Many online are questioning why a transgender doll, complete with male genitals and pigtails, is being pushed on children.
The doll was reportedly found at a Russian toy shop called Planeta Igrushek (Planet of Toys) in the town of Novosibirsk, according to DailyStar.co.uk.
On Wednesday, photos of the blonde doll with a penis and testicles under its dress began circulating on social media, where many asked whether it was age-appropriate, or really necessary at all.

One Russian social media user reportedly asked, “Is it ok to produce toys like that for children?”
“All they have to do is buy a medical tool kit and the kid can learn how to amputate,” another user reportedly joked.
Others asked whether the male sex organ could possibly be a manufacturer’s defect: “Have you considered that it could simply be a manufacturing defect? Or they accidentally put a female head on a male body?”
“What the F? Since when do dolls have ‘genitals’ at all? Now a Tgirl doll? We are spinning off quite fast into insanity,” said a US Twitter user.
What the F? Since when do dolls have “genitals” at all? Now a Tgirl doll? We are spinning off quite fast into insanity. This whole LGBTQwxyz wasn’t even a thing 10 years ago. NOW, it’s everywhere. But still people refuse to see the hidden hand at work. https://t.co/40E7V5vQFL

500 years from now a plucky anthropologist will extricate the charred remains of this doll from the sulphur and say, oh that explains it!
