This petition is to change the way that McDonald's employees ask their customers what kind of a toy to put in a Happy Meal. Rather than drive-through workers asking if the toy is for a girl or a boy, employees should simply ask which toy the child would prefer.
For example, the employee may ask "Would your child prefer a doll or a truck?" rather than "Is your child a girl or a boy?" thus reducing gender stereotypes inflicted on children around the world.
We, the undersigned, call on McDonald's and the McDonald's CEO, Donald Thompson, to implement and enforce a rule that employees may not ask the gender of a customer or the customer's child when deciding whether to give a stereotypical "boy toy" or "girl toy" along with a meal.
The Stop Happy Meal Gender Stereotyping petition to McDonald's was written by Anonymous and is in the category Children's Rights at GoPetition.
