This Teenage Girl May Be The Most Whiny Liberal In America

Americans dedicated to redefining traditional gender roles have found another common enemy. While McDonald’s has been vilified by leftist groups in the past, primarily for its fatty menu items and embrace of capitalism, the latest attack is based on a seemingly innocuous issue: the Happy Meal toy.

A beloved treat for generations of kids, the fast food giant has traditionally offered two distinct toys during each promotion. One was meant to appeal to boys, while the other was geared toward girls.

Such gender stereotyping, however, is considered brutish and unacceptable by today’s leftist activists. Amazingly, it is not only adults who are outraged by the idea that girls are more inclined to play with dolls while boys enjoy racecars.

As a high school student pointed out in a recent editorial posted on the far-left Slate.com, she was upset by the practice as far back as the age of 11. At that time, Antonia Ayres-Brown wrote, she sent a letter to the chain’s CEO.

“I expressed my frustration that McDonald’s always asked if my family preferred a ‘girl toy’ or a ‘boy toy’ when we ordered a Happy Meal at the drive-through,” she wrote.

Unsatisfied with the response she received, Ayres-Brown detailed an in-depth study and, in typical activist fashion, filed a formal complaint.

“Ultimately,” she wrote, “we brought a complaint to the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities against McDonald’s for discriminating on the basis of sex.”

That effort was immediately shot down, she recalled, as her concerns were labeled “absurd” and only intended for “titillation [sic] and sociological experimentation.”

She refused to give up, however, and enlisted a number of other kids to find out whether the practice of giving out gender-appropriate toys was widespread throughout the corporation.

“We found that 92.9 percent of the time, the store, without asking, simply gave each child the toy that McDonald’s had designated for that child’s gender,” she wrote. Additionally, some of the children were allegedly told they could not return the toy for an alternate.

The article ended with what Ayres-Brown considered a victory for gender revisionists. She reportedly received another letter from McDonald’s, explaining the company has “recently reexamined our internal guidelines” and will no longer distribute toys based on the sex of the adolescent customer.

“Even more heartening,” she wrote, “DoSomething.org just posted a photo of a manager’s notice on the wall of an actual McDonald’s store instructing employees: ‘When a customer orders a happy meal you must ask ‘will that be a My Little Pony toy? Or a Skylanders toy?’. We will no longer refer to them as ‘boy or girl toys.’”

While it is true a small minority of kids are drawn – whether by their own interest or the pressure of their parents – to play with toys envisioned for the opposite gender, activists are dedicated to changing the entire culture as a result instead of dealing with these outlying examples on an individual basis.

  1. If this is the worse thing this girl has to complain about she needs to get a job and get on with her life, if she wants to complain about something how about the way the gov. is destroying our country. That should take up a lot of her spare time.

  2. These leftist dimwits are starting out younger and younger, what she needs to worry about if America will still be America by the time Obozo the clown gets through with his term and if we are lucky that he will leave. Don't trust him to be graceful and leave when his term is up, now that is what this dimwit girl should worry about, her Country

    First thing I thought of is her last name Ayers-Goofy.Must be some relation to Bill only she isn't out to kill people only cause trouble and to worry about a toy when this country is being taken over by a leftist commie liberal sand monkey.
