'Have the PC police gone too far?'

Fox and Friends anchors Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy were left confused by news that the retail giant Target would be introducing gender neutral labels for its toys.

The decision to remove gender specific labels in stores across the US came after thousands of people on social media asked for them to be removed. But despite the change coming after popular request, the hosts struggled to comprehend a world without clearly defined ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ labels on toys.

“They’re going gender neutral, whatever that is,” explained Doocy, who then asked: “Have the PC police gone too far?”

“But who are we helping?" asked Kilmeade."The nine people who are upset by this? If you go buy a gift for a boy who is nine or six or a girl who is nine or six, you want to be able to go to that section and pick out a toy they might want.

“Now you have to sit there and look at a blended area and wonder, ‘Is this for a boy or a girl. There’s going to be some unhappy boys and unhappy girls now.”
