In a set of tweets that have gone viral on social media, an account on Twitter has shared the thoughts that the “American Girl” dolls have on the Supreme Court.
Protests between abortion rights and anti-abortion activists broke out after a draft leak obtained by Politico showed that the Supreme Court wants to potentially overturn Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade was a court case in the 1970s that granted a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion across the United States.
A meme account with the username @klitklittredge shared a viral tweet thread that explains the “American Girl” opinions on the Supreme Court. The thread has over 18,000 likes.
Founded by Pleasant T. Rowland, American Girl dolls were created because she believed that dolls with different backstories could help influence young children. With the historical dolls from different time periods came inspirational books and movies. Other than the historical figures, they’ve added customizable dolls as well as more decades.
“The American Girl experience is more than just a collection of toys. It is a collection of magical moments filled with goodness—moments that will nourish a little girl’s spirit, send her imagination soaring, and make her dreams come true,” Rowland said.
Within the eight-tweet thread, the account expressed how the “American Girl” dolls would feel about the Supreme Court, established in 1789, starting off with Kaya.
“Kaya, the American Girl Doll representing 1764, does not know what the Supreme Court is,” the account wrote with a picture of the doll saying “What?”
“Josefina, an American Girl doll living in what we now call New Mexico during the time between Mexico declaring its independence from Spain and the Mexican American War, does not have an opinion on the U.S. Supreme Court,” another tweet read.
“Addy, the American Girl Doll representing 1864, agrees with the essence of a famous Frederick Douglass speech delivered before the American Anti-Slavery Society on its anniversary in 1857,” the thread continued.
“Kit, the American Girl Doll representing the Great Depression, noted FDR supporter, opposes the Four Horsemen of the Supreme Court,” read another tweet.
“Julie, our second-wave feminist icon, acknowledges the wins women’s rights saw in the Supreme Court during the early 1970’s, but continues to push for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment,” finished the thread.
“This is such an awesome thread,” one user replied.
“It’s just dawning on me that until college most of what I knew about US history came from the American Girl books,” said another.
“Each day Twitter has a winner. Today, you won,” a user tweeted.
