wow I didn’t know fuckin chocolate eggs were gendered
OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.
I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.
So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who’s probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4. The mom asks what they want, the little girl points at the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if she wanted the white or the pink egg. She said pink. The little boy pointed to the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if he wanted the white or the pink egg. He said pink. HOLY SHIT IT WAS LIKE I OPENED THE GATES OF HELL. The mom absolutely FLIPPED and was like “YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE PINK EGG IT’S ONLY FOR GIRLS. YOU CAN GET THE WHITE ONE OR NOTHING AT ALL”. The little boy looked at his mom and said “But I want the same as ______ (whatever the sister’s name was)”. The mom completely ignored him and turned to me and gave me a death glare. “He can have the white egg.”
I had to give a little boy a white egg when he wanted the pink so that he could be the same as his big sister and he started crying. The mom just reiterated that the pink egg was for girls and told him that boys don’t cry.
And this is why we shouldn’t gender fucking chocolate eggs.
Ok. Excuse me, but that is some fucked up shit! Not that kinder eggs are “gendered”, though that is kinda strange. Tje mothers reaction!! Jesus! Srsly my nephew is 3 and he loooves pink (as he will readily tell you) and princesses and whatnot. He has an older brother, and he has seen many children’s movies and his favourites are Tangled, Brave og Timmy Time!
Once we were on vacation me, my mother and him. We sais we’d buy a souvenir for his older brother and he declared that he’d get something to and that it was going to be pink.
For his 3d birthday he said very clearly that he wanted pink wrapping paper and pink cake.
He does love cars, animals and he is a little brat sometimes. A completely ordinary little boy who just happenes to like pink and princesses.
And thw boy in the story just wanted the same as his sister, which is obviously very typical.
Urgh I’m too sleepy for this.
And anyways, back in the day pink was thw colour for boys!
