People have a way of picking their battles. Today I will be talking about two distinct battles that are being fought. One of them is by a mom who had a problem with some action figures at Toys R Us. The others are a bunch of mom’s that think it is okay for their little girls to speak nasty words.
One mom, in particular, took issue with the Breaking Bad action figures being sold at Toys R Us. I have a question for these moms, and anyone else who had a major problem with this. If your child recognizes the Breaking Bad toy, and what they did in the series, then where does the actual problem lie?
Personally, I think having the toys in a kids store is slightly in bad taste. There are adult geared stores, and comic stores, etc.. However, I’m not going to go nuts over it. They have the Terminator there, and other not so savory characters for sale. Why not make a fuss about them, but attack Walter White?
Things that make you go Hmm…
So after being bullied by this parent, and the others who apparently don’t know how to properly rear their kids, Toys R Us folded and pulled the Breaking Bad action figures. You would think that these people have something better to do, but no, there are people out there that always need a crusade to undertake. They constantly need something to complain and whine about. If it’s not our guns, it’s praying over lunch, or apparently now,Toys R Us action figure selection. Notice, they take no issue with a kid who kills zombies in the most gruesome of ways. I’m talking about The Walking Dead figures! Selective targeting, I suppose; I wonder if she had a problem abusing meth?
Now on to those fools allowing the kids to curse. I have finally figured out why this videobugged me so much. You know, besides the part about little girls cursing, and being disgusting at the behest of their irresponsible parents. Have you ever heard the saying “two wrongs don’t make a right?” Well, that applies here. See, these film makers, as well as most of their feminist supporters on the forums, are hanging on to this point: “Is it worse that women are treated bad, or little girls are cursing?” Why are you mad that they are cursing, but support their being treated badly?
Well, personally, I don’t believe women should be treated badly. It makes no sense to me if you are paid less to do the same job, if true, that should be addressed. I think that rape is disgusting, and my views for the punishments a rapist should receive would probably make your hair stand on end. In fact, I bet you’d be the first to defend the criminal and call me a barbaric animal once you heard my brutal thoughts on this topic.
However, I digress; I love women. Women are our queens, starting from the first woman in my life, my mother. That being said, I don’t see how you can justify getting these little girls to curse and make such nasty comments to further your cause.
If I steal a car, I will probably be punished more severely than if I steal a soft drink at a pharmacy shop. However, I cannot then say, “Hey, people are stealing cars, what’s worse? Stealing a drink, or a car?” The fact that one is worse than the other, is not a defense, and doesn’t justify the wrong doing.
Making, or allowing these little girls to curse on film, for millions to see, is wrong and disgusting. You and all your supporters should be ashamed of yourselves. It is disgusting, and nothing you can say will change my opinion about that.
Flipping out over a stupid toy, that your kid SHOULD NOT even recognize is foolish. Get a grip and knock it off!
