I'm signing because it's time to move on from gender classified roles in today's society. That change starts at childhood.

I'm signing because my daughter is a gender equality expert and has taught me that when gender division is reinforced, it sends messages about the potential and limitations of our boys and girls. Not right ... Not fair.

Gendering is pointless peer-pressuring to perpetuate artificial and limiting stereotypes. Be free of it all.

Asking "is the happy meal for a boy or a girl" is outdated and insulting. Toys are toys. Just ask which kind of you they want! The Barbie or the Hotwheels!

It is completely unnecessary to gender toys for small children

Toys are toys. Maybe stop giving crappy plastic toys all together and offer books, little games that families can play together or bring back the McDonald Land cookies as a substitution for toys.

A toy is a toy, they never had girl Legos when I was a kid. A toy is something for ANY child to play with. I watched many "boy" shows growing up because I liked them better. Let's stop labeling.

This is 2016. My daughter enjoys both Hello Kitty and Pokemon. She plays with Barbies and spy stuff. I appreciate the innovation of offering a choice of toys, but labeling them "boy" toys and "girl" toys is regressive and ignorant of child development. Just ask if they want a My Little Pony or a Lego toy.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Smarten up McDonalds.
Change this in ALL locations around the world, not just where gender "roles" are more relaxed.
This ALWAYS upset me as a child.
I'm 45 now.
You haven't evolved yet?
Now it embarrasses MY children.
It's totally humiliating for nothing.
Stop it already. It's 2016!
