Hey Target, WTF?
So…I was browsing the Target website because they’ve FINALLY decided to ship to Canada. And what did I discover in the toy department?
See for yourself:
OK, let’s, for the sake of argument, accept the pinkwashing habits of toy manufacturers who, for whatever reason, mistakenly believe that little girls won’t love playing with a toy if it’s not PINK! and PURPLE! and PRETTY! Why does the “girl’s” version cost twenty bucks more?!
It’s the exact same toy. IT DOES ALL THE SAME THINGS. The only difference is the color plastic used to make it. What the hell?
You’ve heard how women’s razors cost more than men’s even though they’re essentially identical? Well I guess Target decided to use the brand name of this scooter as inspiration to continue that obnoxious cultural trend.
Not cool, Target.
