In Bainbridge Island, Washington, Karen Keller, who teaches kindergarten in a public elementary school, routinely withholds toys from and lies to members of her class. Well, specifically, the male members of her class. She will not allow them to play with Legos. "I always tell the boys, 'You're going to have a turn' — and I'm like, 'Yeah, when hell freezes over' in my head," she said. Keller said she as angry because, when left to their own choices, girls tend to play with dolls and crayons while boys go for the Legos. She says forcing both genders to make other choices will empower the girls.
Critics say the long-running satiric cartoon has created "a generation of boys" who are smug and disengaged.
