I don’t understand how some people feel the need to control the lives of others. They think their opinion is so right that everyone must change to what they want and what they think is right. It gets old. I just wish those people would accept that there is such a thing as free will.
My rant comes to you in the form of some ‘lady’ (lady by the way is my PG way of saying bitch) that felt Toys ‘R’ Us should immediately stop the sale of Breaking Bad action figures. (http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/22/living/breaking-bad-toys-r-us/index.html) Her reasoning (toward the end of the article) is that kids emulate their action figures. Okay, here is the idiocy in that statement. Not taking into consideration that if you don’t want your kid to pretend to be a diabolical man that makes meth and calls himself Heisenberg just DON’T buy it, why in the hell would your child be watching Breaking Bad to begin with? What kind of messed up mother are you where you let your child watch a program about a meth dealer that steals and murders without remorse. If you do, you really need to evaluate your priorities.
So, considering she doesn’t let her kids watch the show (cause, you know, she’s a good mother and vigilant citizen) how would your child even know who Jesse and Walter White are?! Why would they emulate them in any fashion?! If that’s your reasoning, stop selling dolls that include: freddy, darth vader, darth maul, darth sidious, Kobra, Decepticons, or any other villain of any other children’s franchise, because they are just as bad. And one may argue that “those characters are fantasy,” well so is Breaking Bad.
And finally… A PETITION? This lady gets that Toys ‘R’ Us is a privately owned and operated company and not a government agency. So what, you found 9,000 other people with sticks up their ass that have nothing better to do during the day than to complain about pieces of plastic. I mean… do these dolls come with a sample of meth? Are they so advanced that the project the show continuously through projectors via the doll’s eyes?
Which brings me back to my intial point, why do people feel the need to control what is and isn’t available? Under no circumstance would a child know about Breaking Bad so fearing they would pretend to be meth dealers is preposterous. Just worry about you and your own family. Obviously this lady needs to get laid or something… Someone give her some meth.
