Gender Neutral Potato Head

Recommended Posts

I saw this story earlier about Mr. Potato Head going gender neutral. The thing that struck me is that companies don’t often kowtow to political trends unless there’s a profit motive.

And then it hit me. They are basically consolidating 2 separate products into one. Redesign the box with Mr. on one side and Mrs. on the other, all the same parts go in each box, and the stores can simply display the boxes however they see fit.

From a manufacturing and supply chain perspective, this will save them hundreds of thousands of dollars. I don’t usually applaud things done for the sake of political whims, but when you can manipulate those whims to make money, that’s using your potato head.

Insinuating that mrs. Obama is a man isn't exactly name-calling but... I know it's hard to keep up with.

Still making both Mr. & Mrs. Potatohead.  I think this is nonsense but in my list of outrage items it doesn’t crack the top 20.

 Just part of the bigger politically correct picture.  The entire gender neutral movement is insane.

If it was negative feedback I hope the makers of Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben and Land O Lakes get the same.

Does it really fuck with your life?  You seem to be the guy who is always looking for a battle but only like the superficial ones.

 I sincerely doubt that any of the topics we discuss on this board really fuck with anybody's lives one way or the other.

It's part of the war to undermine everything Real American. That is how it hurts everyone.

Agreed but wouldn’t this place be so much better if we truly discussed important topics from the political world.  You and I rarely agree but there are times you post things that get me thinking or seeing things from your perspective shift mine.

I’ll keep posting this but the petty squabbles Americans have distract us from the real issues and you and I aren’t winning because of it.
