Barbie wants little girls to be gay

In a bit weird news, the conservative group Concerned Women for America (and their Culture & Family Institute) has decided that Barbie is promoting gender confusion.

Yes, you read that right.

A conservative group claims that Mattel's popular doll Barbie is promoting gender confusion among children. Concerned Women for America says that because the company's website for the doll asks children their sex Matell is giving in "to the homosexual agenda".

The questionnaire provides 3 boxes: "girl", "boy", "I don't know".

"It’s the idea that well, maybe people aren’t born a particular biological sex, or they are but that shouldn’t determine their gender identity," said Bob Knight, the director of CWA's Culture & Family Institute. "And that’s a very big component of the homosexual activist agenda now." [link]

For all my issues with Barbie, "gender confusion" has never made the list.
