Don’t all little girls dream of doing laundry for their menfolk? (contains *^*%&$& cursing)

Knowing how to tell when pasta is done is the first sign your boy is going gay.

I mean, jeez, people.

The playhouse — which can be filled with a sink, an oven, a laundry machine, a cradle — is aimed at little girls with the tag line, “Where dreams have room to grow.”

And it’s pink of course. Meaning, “Hey boys! You’ll never have to do any of this boring girl crap! Now go play with your violent robots or something!”

The deal is, there are plenty of playsets out there–like this one–that don’t gender-identify kitchens. It’s great for all kids to play at cooking, doing chores, and raising kids. Because unless you’re raising your little boy to be a sexist tool, he’s going to have to do some of those things to have a healthy relationship with his partner…or even just to be a clean, fed, well-dressed human being.

Dear Toy Industry: GIRLS ARE NOT SERVANTS-IN-TRAINING. SO SERIOUSLY, GO FUCK YOURSELF WITH A LARGE, SPLINTERY PINK BARBIE(tm) BROOM. THANK YOU.
