    It is kind of insulting on how the male section for thirteen year old gifts holds actual useful and exciting gifts that stimulate the brain. The female section is fairly vapid with most of the gifts merely affecting physical appearance. The games suggested were “Just Dance” in the female list but games that are more fully enriched with action such as “Fallout and Halo” which I as a girl play myself along with a large portion of my friends play. Also the athletic section for female held yoga pants and a fitness tracker but the male list had a punching bag and things that actually help you work out. Another complaint is that there was no “scientist section” for girls. The chemistry set C3000 I received in second grade and completed it before I started my third grade year. So overall my complaint is that the female and male lists are vapid, stereotypical and seemingly just based off of assumptions.

    Overall a great list!! A couple items, like the “f#*k off socks” are not appropriate for a 13 year old, and should not be on this list.
