United Nations Pushes “HeforShe” Dolls for Boys

There certainly have to be some intermediate steps between birth and your son’s ingestion of puberty blockers and subsequent “gender-reassignment surgery,” and the United Nations is on the case. UN Women’s HeforShe initiative has teamed up with a new company to push dolls for boys so your child can get in touch with his “feminine side.”

Writes PR Newswire, “HeForShe, UN Women’s global solidarity movement for gender equality has teamed up with start-up company … Boy Story to launch two special edition action dolls named Billy and Mason. The action dolls challenges [sic] current prejudice surrounding boys playing with dolls, and promotes the notion that both boys and girls should have the same opportunity to bond with a special playmate, and that all children, regardless of their gender, need to learn nurturing, emotional intelligence, and empathy.”

Created by Boy Story founders Kristen Johnson and Katie Jarvis, Mason is a “Caucasian/Hispanic doll,” informs Circa, while Billy is “African American” (meaning black, not a North African Arab or white Afrikaner). It was not reported if they live in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district or NYC’s Greenwich Village, or if they actually identify as boy dolls.

The company espouses the principles “How we play can change the world” and “Harmful stereotypes start young,” which, presumably, would include stereotyping humans as singular among creatures in (supposedly) not having innately determined sex roles.

Boy Story writes, “Girls should know that dolls are for everyone” and “Boys should know they can have dolls that look like them. They can learn to nurture, relate, and develop emotional intelligence.”

Interestingly, though, Mason and Billy represent children who can walk and talk. Wouldn’t nurturing be better encouraged if they were infants, requiring bottle feeding and diaper changes?

But that girly stuff just won’t do for this sex-stereotype-busting company, which bills their creations as “Action Dolls.” Funny, when I was a lad we had “action figures,” things such as G.I. Joe and Star Trek characters. Yet at 18” tall, I imagine Billy or Mason could just kick the G.I. out of Joe, an activity boys just might prefer to bottle feeding.
