Because sexualizing children is what I want in my children’s toys.
Also, I have to wonder if LEGO is going to redesign how all the pieces fit together in honor of LGBTQ people. Do the male ends still go into the female ends or have they figured out a new way to do this? I’m betting they haven’t.
In the lead-up to Pride month, Lego has released its first set which celebrates the LGBTIQIA+ community.
Called “Everyone is Awesome,” after the “Everything is Awesome” song from the Lego movies, the new model features 11 buildable, colorful figures, inspired by the rainbow flag.
Each monochromatic person in the set has a different hairstyle and color associated with them. The designers intentionally did not assign a gender to the figures.
“I wanted to create a model that symbolises [sic] inclusivity and celebrates everyone, no matter how they identify or who they love,” set designer and design vice president Matthew Ashton, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, said in a press release. “Everyone is unique, and with a little more love, acceptance and understanding in the world, we can all feel more free to be our true AWESOME selves!”
Lincoln logs are still straight. (At least last I heard.)
