I have NO idea. I'm just glad the people in my life don't think that way.

i'm sure that every woman that you know has never felt any embarrassment as an adult when it comes to her period. but how would you know that exactly?

i'm not speaking for all women, only myself. and i'm not talking about being embarrassed because i am a woman and had to have a period every month. not saying i just walked around at 35 years old embarrassed about it. but there have been times in my life, especially when i was younger, an embarrassing situation regarding that time of the month. i'm not going to go back in time and try to dig up specific incidences because it really doesn't matter. but why in the world would you or anyone else try to make me feel bad for the fact that i have in the past felt some embarrassment? good for you and "the people in your life" that you have never felt any embarrassment.

So are they making tiny tiny boxes of tiny tiny tampons to insert in the dolls tiny tiny jay jay and does she come with a heating pad and fake midol?
Does she talk, or yell then burst into tears. Is her name Chucky?

I dont get why anyone would find in fun to play with a doll like that, but whatever floats ya. I had boys. When one was 2 he used to play with my old naked Chrissy doll and they had GI Joe, but I wouldn't buy my kid a doll that peed, pooped, puked or bleed, gave birth or even cried for that matter.

Do they not have sex ed in schools anymore. In like 5th grade we had a people come to the school and show films on menstruation, passed around products and all that as well as presentations of appropriate level sex ed and related sexually transmitted diseases. That was in the 70's.

Are they coming out with a PMS doll too? It can scream to the kid, "If you don't know what you did I'm not telling you!"

The world would be a much better place if people were able to handle the concept of teaching children basic hygiene. Or at least able to handle that others may wish to do so.





And the usual "Well, we didn't do it that way in yesteryear so why the heck should we do it that way today?" line of thinking makes its usual appearance. We also didn't have widely-available disposable pads in centuries gone by - do you thus object to those as well?

The endless litany of uptight and childish reactions to acclimatizing children to basic bodily functions in a healthy manner is truly depressing.
I agree 100%

I have no problem with teaching kids about basic body functions, I'm the aunt that buys books like everyone poops and the holes in your nose. I just don't get why anyone would want a doll like that and feel there are better was of introducing young girls to their impending body functions.

How about dolls that grow pubic, facial and pit hair, get zits and body odor?

The most festive looking Kotexes I ever saw. Anybody up for designing "Holiday Kotex?" Ya know, witches on brooms for Hallowe'en; turkeys for Thanksgiving; Santa's reindeer for the Christmas season; the possibilities are endless.

It should come with a hot water bottle to put on her little tummy to relieve those awful cramps, and an excuse letter for the teacher after a day or two home from school. Then I'd call it realistic.

I think that is the job of a child's parents. We don't need toy makers doing the job a human parent is supposed to be doing. What's depressing to me is people that depend on the world to teach their children what should be taught at home. And you call this type of thinking childish reactions? damn.
No wonder this country is so screwed up.

Yes, let us all call upon the toy makers to teach our children the facts of life. As parents, we take the responsibility of teaching our children and so should other parents.
