Ikea assembly manuals: It's a man's, man's, man's world

Shocking! Horrific! Outrageous! Ikea criticized for male-only furniture assembly guides. That's right, those wordless instruction manuals that come with your Malm bed or Nygård dining table only contain male figures and "cartoon figures whose sex is unclear" according to the Norwegian prime minister.

How could you, Ikea? I thought you stood for values. Why can't your views on gender equity be as tasty as your meatballs? Won't you give female cartoon figures and clip art characters the same opportunities that you give their male counterparts? Shame on you, IKea.
