Some girl, it seems, got her panties in a wad over the differentiation, according to Slate. Maybe she was getting her boxers in a wad over it, which might actually explain things.
I wonder how she deals with Mens and Ladies rooms.
Anyway, McDonald's is going to stop calling the toys "boys" and "girls" but by the actual name of the toy. Like "My Little Pony" or "Skylanders" or whatever.
The pantywaists who came up with this and gave in to this all seem to claim that you really can't have "boy toys" or "girl toys" just like you can't have "man jobs" or "woman jobs." Only, I've still not been hired as a wet nurse, despite my constant pleas for such a job. And I don't know of any women professional sperm donors. Or football players. Or presidents.
Here's what I'm gonna do, and I want you to do it too. Go into a McDonald's and order a Happy Meal. And when they ask you which toy, and name some toy you've never heard of -- just what the heck is "Skylanders?" -- do like I'm going to do and say, "I don't know, I want the one for boys." Or girls, if you have a girl that wants a girl toy. I'm going to ask for boy toys, because I have two young grandsons. I might ask for a girl toy, just to screw with them.
Do this every time you go to McDonald's. I know I'm going to. It should be fun! And McDonald's is all about the fun.
