Easy Bake Oven For Boys? [Candy Dish]

Some adorable and thoughtful teens are petitioning for Hasbro to make an Easy Bake Oven marketed to both genders. Cooking ain’t just for girls anymore, bitches! When 13-year-old McKenna’s 4-year-old bro asked for a dinosaur and an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas, but she knew his request was complicated because the toy is so heavily associated with girly-ness. She wrote in her petition:

“I believe your product, the Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, a favorite of mine as a young child, promotes gender roles in society. Your packaging for the product and it’s promotional materials advertise baking and cooking as a solely girls hobby. Also, its’ “girls” coloration of purple and pink make it seem as though cooking is “girly”, which it is not by any means. Please, Hasbro, I urge you to include males on your packaging, and feature your product in less gender specific colors, such as red, green, or blue. I thank you so much in advance for your understanding of my concerns, and please, help our youth understand that cooking and baking is for everyone, not a specific group of people.”
