerned about children’s interests being limited by the toy in their Happy Meal?
“Customers should simply be offered the choice of toy. Example: Would you like a Transformer or a My Little Pony,” the resolution suggests.
As long as my hazy memory of Happy Meals serves, customers can simply ask for which toy they’d like. It’s a fast food establishment, not the Hunger Games choosing ceremony.
Of all the issues facing our nation’s children, facing the slightly awkward situation of asking the 17-year-old behind the counter at McDonald’s for a My Little Pony for their son seems to be pretty far down on the list.
