Mattel caves on Barbie website flap

CWA’s Bob Knight flapping his gums at Mattel for “creating gender confusion” on the Barbie web site obviously got the toy maker’s attention. It pacified the hysterical wingnut. (PageOneQ):

Under pressure initiated by a variety of conservative groups, the Barbie website has been amended to no longer include “I Don’t Know” as a choice in addition to “Girl” and “Boy.”

…Acknowledging that children are given a neutral or non-response option on all questions on their websites, Mattel spokeswoman Lauren Bruksh called such an option under gender, “just an innocent oversight.”
