Take a gander at my latest community window and try and figure out just how much of it is from these "girl" lines (hint, quite a lot of that is).
Meh...keep the politics and other drama out of it all. Seriously. Have fun.
It's not like there are any other ways to get female minifigs. A lot of the faces are gender neutral, they're just slight, higher quality variations on the classic smiley. But male hair on. It's a guy. Put female hair on. It's a girl. I use that all the time. And we have Bricklink. And we have Ebay. Not to say that I don't want or think we need more female minifigs in new sets. But still, the article just seems like we've gotta blame Lego for all our problems when ultimately it's up to the parent to decide how the child plays, what the child plays with (which the parent has plenty of options to acquire these desperately wanted figs).
And shouldn't we be solving more important world problems than Lego gender ratios?
Anyway, How likely do you think that the Cuusoo set will be made? Do we know what other sets it'll go up against for review?
Who says I don't have fun? I want everyone to have just as much fun as I do if not more. I argue against exclusionary business practices because they reduce the fun.
