The Swedes have chosen to enforce androgyny, as they have chosen to decline in their capacity to act as a nation and a people. It's simply another aspect of their decline.
Legos are made in Denmark, right? Not Sweden? I always thought that they were the best gender neutral toy, in a good way. Boys and girls both like them, they can play with them together at family gatherings and all.
I was a girly-girl as a kid, and played with dolls-baby dolls, pretty dolls, Barbies, Dawn dolls. The only boy I knew then who played with dolls is gay, now. Just saying.
Not counting GI Joe, which isn't really a doll. My uncle who is 7 years older than me had a collection of GI Joes (60s models) and all the assorted equipment-stuff that the Toy Hunter would love. His GI Joes would take my Barbies for rides in Joe's jeep, but that's mainly because he has always been a very good uncle.
played and I jumped up and pulled my fiancee off the computer from doing homework and danced in her room with her
I don't know if the US is in a position to criticize Sweden on the direction of their culture. Just sayin'
I was just commenting on the one guy I knew who played with dolls. Where I grew up, we had a pretty serious code about that kind of thing, at least as it applied to boys playing with girls' toys. It didn't necessarily apply to tomboys like my sister, who played sports, didn't like dolls and beat up boys who pissed her off. The boys she beat up were considered sissies for a while afterward. They usually had to regain their masculinity in Little League.
