Wendy’s is doing the same thing.
Will wonders never cease.
Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.
I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.
No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.
Makes depressing, gross, sense.
The Hub tweeted this photo on their official Twitter along with the caption:
The Breezies are coming this Sat.! RT to help Fluttershy give them an extra warm Ponyville welcome!
They look different from their G3 ancestors yet in many ways they are still the same. It will be wonderful to have Breezies back in our pony lives!
NY Toy Fair 2014 Roundup Part 2
Photo 1: Like last year, new brushable characters are scarce at Toy Fair. However, one has finally popped up outside of a set with Equestria Girl dolls. The above ponies are decorated with cute pastel dots. Pictured are Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Holly Dash! (Photo on the right is Holly Dash’s blind bag figure from wave 7).
Photo 2: Here is a clearer shot of the deluxe Chrysalis, new Equestria Girls dolls and Photo Finish brushable. She has a cute fabric outfit. These are reportedly Toys R Us exclusives.
Photo 3: Fun shot of the POP ponies.
Photo 4: Another overview shot. New items not mentioned in last post: Styling Strands Rarity (middle), MLP Chutes & Ladders (top right), and Design-a-Pony Princess Cadance (bottom left). Also in the top right corner are re-releases of Fashion Style Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie with new outfits.

Stumbled upon these for the princely sum of 20p earlier today and my sister and I were nostalgia-geeking and squeeing like a couple of children for about half an hour.
What if the sexualisation of My Little Pony stems from a psychological compulsion some men feel - or have been taught to feel by centuries of patriarchal indoctrination - to take that which could be considered feminine and reduce it to nothing but its sexual potential; to…
