Blogger: Yes, Target, I Do Want My Daughter To Conform To Her Gender

Target raised a few eyebrows when they decided they weren’t going to labels toys based on gender, because of the 0.001% of the people who claimed to be offended by it. Not everyone is thrilled about the decision, but Matt Walsh thinks there’s something more going on…

The Blaze: Yes, Target, I Do Want My Daughter To Conform To Her Gender

Yes, I want them to conform to who they are. “Conforming” isn’t some universal evil; it’s only evil if it conflicts with your principles and morals and common sense. But in order to identify this evil sort of conformity, you first have to have some idea of the good kind. You have to know what your morals are and who you are before you can know how to behave consistently with them. Don’t conform to whims and fads, but conform to what is real and truth. My daughter and my son’s genders are real and true.

And because gender is real and true, children are born with an innate desire to conform to this identity — their “gender roles” — which is part of the reason why boys and girls play with different toys, and thus why the toys were separated until the radical gender theorists decided to make an issue out of it. I know everyone can throw out their anecdotes here. I’m sure I’ll be told by an open-minded metropolitan mom that her 9-year-old son likes to dress up in princess outfits and have tea parties at the park, and that proves gender is neutral or whatever. But this is the exception, not the rule, and because I’m a terribly offensive person, I would even dare say her son should be guided away from that behavior. I’m not saying we shouldn’t allow a girl to have superhero bed sheets or a boy to play with a plastic kitchenette, but there may come a point when a child’s “gender non-conforming” interests begin to reveal a serious confusion.
