Barbie and Boys

Seriously Has anyone seen the new commercial with the Boy in it? Apparently Barbie is going Gender Neutral... I thought it was kinda cute. I will find the link for the commercial and post it, but I was wondering what everyone thought...

I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." —Professor Snape

it would be more gender neutral if they didnt make the boy out to be gay.

Yes, this is a Spin-off of the post deleted about the mom wanting to kill herself because her 10yr Boy wanted a barbie. Wait before she pisses herself she said she wanted to Die not that she wanted to kill herself.. she refused to acknowledge any mother who has a son who plays with dolls no matter the age of said boy. My 14yr still has tea parties, plays with my little pony and Barbie with his 7yr sister...

Not into all this gender neutral crap, honestly. If a boy wants to play with a Barbie, let him. Don't change Barbie, a doll that has been working perfectly for decades, so a small handful of interested boys will feel more comfortable with it.

I thought he was adorable and didn't feel he came across as gay or effeminate.
