Was in the store and saw this candy:
"YORKIE: IT'S NOT FOR GIRLS"
My daughter was offended. Me, too. And I'm thinking, HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Look, I don't want to be all 'there's no difference between women and men' but I do think stuff like this - the girl in the crossed out red circle - isn't helping with treating everyone equally. It isn't helping with people understanding gender is more expansive than just male and female. It isn't helping at all.
If you believe wikipedia,
Special versions for use in British Ministry of Defence ration packs read It's not for civvies. In 2006 a special edition that was for girls was sold, wrapped in pink.
Which I think makes me even MORE offended.
Aside from the original milk chocolate bar, several variants are available, such as "raisin and biscuit" flavour, "honeycomb" flavour, and Yorkie Ice Cream. So I'm curious - since when has liking a particular flavor been gender-determined?
How about defining ourselves by ourselves and our likes, rather than what we're not or what we don't like?
Am I making too much of this - or do you, too, want to call this out as wrong?
