A Change For The Better?

Sorry readers, I am so confused about something I have been seeing everywhere. I can see both sides, for and against. You get to be my third party as I lay down pros and cons. It is my hope that I’ll have a solid opinion after this post.

My dilemma: The recently-released American Boy doll.

Pro: With all the negative influences young boys have, it would be nice to have a positive one.

Con: I discovered American Girl when I was seven or eight. It was Samantha, who lived in 1904.   With the name “American Girl” I felt so special. These were only for girls!

Con: What the boys are wearing. I know that’s the style, but the one I saw looked like a thug, wearing a gray hoodie pulled over his eyes. Wouldn’t you think parents would want him to be better dressed?

Con: It’s part of their “diversity collection.” Code for politically correct.

Pro: The books taught me that anything was possible for a girl. Every kid needs to learn that.

Okay, that didn’t help. I’d love to hear your comments! And can you continue my lists?
