What the world really needs right now is genderless plastic bricks:
Yes, that is a real news story.
But before it was an actual thing in the real world now run by clowns, our friends at The Babylon Bee prophesied it back in May:
You really can't make this stuff up!
Here's what the Bee joked about:
"This represents a new era in inclusive building bricks!" said LEGO spokesperson Bjørn Irkestøm-Slater Walker. "Finally -- anyone can play with our LEGOs without being triggered by those horrid male and female parts that imply they're only supposed to fit in one direction. Every brick can stack on any other brick without anyone misgendering anything or making a brick feel bad because it only fits in one way."
"I mean, I guess they're pretty much just blocks now," he admitted. "But they're INCLUSIVE blocks!"
And here's what Lego is actually doing:
The world's largest toymaker has already stopped labeling its products as "for girls" or "for boys" and its website does not allow searches by gender, The Guardian noted.
Recent product lines have also "been specifically designed to appeal to boys and girls," the company's chief product and marketing officer, Julia Goldin, told the UK paper.
"We're testing everything on boys and girls, and including more female role models," said Goldin.
"Our job now is to encourage boys and girls who want to play with sets that may have traditionally been seen as ‘not for them,'" Goldin added.
"We're working hard to make Lego more inclusive," Goldin said.
It's the same thing!! How is this real???
Bee CEO Seth Dillon had this to say:
What a time to be alive!!
