Sexist Lego Set

So I love legos. One time when I was shopping I found this:



Sorry that its upside down. Anyway, I find this set annoying! It is sending the classic message: The men save the helpess woman. UGH!!!!

  • UGH! I really don't like it when toy companies, and society, make it seem like women are weaker than men!
  • That’s annoying:/ but for this set personally I feel that since it is Batman it’s not that bad because it follows the story line of the movie. And yes superhero’s can be sexist but I don’t think it is as bad as just a LEGO set with no story
    • I see what you are saying, but personally I feel that even if it does follow a story-line, it could still be sexist.
      • Yeah but its Batman if it was superwomen then she would be saving someone as well (hopefully). It would be super sexist if it didn’t have a plot and it was just a man saving a women.
  • I personal interpret this as teamwork, but I see what you mean.
    • I guess I didn't really see it that way. Thanks!
    • ^^

  • Grr - why can't LEGO catch up to the non-sexist toy sets?
  • That's too bad!

Period Preparation

"I am afraid my period is coming soon. How can I be prepared for it? What happens if I get it on a hike or something?" - Moana "I am going on a trip and I am bringing some pads. What happens if I get my period, but don't have enough pads?" - Moana     Hi, Moana! Since your two questions are related, I’m going to try and respond to them both at once. Getting your period can be a stressful thing (especially if it’s your first time), but I promise it’s not as scary as the prospect can sometimes…

Conflicting Feelings About a Crush

"I have a crush on this one boy, let's say his name is I. D. He is funny, friendly, sarcastic, and slightly teasing (in a good way, he never says anything mean or hurtful). But I found out from my sister that he was teasing one of my sisters friends and he said something extremely awful. I don't know what he said, but whatever it was, it was enough to provoke a very strong response from my sisters friend who is extremely shy and calm. My feelings are a little tangled up and confused about him.…

Friend or "Friend"?

"If your closest friend is acting kind towards you but also acting kind to another “friend”, and you suspect that they are saying bad things about you to each other behind your back, what do you do?" - Emmanuelle   Hi Emmanuelle, It must be hard to think that your closest friend would do something like gossiping about you! I’m sorry to hear it. Without knowing all of the particulars of the situation, it’s hard for me to know exactly what the best thing to do would be. That said, I would…

Wishing for More Friends

“I feel like my best friends at school both have other friends that they talk to and I do not. It isn't that I think they like their other friends more than they like me or anything, but I wish that I had other friends too. I'm just not good at making friends with people, especially the people at my school since I've known them for years but we aren't really friends. I feel like I annoy people at my school. And I have friends outside of school but I don't see them as much. Anyways do you guys…
