Merry Gender-Neutral Christmas!

To combat gender stereotyping of children, catalog publisher Top Toy has gender-swapped their newest Swedish publication, showing girls playing with guns and boys playing with dolls:

“With the new gender thinking, there is nothing that is right or wrong. It’s not a boy or a girl thing, it’s a toy for children,” Top Toy director of sales Jan Nyberg told TT news agency.

Personally, I enjoyed playing with my friend’s Barbies when I was little, but I think my mom objected to them on the grounds of crass commercialism and reinforcing negative body image.
