Proud to be, what?

I intended to write another post, but I stumbled upon this one here, and could not resist…

There’s this on line shop that sells “Memorable Gifts”. Among their product list, there’s a doll series called precious moments (with a f****ng trademark) and one of the items this line has is the Millitary Doll.


The product description is as follows:

Proud To Be An American From Precious Moments™

Representing the men and women who proudly serve in our military forces, these classically-styled vinyl dolls wear a camo uniform, boots, and carry a miniature U.S. flag.

State boy or girl.

Now, don’t get me wrong, despite what I personally might believe, I will not accuse anyone who is proud to be a soldier, or an American, or whatever. But representing that pride with an image of a child, I think it’s absolutelly horrible. Why on Earth would we want our children to wear “camo” ? Being prepared to fight for what you believe and actually looking forward to it, are two different things, but when you project that to the children, you commit a crime.

    I guess that if you have a relative who serves the army, and your family is bursting with pride about it, it makes sense to want to play with these dolls. But, I don’t know what are you supposed to play, something like killing each other? Whatever happend to fairies, princess and noble knights or pirates?

    Killing is fine as long as it is the bad guys and not our children right? I really don’t mind seeing children play war games, we used to do it, hell all children play such sort of games. But this is different.
