Riley is angry. She’s six-years-old, and she’s noted the lack of Black Widow merchandise on the toy shelves. You can get Hulk, you can get Cap – but no Black Widow action figure. She thinks that’s bull, and I agree. It’s just ridiculous.
Keep in mind, this same girl has spoken about toy marketing and how dumb it is that all the aisles with toys for girls are pink. She’s already wise beyond her years – Joss Whedon himself has made a similar argument, commenting on lack of female superheroes in movies. I understand her outrage, and I think more us need to speak up just like she’s doing. Yep, I’ve been inspired by a six-year-old.
Watch and learn after the break.
