War On X-Mas Heats Up As Toy Store Inverts Gender Norms
Nov 29, 2012
Swedish toymaker Leklust will undoubtedly incur the wrath of One Million Moms and other fake advocacy groups with its Christmas catalog, which depicts a boy playing with a dolly, a girl shooting a Nerf gun, among other non-conforming imagery.
