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.
