No. Just, no. You can have your biased Title IX, you can have a majority of college admissions, you can have Affirmative Action, I’ll give you legal infanticide and gendercide… Hell, I’ll pony up the $1,000 a year that is standing in the way of Sandra Fluke’s vagina becoming an Olympic champion.
But you do not get to mess with Lego, dammit!
When I was a kid, from roughly age five to fifteen, I amassed a collection of Lego briks that could have filled a medium-sized passenger van… the whole thing, not just the cargo compartment. At 31, I still have a small collection of favorite Lego sets and constantly wish I had a larger living space to expand. My two daughters, ages six and three, seem to have inherited daddy’s Lego-gene and have taken to the toys themselves. Given free range of the local Lego Store, both head directly for the Lego Friends products… apparently, my six-year old daughter is a misogynist.
