Maybe I'm just alone in this... but I'm not comfortable buying my child a doll of a different race. We are white, I want to promote her having white children later in life. I have no issues with her having different races of friends, heck we invite all races/religions/and so on to our home with no issue. But I just cant see the point in buying a black barbie or an asian baby doll, or a hispanic looking doll. I simply buy her blonde hair dolls because she's a blonde and I want her to feel like her doll looks like her...

 

Am I weird for this?

what exactly is your problem with different dolls? you dont want her to have an interracial relationship? you really think buying only white dolls will prevent that?? Her being around different races, and her growing and finding out what she's attracted to will determine that . NOT mommy buying only white dolls .

If you're going to go anon to spout your racist crap just because you're in mc, try changing your font color so it's not obvious who you are.

My boys have a princess tiana doll and a Dora doll. They may be white but they have 2 black uncles and my oldest is 1/4 Mexican.

So giving her only white dolls will keep her from interracial marriage?

I had all colors of dolls growing up Nd *gasp* i married a white man.

Lol I kinda understand where you're coming from, but you're about to get slaughtered. That's something best kept to yourself.

You want to promote her to have white kids? As in you dont want her to marry a different race?
You dear, are whats wrong in the world today.
You have 0 say in who she will love.

You're the parent, you're going to buy whatever you want. I'm just hoping for the day you have little mixed grandkids.

My kids wont be raised to be ignorant.
