Why do toys need to be labeled as "boy toys" or "girls toys"?  Why must "girl toys" be pink, purple and sparkly?  And why do all the characters for "girl toys" end up being unrealistically skinny and shapely and look like valley girls?

gah!  "Girly LEGOs" are joining the list of banned toys for our future children.
