WATCH THE IDIOCY: BBC Reverses Boy And Girl’s Names And Clothes To Test Adults For ‘Gender-Stereotyping’

The BBC , in an attempt to take gender confusion to the next level, issued a video with the hashtag #NoMore Boys&Girls, in which a little girl toddler was dressed in boy’s clothes and given a boy’s name, while a little boy toddler was clothed in a dress and given a girl’s name. The tweet accompanying the video read, “Are you sure you don’t gender stereotype children?”

In the video, the children play with adult volunteers in an experiment to see if the volunteers display “gender-stereotyping.”

The video begins with this caption, as the children are dressed in clothes befitting the opposite sex:

The experiment: Take some boys and girls and swap their clothes. Marnie becomes Oliver. Edward becomes Sophie. Give them some toys and a volunteer adult to play with and see what happens.

We see a woman carrying “Sophie” and placing him down on the floor, then saying, ”Would you like a dolly? There’s a good girl. You’re a good little girl, aren’t you, Sophie.” The woman sits on the floor with the boy, holds up a toy baby, then instructs, “Look, what does this say? Sweet dreams, sweet dreams.”

The screen reads, “The adult offers ‘Sophie’ a doll and soft toys … not the toys that teach spatial awareness or physical confidence.” The woman says, “I think she liked that pink dolly the best.”

A man confronts the woman and informs her, “If I were to tell you actually that Sophie is Edward, does that change anything?” The woman responds, “I maybe thought, ‘This is a little girl, so I have to give her little girl things.’”

Next we see a man offering “Sophie” a soft doll. The screen reads, “Men hugely dominate careers prizing maths, spatial awareness and physical confidence. Are boys born ‘better’ at these? Is it nature or is it nurture?”

Then the situation is reversed, as ”Oliver” is given a robot to play with as she plays with a woman on the floor. The man who spoke to the first woman says to the woman on the floor, “You’ve gone for, you could say, boy toys.” She responds, “Possibly my subconscious was automatically playing tricks on me.” When she is informed that “Oliver” is actually a girl, the woman says, “I suppose it’s because of the stereotype,” prompting the man to gleefully respond, “And then that changed your behavior towards the child.” The woman laments, “I can’t lie. It did.”

The volunteers wind up chastising themselves for not being more “open-minded.”
