This blog is in response to a petition & spam campaign of a few feminists

Some radical feminist groups realized they can advance their own agenda by launching a "No pink aisle, bring back beautiful" social media campaign by claiming The LEGO Group offers no "gender equity" in the new theme "Friends" and its marketing. They created an online petition, then proceeded encouraging their followers to SPAM the LEGO Facebook page with one of TLG's own ads. Laced with false dramatic information, they convinced the petition site to include their "cause" in its membership mailing notice.
This blog sheds light on their omissions, skewed facts & images.

Huff & puff

    Another women's rights petitioner, Lyn Mikel Brown, used one of her many platforms to continue the campaign of: "No pink aisles, bring beautiful back," against the LEGO Group's new Friends theme.  Although I tried four times to post a counter-information comment -- alas, they wouldn't post it.
Does the uploader of the blog page on Huffington have control over which comments get posted?  Mine would have been the very first post, but after 4 tries, nothing.  Then I noticed a comment did go through -- so it is possible for just the right comment to get through.
    By highlighting the hashtag #LiberateLEGO, they are trying to re-ignite the campaign promoting a petition, spam, tweet, post on a site (then rinse & repeat as needed).  All the while, they systematically delete posts on their own groups' pages on Facebook which LEGO fans have provided by sharing non-photoshopped/product stock images of the new Friends sets.  Not publishing counter-argument comments is another tactic.  (Yes, people have sent us compositions of what they wrote as comments which were never published on their various articles.)
Some of the deleted comments also included links to information about some programs/activities in which LEGO and the LEGO fan community has included girls; several have provided research insight over the past years.
Link to the above article of Lyn's is here:

 Lyn & Megan are mad.

Now they have confused people even more -- into thinking Heartlake has a tanning salon.

  1. Y`know, I`m suddenly reminded of the saying "Your rights end where my feelings begin". And I think that really is spot-on for what the feminists are trying to camouflage as a fight for equality, or something like that.
