Support or ploy?
« on: Nov 30, 2017, 08:54:37 PM »

Two days ago, The Indpendent praised Mattel for sharing Barbie wearing a love wins tee. We think it's great to see companies supporting lgbt rights.
Although more support from companies is amazing, others we've spoken to think it's marketing ploy. What does everyone else think about it?

I'm waiting for my dinner to cook and hungry, and so skim read this and thought it said Barbie was wearing a love wins tie, which would have been nice.

I misread it as she was wearing a bow tie.

It would be more like progress if Barbie put on three stone and got a Hoxton fin.

Or at least a pair of sensible shoes.
