I normally don’t talk about things like this, and I know this pretty much ruins any chance of American girl ever following, liking, or commenting on my posts but, this has been bothering me for a long time. I have always loved the brand @americangirlbrand , and probebly will forever. As a child I never really saw any representation of boys with dolls, I kind of just thought I was the only one. I understand that American girl dolls are marketed towards girls, and yes I am extremely happy and excited that they created boy dolls but there is no photos with little boys and their dolls in their catalogs, or website. I understand that it is a very controversial subject, especially for a brand like them, but they honestly don’t even acknowledge many male agigers or fans in general, and yes I do know there aren’t that many of us but they honestly never even repost our photos. Another thing that really upsets me and I was really sad about as a child is they literally plaster “girls” and “daughters” in every add and sentence, it doesn’t bother me that the name of the company is “ American Girl “ but it bothers me that they only use female pronouns. Yes I understand that to some people it may sound very stupid and extra that I am complaining about pronouns, but you don’t understand how male collectors, and especially young boys feel about this, as a child this honestly upset me and even scared me to even walk into an American girl store when I was eight. In no way am I trying to hurt the company or try and start ANY arguments, I honestly just want American girl to see this. I don’t care if they don’t like or comment on this, I just want them to see this and really think about this❤️.
