It should be gender neutral. Heck, if Hasbro changed the colors and used Bobby Flay as a sales flack, they might sell more of them.
I applaud the sales of AR-15 style firearms in pink, so they appeal to girls, why wouldn't I be happy if Hasbro made an Easy-bake in OD green? I might buy one for the grandsons.
Dont know about anyone else, but this kind of stuff
is what sets my teeth on edge in regards to the phrase gender neutral nowadays, since the phrase is deliberately associated with same. If that had been left out of the notion of marketing the Easy-Bake Oven to boys, then I doubt I would have had reacted negatively . . .
