Getting kids toys for their birthdays or holidays is somewhat of a no-brainer. But a lot of parents were concerned by this special doll. This transgender doll, which has pigtails and a red and yellow polka dot dress, was spotted in a Russian toy store.
The doll is blonde and has feminine features but when you look under the dress...
Surprise! The toy has male genitals. When the news broke, many people took to social media to share their thoughts on the matter.
According to La Verdad, one user asked:
Is it okay to make toys like this one for children?
All that's left to do is buy a medical tool kit so the kid can learn how to perform an amputation.
However, while a growing number of people expressed their outrage, a few Internet users suggested it might be a manufacturing error. One comment reads:
Have you considered that it might just be a manufacturing defect? Or that maybe they accidentally put a female head on a male body?
As shocking as it may sound, this actually isn't the first transgender doll to hit store shelves. In 2014, a fairy doll that had male genitals outraged Argentinians.
Although this is still very much taboo, we here at Oh my mag would like to call our readers to respect and embrace diversity. All genders, chosen or otherwise, are valid and deserving of respect.
