Kids toy Mr Potato Head gets new, gender-neutral name

Toymaker Hasbro has given a new gender-neutral name to its classic children’s toy Mr Potato. Now, it will be just called Potato after dropping the ’Mr’ title. Hasbro said Mr Potato Head needed a modern makeover. The toy’s new name will start appearing on boxes from 2022. The move triggered reactions on social media. Some welcomed the change while some called it dumb to gender-label a vegetable.

Honestly, this isn't news worthy. It's a plastic potato you add facial features and accessories onto.

Imagine having such a fragile ego and identity that a potato being a male and having a wife potato is enough to "erase you."

I still feel like this is not respecting Yams and Sweet Potatoes.

Who wants to take a bet on a massive scandal coming out agaist Hasbro soon? This seems like a perfect distraction from a real issue to me. A story like "Hasbro discovered using Cambodian child slaves to make toys" would never drum up as much social media buzz as "Hasbro panders to tiny minority with meaningless gesture"

Ok Hasbro. Lose the lipstick, the makeup, mustaches, etc. If your going gender neutral, don't stop know. No more accessories!

I thought gender was a social construct. So Mr Potato head can be whatever the child wants them to be, women can be Mr too! What a bunch of bigots!

If this is all it takes to keep the children from canceling important members of society then bravo, good move.

To all of you trying to cope with this "apocalypse" and "male genocide," just remember that this is capitalism. Hasbro is not a leftist business. This is what you wanted. The free market 🕶️

this is one of the most cringe worthy cultural-war bait I've ever seen. If you're legitimately angry at this you should probably turn off the computer. there are real problems out there
