There seems to be heated controversy over a photo on the Internet (surprise, surprise): One woman in Argentina, after discovering that a toy doll appeared to have an appendage similar to a penis between her legs, posted a photo of it on her Facebook and the photo went viral.

The manufacturers of the fairy doll, located in China and sold by Argentine company “Once,” may not have even been aiming to make the toy “transgender.” Yes, it appears that the little appendage can move up and down as though to hide, then reappear, allowing the owner to choose whether the doll is a girl or a boy. But as Jean Ann Esselink points out on the New Civil Rights Movement, the piece of plastic between the doll’s legs might simply be a small “protuberance” that allowed the part to be pulled from the mold during the manufacturing process: “I think what we are actually looking at is not so much a penis, as that manufacturing aid,” she writes.

It’s also hard to tell, based on the video posted by the Daily Mail, whether the small piece between the doll’s legs is real or fake. But perhaps the important thing to take away from all this is why there would be such an outrage over the “world’s first transgender doll.” Parents around the world are shocked that such a thing exists — God forbid!

“It’s very difficult to give an opinion because I’m conscious that it’s a taboo subject in society… but yes, obviously, it’s shocking,” one civilian in Argentina told the Daily Mail in the video.

But truly, a transgender doll existing might have fostered greater acceptance among people at a younger age, and made the lives of many transgender people easier from the get-go. Besides, progressive dolls have been popping up lately to help fight stereotypes and change girls’ outlooks on themselves and their own bodies (such as the “normal-sized” Barbie doll). So what’s the big deal if transgender dolls become a thing?

And it’s not the children who are making the big deal out of it: it’s the parents. “It doesn’t matter to a child whether their toy has male genitalia or not,” child psychologist Ricardo Rodulfo told the Daily Mail. “The idea causes more disturbance among adults.”
