On rare occasions, the internet gets it right!
A debate about kitchen toys for boys sparks an onslaught of heartwarming images of kids at play.
Recently, some holiday Scrooges took to the internet to share their loud and wrong feelings about why boys shouldn’t receive or play with kitchen toy sets after a photo of a young child in his state of the art, faux stainless steel kitchen went viral. While many people pointed out the homophobic element in the room, others rushed to point out the male dominated world of culinary arts and the ridiculousness in shaming a child for playing with kitchen toys.

The debate quickly spread across social media sites and many responded to the silly uproar by sharing photos and videos of their male children and family members playing happily with their kitchen sets. “My nephews stay whipping up some bomb imaginary meals at nanna’s— people put way too much pressure on kids!,” one Twitter user wrote.
