With a stetson on my head, a 6-shooter in its holster and a winchester over my shoulder, a Young Slave made sure I had a packet of sweet cigarettes in my pocket before a day out playing with friends.
Old Slave, Old Slave! Such a misbehaviour! A stetson (cultural appropriation), sweet cigarettes (promoting the unhealthy habit of smoking), going to play cowboy with your friends (confirmation of male superiority), with a toy six-shooter and winchester (confirmation of white superiority)!:confused:

No wonder you ended up on a place like CruxForums!:D

Concerning your claims for political correctness, I think, you are much too demanding and too much impressed by sheer appearances.
You should never try to separate the historic circumstances from the individual behaviour of the persons.
When I once was a sheriff in the Wild West, ...

0001106.jpg ... I only fought against evil WHITE persons.
I even had some female Indians (those with pretty feathers in the hair) as my closest friends and if I had not had a winchester and two (!) six-shooters in my gunfight at the O.K. Corral, I would not have been the sheriff of Tombstone for such a long time.
This historical photo shows me after one of the gunfights, which made me always very tired. It is very hard when you always have to fight against the evil in the world!

Too bad! Girls only spoiled the fun, since they wanted to play coock-and eat, and kept us from the real stuff! And my toy Tommy Gun was much more effective for slaughtering indians by numbers! A neccesary security precaution, because on our kid's teepee, an uncensored scene of torture of a white man by natives was depicted!:D

Mhm, OK, such a martial childhood with so many cruelties might explain some of your obsessions and why you are here,
:eek:
whereas my experiences with Indian girls might explain why I became such a "softie".
;)
If the obsessions are determined by one's childhood experience... I don't even want to ask my parents. :p

OK, malins, but we both are in Germany with a lot of "too fast old-growing" fans and collectors of "historical" toys and plays, so you might still find here toys and equipment which are already unknown in other states of the world or no more available there.
My own toys are "sleeping beauties" somewhere in cartons in the relatively good conditioned cellar (hopefully still in a good status), and waiting to wake up again.
I sold some of them years ago via eBay and was shocked how much money I got for them (480,- Euros for the very first German Playmobil Knights set in the original carton of 1974, only 5 knights, two horses and some accessoires!)
I always must have been a strange child because I still own a castle, a combined Western town (Timpo Toys & PlayBig) and "Fort Independence" in a very good condition with all the knights, cowboys and additional toys like cannons for the Fort and I lived decades in the illusion that this would be an eternally available toy every child would like to play with forever.
Only 25 years ago, I was convinced that I could still buy such toys for ever from "eternal" German mail order companies with big catalogues like "Quelle" (= the German "Sears, Roebuck & Co.") and "Neckermann", which were "immortal" companies because they survived world wars with 10.000's of employees ... but not the invention of the internet!
I really feel pity for the children who are today playing virtual games on their computers not knowing any more how beautiful it was to play with real figures & pieces in small, but real toys like these ones:

To collect such toys (usually men are doing this, so it seems men are only big boys) is like to keep the memories of your childhood alive, which usually was the best part of your life if you had good & caring parents, says this German article:

Yes, Rias, but in the "good old times" of my toys, the prices were much lower. I think, my castle cost 25,- Deutsche Mark (DM) in 1972, the LEGOredo Fort costs 90,- to 99,- Euros today and collectors are paying around 60,- to 100,- Euros today for "my" castle from PlayBig of 1972. It was somehow much cheaper to buy toys for children in the 1970's than today although the wages for the parents were also lower than today.
But something changed to the bad since those times, because in 1971 - for example and according to official statistics - a relatively simple West German skilled worker in a factory or something similar earned enough money to start a family, his wife could easily care for one child and stay at home.
Today, this is impossible although the wages are much higher, because all the prices of the average costs of living are much, much higher than the additional wages.

I almost suffocated reading this... I didn't know why at first, but realized that I was unconsciously holding my breath while expecting to see "meow", and it only came after 50 words :p

(No offense really... believe it or not, I was obsessed with cats when I was young, and I even talked a bit like you on a local chat server, assuming a feline identity :) )

Oh! That could be a wrong assumption, since we had no TV at home, so I was exposed to much less visual cruelty, than other children of my age!:)

Well, let's blame it why I am here to the comic strips then!;)

Wait a minute! I had these fantasies already before I could even read!:eek:
