Years ago, Dr. Phil said something comparable.

Only 15 years ago Dr. Phil drew audience applause instructing parents to take dolls away from a young male child who adored them. The segment burned a hole in my brain because as a self-appointed arbiter of gender expectations, McGraw claimed to be a staunch advocate of responsible parenting: curb those tendencies quickly or your male child will become an adult you don't recognize and society will never accept. It's no stretch to say the giggly, woefully self-absorbed Spencer voiced the same concern, albeit glibly, capriciously. Why, *real* boys don't dance willingly, didn't you hear? Wink wink, ha ha ha!

The offense taken was swift and fully earned, and now some want to tone police those of us who were offended.

I won't accept it.
