So, apparently, because some soccer mom in Florida threw a hissy fit, Toys 'R Us will no longer be selling "Breaking Bad" action figures.

And in this panic, Mrs. Susan Schrivjer also started a petition against the toys as well, which managed to gather over 9,000 more paranoid nitwits that think parenting amounts to teaching them how to shit in a bowl, and then letting society handle the rest.  I have only a few choice words for this flaky Floridian:

Honey, there are aisles apart from the children’s toys that are specifically for collectable figures for teens and adults.  If you’re in a store with your child, your child should be with you at all times, and you are perfectly capable of not entering that aisle.

Even if you were to go down that aisle, your child is not going to recognize the characters, let alone is he going to say “MOMMY, MOMMY, I WANT THE BALD GUY WITH THE PLEATED SLACKS!”.  No.  Chances are, he’s going to want a Ninja Turtle, Iron Man, or any other character from something he’s actually seen.

"Kids mimic their action figures, if you will.  Do you want your child in an orange jumpsuit?"

Lady, please.  If your kid is more influenced by an action figure than your parenting, then you are one hell of a lousy parent.  It’s not the responsibility of stores to only carry product that you deem “acceptable” simply because you can’t be bothered to teach the little snot sack the difference between right and wrong. 

The rest of the world does not revolve around your goddamn kids.  And all this overprotective sheltering is doing is creating children with a faulty moral compass, and zero grasp on reality.
