I suppose it would be remiss of me not to point out how that whole ‘false equivalency’ argument people wheel out for comic books is exactly the same here.
Just like Batman/Superman et al are a male power fantasy, so is the beefcake wrestler. It’s not about sexual attraction, it’s about wanting to look like that. In this scenario, the oversexed women of comic books are also a male fantasy of perfect eye candy.
Dress-up dolls are designed as female fantasies (old-fashioned ones but still) They embody traditionally feminist ideals like being exquisitely made-up, dressing in haute coutre and mostly existing as runway models and stay at home mothers.
So if you were to buy a boy the female-empowerment fantasy then it would be promoting feminine values in him, not the male power fantasy.
So actually, using Tumblr feminists’ own arguments, yes, the ‘boy’ toy is perfect for developing traditional masculine values and the ‘girl’ toy would instead promote traditional feminine values.
Name one doll that’s a stay at home mum lol
