Why are people freaking out over this adorable little doll?

PENIS. That's why.
The You & Me doll is anatomically correct, and it's a male doll, so... yeah. Some people are not happy.
One commenter on the Toys 'R Us site says, "This is highly not recommended for any kid!"
On the flipside, one blogger had this to say about the controversy:
Really? It's a penis, it's a vulva — one on a baby is not going to kill you and it's definitely not going to turn your child into a pervert. Some people have them, others have something else. Hiding these body parts away is an element of a larger issue — that we are ashamed of our bodies, and that even babies are shameful.
What say you?
What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
