American Girl, American Shame

“If you haven’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity. If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you. Turn to the resources on page 95 for more information.”

What you have just read is an excerpt from  “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image Book,” a guidebook that was published on November 1st by American Girl.

The book, believe it or not, is written for young girls between 3 to 12 years of age.

Let that sink in. Mattel, the parent company of American Girl is somehow under the delusion that promoting puberty blockers, which in some cases are used to chemically castrate sex offenders is fine for girls this young.

The book appears to contradict how it is described on their website. On the site it makes this claim about the book:

“Every girl needs to learn to live comfortably in her own skin, and this book will show the way. In these pages, a girl will find everything she needs to know about loving her unique self, staying confident through her body‘s many changes, and appreciating her body for the life it lets her live. Full of activities, tips, crafts, and real-girl stories, this book is a feel-good reminder that all bodies are worthy of love and respect.”

If you read only that description, you would think that it was an enlightening read for young girls. That’s exactly what they want you to believe. Then within the pages they stealthily weave in their real message. Designed to add confusion were there should be none, by poisoning naïve and innocent minds with suggestive misdirection.

Mattel seems to have gone full woke on this subject. Earlier this year they released their first transgender Barbie Doll. At that time, they partnered with Lavern Cox on the design of the doll and the release. Naturally, what any transgender doll release needs is Hollywood blather trying to make the scandalous appear normal.

“I think in an environment where trans children have been used as a political football, where trans kids are being attacked, that this can also be a celebration of transness, and also a space for them to dream, understand, and be reminded that trans is beautiful. That there’s hope and possibility for them to be themselves.”

“What excites me most about her being out in the world is that trans young people can see her and maybe get to purchase her and play with her.”

Sigh, what is so absolutely appalling about this is even a toy manufacturer thinks they have the right to use their position to influence young children. All the while knowing full well, that what they are peddling is not beneficial to the vast majority of kids.
