Reflection #2

Gender roles have been talked about in this class pretty frequently and it is definitely an important subject to talk about. Just recently i came across a video using the Beastie Boy's song "Girls" in parody form to speak against how all girl's toys are pink and girly. Why are there no variation of girl's toys and products for people that may not fit that mold? Companies are trying to shape the youth around previous norms set into place, but when will the mold be broken? And by who? If people keep buying little pink products like barbies and such why would the companies have to change their product? I think this company's motives are good but the fact that they countersued the Beastie Boy's when they were the ones who used their song without permission is ridiculous to me.
