I politely request for you to respect peoples' decision to hate Minidolls.
So, obviously, I've been looking at the comments sections of the various DC Super Hero Girls threads on the main site, and frankly, it's kind of depressing how quickly it devolved into something resembling a virtual lynch mob. Personally, I couldn't care less about the existence of minidolls, and do appreciate their upsides as opposed to the original minifigure design (more potential for detail, more human-looking, etc.), but at the same time hating their very existence is a perfectly justifiable point of view (I would say that liking them more than minifigues is justifiable as well, but frankly I don't actually sure if anyone here has that opinion). The same thing goes with including bright colors in "girl" sets and the existence of DC Super Hero Girls in general. Now, it's one thing to debate the merits of the minidoll over the minifigure (same goes with the inclusion of bright colors in "girl" sets, Lego's decision to make "girl" sets in the first place, etc.), but I've seen far too many pro-minidoll FOL's acting as if there is zero reason to dislike the concept, or even just its inclusion in the DC Super Hero Girls theme (I know I would've loved to see a minifigure Bumblebee). Basically, all I'm asking is for people to be civil to one another over their plastic miniature style preferences.
And speaking of being civil, can we please, PLEASE keep issues of sexism and political correctness out of most (if not all) Lego discussions on this site? I get that it's a hot-button issue, and I have some strong opinions on the matters myself, but the main reason I think most of us use this forum is for Lego-centric discussions. I already have websites on which I can argue about whether or not society is inherently anti-woman or whatever, I don't need another. I mean, I get there are some situations where it might be relevant, but I still don't really want to talk about such matters unless absolutely necessary, as they're riotous for ruining friendships.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
