American Girls Response (to outraged parents)
email from American Girl, corporate office | October 26, 2005

Posted on 10/27/2005 4:19:00 PM PDT by ChocChipCookie

Dear Ms. M,

Thank you for your letter expressing your disappointment with American Girl's affiliation with Girls Inc. We apologize for the delayed response and appreciate the opportunity to reply to your concerns.

American Girl has always encouraged young girls to achieve their best. The "I CAN" program is one of the many philanthropic endeavors undertaken by our company. Our goal with "I CAN" is to help millions of girls realize that they are unique, talented, and full of amazing possibilities?while reinforcing the idea that helping others achieve is also an important part of life.

Donations raised through I CAN support three distinct programs offered by Girls Inc., our 2005 benefit partner. One builds skills in math and science (Operation SMART®), another develops leadership skills (Discovery Leadership®), and a third encourages athletic skills and a collaborative spirit (Sporting Chance®). All of these aims are appropriate to our 7- to 12-year-old audience and allow us to make a significant impact on numerous girls in high-risk, underserved areas.

We are profoundly disappointed that our purely altruistic efforts have been turned into a broader political statement on issues that we, as a corporation, have no position. As with all of the thousands of nonprofit organizations we support, our singular objective is to make a meaningful and positive difference in the lives of all young girls. This is, and will always be, our priority.

We hope this information helps provide a better understanding of the situation. Please be assured that we have noted your comments, and thank you again for sharing your concerns.

Sincerely,

American Girl® Customer Service Phone: 1-800-845-0005 or 608-831-5210 Fax: 608-828-4790 Available Monday - Sunday 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. Central Time

The original email that elicited this response is polite and quite apolitical. Here it is:

Original Message Follows: ------------------------ To Whom it May Concern,

I have always been impressed with the American Girl experience when I have visited Chicago, and have planned for years to purchase an American Girl doll for my daughter, when she is a little older (4 currently). I was surprised to see links to Girls, Inc. on your website today. I followed the link to this organization, and was shocked and dismayed that American Girl would be promoting this group to its target audience (I assume young girls, below about age 13 or so). The Girls, Inc. website included information about questioning sexual identity, drugs, teen pregnancy, teen sex, and much other information that I find completely inappropriate for a child or even a young girl. I applaud American Girl for it's mission to empower girls and help them reach their fullest potential, but I question whether an affiliation with this particular organization meets that end, or simply exposes young girls to information they are not equipped to handle at such a young age. I sincerely hope that American Girl reconsiders its association with Girls Inc. in light of these issues.

Thank you for your time.

Sherri M.

YOu wrote a great letter. I'm disappointed that American Girl doesn't see the error of their association with Girls, Inc. Perhaps they will reconsider after they've been hit by economic sanctions.

Impact? What kind of impact? Why don't they just give the "numerous girls" one of their high-dollar dolls? I've got four of them and for them to even think of associating themselves with this group I will never buy another But no, they want to actually assist this group into inserting themselves in young girls' lives. Wrong Wrong Wrong

In their "response," AG ignores how by promoting Girls Inc.--a highly politicized organization that openly advocates homosexuality, abortion, and premarital sex--they themselves are thus promoting those same immoral positions.

We got the AG catalog recently, but no purchases from us any more--not unless AG severs its ties with Girls Inc.

I hope that enough parents learn this that American Girl can be persuaded to go down the drain they prepare for our children.

Since I already refuse to touch Esprit because of their support for what I view as foul, I won't have much trouble here, either.

Great email that you wrote.

That is not true that they didn't mean for their "good works" to get political. Gee whiz. They didn't need to sexualize their audience at all. That is political all in itself.

They could have helped the "underserved" population of little girls by delivering free dolls and books to poor communities that showed advances (Girls' Clubs, Girl Scouts, etc.) in helping educate girls. Or even given free things to girls in foster care. Those donations would have been far more meaningful.

A friend of mine was able to speak with one of the upper level managers of American Girl on the phone and gave me a blow-by-blow account of that conversation.

He didn't directly answer her questions and flip flopped around. She asked him if American Girl supported young girls getting information that was pro-lesbian, pro-abortion, etc. He said no, but that Girls Inc. did. He said AG would not sell that type of material or have it as a resource, but, again, GirlsInc does. "The two organizations are separate entities."

I have to give my friend a lot of credit for being gutsy. She told him that birds of a feather flock together, and if AG wasn't going in the same direction as GirlsInc, they'd better separate themselves now. She went on to tell him that she believed there were many, many more parents with values like hers' than those of Girls Inc.

Well, this manager/exec or whatever he was, actually told my friend to write a paper letter to their corporate headquarters and that would generate more concern on the part of their home office. Their corporate address is:

American Girl
8400 Fairway Place
Middleton, WI 53562-0190

I wrote a similar letter, my main objection was linking little girls (their products are aimed mainly at girls 8 and up) with a website that even MENTIONS sex, contraception, "reproductive choice" to use their euphemism etc. through the AG site. I may just be missing it but it appears to me that the link to girlsinc.org has been removed, though the organization continues to be promoted. It's not much, but a small victory nonetheless.

BTW I wanted to cry when the huge beautiful catalog arrived in the mail the other day. I immediately hid it so my girls wouldn't see it-hope my willpower holds out(I should've trashed it).

Moral Absolutes Ping.

You may remember a couple of articles about the American Girl dolls and where its money goes. Here's a non-reponse response from the company. Apparently it doesn't bother them that their money promotes teen abortion, homosexual experimentation and similar other social ills.

Just you know!

Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.

Note that these organizations helping girls are always helping them with math, science, leadership skills, and so on but never promote being a good wife and mother. Hmmm. Are those vital roles out of fashion? If girls don't aspire to be good wives and mothers, what will happen to the country?

Someone posted here that Girls Inc is the former Girls Clubs of America. I think it's true because the Girls Inc. website says they were founded 140 years ago, and I doubt there was an entity known as Girls Incorporated back in the 1800's!

American Girl issues it new "Aborted Baby" doll, the perfect addition to any of its grotesquely over-priced doll collections.

This anatomically correct aborable piece of faux non-viable tissue shows how a baby looks after being treated at the abortion clinic butcher shops that the American Girl company supports.

Really. Wonder why they aren't partnering with Girls Scouts? Will they put the "service to God and country" bracelets on display next to the "it's all about me" bracelets?

God help us if being a "good wife and mother", or being a "good spouse and parent" are things one has to learn - like calculus, chemistry or accounting. If those are no longer innate in us, we're doomed as a species.

Actually they are *learned things" to a great degree.
And since most Democrat sons & daughters don't have even
two good role models at home, many of them have *no clue*
about what it means, and what are the responsabilities
of being a good spouse, parent, and married member of
a community. And yes...*that's why, Divorce is so
rampant, dissilusoment with marriage so great, and so
many, *more children grow to adults, without ever
learning to *be* adults, or how to have a caring and
nurturing relationship with a life partner, ort with
their own children...too busy being "friends" or
rivals, to do what needs to be done, until they
burn out, and don't care anymore at all...*further*
broken homes..*more* Dimocrat "Me-ism" defectives.

My 6 yo dd went through that catalog and circled everything she wanted. I'll have to hide it/toss it when she's not looking. What I'm finding out, is that AG is really no big deal to us. There are very nice dolls out there, lots of historical books for girls to choose from. We'll live.

Considering how many kids have one parent at home, one they rarely see, come home to an empty house, get shuttled between one home and the remarried other parent's, live with step parents, or a series of mom's boyfriends, and the like - I think some lessons in motherhood (and fatherhood) would be in order.

Add to that the fact that many families never or rarely sit down to eat dinner together! Being a good wife and mother (or husband and father) are learned; and if not learned at home, the ill lesson will be visited upon the next generation.

Additionally, feminism holds being a wife and mother in contempt, and push girls into non-traditional roles as much as possible, as though the world needs more female physicists and fewer female mothers. Or as though being a good wife and mother is not "fulfilling", whereas being a female CEO is.

Loving your children is automatic, or should be. But there is more to good parenting than that. Good parenting involves a lot of learned skills, as well as learned morals. Traditionally we have learned from our parents, other relatives, friends, etc. The good examples aren't in plentiful supply like they used to be.

I'm sorry I don't buy the excuses... my homelife was far FAR from ideal, but grew up as a far more responsible adult than kids I knew from the so-called "Christian" and "respectable" homes.

In general, there is a culture of materialism in this society, a sense of entitlement, a sense of never having to be uncomfortable, that people are infected with. And it isn't limited to Dems.

And it isn't because "Mothers are working". My mother worked , and so did both grandmothers. The first ME generation was raised by doting, stay-at-home moms in the 50s.

As long as our culture is dominated by consumerism, commercialism, a tidal wave of assault from marketing specialists, in all media, in schools, home, theaters, etc. we are going to be rolling in self-indulgence - and the overall message kids pick up is to demand, demand, demand!

Please do. As I have said before, this is a very big test of the strength of the pro-life movement in the market place. It has already gotten a great deal of publicity; and so, if we can win this one, companies will be reluctant to give money to the pro-aborts. If we lose, companies will ingnore us and fund the pro-deathers. Speak up and spread the message.

Also on the other side of the coin, we need to promote the idea of being a good husband and father in men too. I might be having a Michael Savage moment here but if we don't fight to preserve the moral foundations along with the basic traditional ways of life that has made this country great such as family values and so on, we do deserve to lose to whatever comes along. The first priority in anything is our survival, if we don't do that, we will lose anyhow. We will be ourbred by the Third World and the Islamo-Fascists while chasing the "bling" (goodies of a hedonistic lifestyle, a word from the hip-hop subculture) with unbridled greed. I remember Glenn Beck talked about this on his show a few times to where we are too busy being ultra-consumers as the expense of family and so on and I think this plays into all of this as well. I remember Beck said that on average, we were better off under the type of America we had under the 48 star flag and I have to agree with him.

Sure, I have nothing against anyone and everyone learning things like math and science and so on. One needs to know how to think logically as well as have basic job skills to fall back on, but it should be taught in tandem with family values and skills.

I could not agree with you more. Lots of money and what money can buy doesn't make any individuals happy and it doesn't make for happy family life. Solid marriages and family members truly caring about each other and spending time together is what makes people happy. (Leaving aside the transcendent...)

I don't know if you are old enough to remember billboards saying "Families who pray together stay together". I remember them.

Change the word "Girls, Inc." to "KKK inc.", and the fallaciousness of this argument becomes clear:

Donations raised through I CAN support three distinct programs offered by KKK Inc., our 2005 benefit partner. One builds skills in math and science (Operation SMART®), another develops leadership skills (Discovery Leadership®), and a third encourages athletic skills and a collaborative spirit (Sporting Chance®).

Feminism is more deeply evil than many people realize. They think it's about equal wages or something. Men and women have been paid equal wages if they do the same work for generations.

It's about lesbianism, man hating, abortion, free sex for younger and younger children/adolescents, the entire leftist agenda. It's like the evil twin of the homosexual agenda. In fact the primary feminists were mostly all socialists/communists and homosexual as well. Filled with hatred of men, and the natural order created by God, they have wrought great destruction.

Men and women are different, have different physical bodies and psychologies, and are created to complement one another. The souls are all equal, and if we see each other as eternal souls, belonging to God, then there is no "exploitation" - only cooperation.

I loathe feminism from the core of my being. I saw it in the beginning, and it is a lie that the womens' movement got "hijacked" by radical lebsians. It's been that way from teh start.
