In addition to that, she further expands on her idiocy with "The teacher says that Lego play helps with development acceleration and math skills, while dolls offer little challenge or opportunity for growth." I'm pretty sure that playing games with dolls improves ones imagination and empathy via placing oneself into other roles.

Legos will serve to help the young boys grow up to be young men who waste all their time playing Minecraft.

Dolls will serve to help the young girls grow up into young women who waste all their time playing The Sims.

In her own words she is deliberately hindering the boys' development in math skills.

This woman has no fucking business anywhere near education. The job of a teacher is to educate, not to deliberately sabotage the education of certain pupils because of their gender.

But little girls are awesome and little boys are the evil patriarchy, didn't you know that?

If you give children sticks and cans they become guns and bombs or magic wands and telephones. Children have good imaginations and can repurpose any toy to suit what they are playing. Dolls are no different.

When my own kids were young I bought them both a soft pretzel and we drove off in the car. Minutes later I looked in my rearview mirror to see that my son chewed his into a rudimentary gun shape and was shooting it out the car window and my daughter had chewed hers into a phone and was pretending to talk on it. At that point I realized there is no use fighting Mother Nature. Whatever will be, will be.
