‘Stripping Away All Innocence’ : Doll Company Releases Book Urging Girls to Explore Their Gender Identity

This year, Townhall reported earlier how Barbie went “woke” by unveiling a collectible doll modeled after transgender actress Laverne Cox.

Shortly after, Townhall covered how "transsexual" activist Buck Angel, who was born a biological female, said in a Fox News interview that it's "inappropriate" for the transgender community to push their agenda on children. 

“It’s inappropriate for our community to keep pushing this narrative as if anyone can be trans, cause that’s not true,” Angel said. "Our community is failing our community," Angel added. "We’re not being loving and we're not being caring. We’re being weird."

But, Barbie isn’t the only doll company to go woke. The company American Girl has come under fire after releasing a book targeted at young girls that pushes them to question their “gender identity.”

“A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image: How to love yourself, live life to the fullest, and celebrate all kinds of bodies” teaches girls ages 8 to 11 how to “live comfortably in their own skin,” American Girl’s website notes. But, sections of the book teach their audience that they can alter their “gender expression” to “feel at home in your body.”

“The way you show your gender to the world through clothes and behaviors is your gender expression,” the book states, according to The Daily Wire. “Your gender expression can be feminine, masculine, or somewhere in between – and it might change! Maybe you’ll experiment with bright dresses and long, feminine hairstyles. Or you might try baggy shorts, plaid shirts, and a buzzed haircut. Your gender expression should make you feel at home in your body.”

“Parts of your body may make you feel uncomfortable and you may want to change the way you look. … ‘That’s totally OK!” the book continues. “If you haven’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

And, the book reportedly tells young readers that there are organizations across the country that can help them with their gender identity if they do not have an adult they can trust.

Parents reportedly voiced outrage over the book on social media.

“I will no longer buy any of your dolls or accessories for my grandchildren! Shame on you for introducing a book to young girls to change their gender. No more stay in your lane,” one critic said, according to the New York Post.

“How sad that a book tells a child there are medicines to take to stop puberty or if parents won’t listen seek organizations that will, this is all gender-related,” another commenter wrote, the Post noted. “How sad this world is becoming that American Doll takes on the role (sic) of thinking they should give gender assignment advice in a book. Shame on you.”

One mother wrote that the content in American Girl’s book was “stripping away all innocence,” Daily Mail reported.

Allie Beth Stuckey pointed out how American Girl’s books have come a long way since its inception in 1986.

In the early days of American Girl, its books taught young girls about bravery, leadership, and other values through the lens of a historical character. For example, a fictional character named Addy who escapes slavery, Josefina Montoya, who is living in the American southwest at the time it was under Mexican rule, or Felicity, who is growing up in Virginia at the onset of the American Revolution. Through these stories, the characters overcame the obstacles they faced in these formative eras of American history.
