Why not make something new instead of changing the old?

Here come the "SJWs are ruining everything" comments :awkney:

It's not like anyone asked for this or was fighting for it, and it's almost certainly a corporate move to keep up an image of inclusivity and progressive identity politics. But still, it's not a bad thing, it's just a thing. And I guess it would promote gender diversity and acceptance among children who buy these toys so why not!

Well that’s......cute. Having different kinds of Potato Head characters, especially if the brand emphasizes that several are gender-neutral, is great!

 

But changing the whole brand name though? It’s such a legacy... I don’t think that was necessary. :shrug: It was simply based on a character. :bear:

Idk how I feel about it but I don't think about Mr Potato Head so I don't really care. It's not like anyone was pressuring them so they did it on their own accord and I appreciate that.

It's actually a bit different. There is still a Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, but they fall under a new "Potato Head" brand umbrella.

I used to interchange parts for my Mr and Mrs. Potato Head and ven used to combine them so this feels incredibly fitting and exciting! Children should feel as comfortable as possible when it comes to their toys and what they project onto them!

The art of failure is interpretant of what I meant to say

No one. Which is why they kept the Mr. and Mrs. and included others without any title to remove their gender. It was their own decision, not something people were fighting for, and it's a harmless one.

The majority of the world is not LGBT tho, deciding to change everything gender neutral is gonna ruin the cause & fight of the community because people will look at it as a joke because of marketing things like this. But thats just my 2 cents

They just want some clout on the back of the LGBT community to act fake "woke" this is like greenwashing,except in my opinion they are damaging the cause more than anything
