Feminists: Leave My Boys Alone

This has already been argued ad nauseum when the feminist movement emerged in the 70's! The feminists finally surrendered when they and their friends had children of their own and found that boys disassemble dolls and girls cry when they do! A new generation of female tyrants comes along and replays a theory that dies over and over again! Did any of these women have brothers? My two sisters had 8 brothers. No feminists in my family!

I seem to remember that within the last 10 years or so, some of the 70's era Feminists, actually realized they had made a mistake embracing feminism. Something about they now wished they had married and had children. . . since now, they're to old to do so. I wonder how they'd answer this question.

Or the boys will pick up the baby doll, move its limbs to make it resemble a gun, and say "bang bang"....

I'm a boy of the early 1950s;

My sisters had dolls, babies made of pink rubber in that era.

We were kind of poor; and I had very few toys. But liked to make my own bow and arrows. It was for me only a matter of time, before I started shooting arrows at those dolls. A cool pastime! Lol! Yeah, my siters were appalled. I was a marksman too!

This past week an episode of Sesame Street set off a firestorm of debate over whether a boy muppet named Telly should be ashamed that his muppet friends caught him playing with dolls.

In one corner "traditionalists" who called out the episode as gender and sex confused. In the other "modern feminists" who were offended by almost everything the traditionalists said and believe.

In light of these op-eds and arguments I decided to do a bit of personal surveying for myself.

I popped the question to my bride and her best friend as the two couples were headed to...
