tumblr blog from marzgurl about gender inequality in NERF. Actually I was directed there by the writer herself who promoted her argument on the NERF facebook page. Rather than being that increasingly stale argument about how girls don't need a new line and pink is a sexist color, this blog complains that Rebelle is a segregated line from everything else NERF and that the people marketing the product are to blame. People really should stop throwing words like equality around. Well, it worked. I linked to her blog too . . .
The same goes for decisions on sales for entire brands within a store like on NERF products. Unless it's a manufacturer's coupon, the store is making the rules. Why would you blame NERF for TRU not honoring their own sale on NERF for Rebelle items? TRU has been gouging NERF fans on prices and sales for good long time. Marzgurl says she has been a NERF collector in recent years. Maybe she's just not been in TRU very often?
Ultimately, most people, including NERF marketing folks, agree that all of these products are for anyone that wants to use them. There is no different viewpoint on equality. NERF puts it well in response to a post about the Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow.
