Outrage as UK post office separates boys’ and girls’ birthday cards by colour

“LET toys be toys.” That’s the message of UK shopper Rhian Davies after spotting a birthday card display at a Manchester post office offering blue options for boys and pink for girls.

“Pity that the @PostOffice feel the need to have male and female cards. Can’t we just #lettoysbetoys?” she wrote on Twitter, alongside a photo of the divided display.

She also tagged Let Toys Be Toys — a campaign against toy and publishing industries “limiting children’s interests by promoting some toys and books as only suitable for girls, and others only for boys”.

A Post Office spokesman told Manchester Evening News the colour separation was about convenience, not gender.

“We try to make it as easy as possible for customers to select cards for a wide of range of occasions and in with other retailers, our display sections include signage as a guide to help customers do so,” he said.

Liberals do not allow common sense.

If the lefties get offended by blue and pink to indicate the boys and girls cards, they could just have two signs saying "boys cards" and "girls cards", but that would offend them too. Lefties are offended by the existence of boys and girls, they are offended by nature. That is insanity.
