O irmão mais novo de McKenna Pope adorava cozinhar, mas ficava constrangido com a ideia de usar um Forno Easy-Bake – porque era um brinquedo para meninas. Por isso é que, com 13 anos, Pope criou uma petição "online" dirigida à fábrica de brinquedos norte-americana Hasbro, a pedir para mudarem o esquema de cores cor de rosa e violeta do brinquedo, e incluírem meninos nos seus anúncios televisivos. Numa apresentação encorajadora, McKenna Pope defende brinquedos neutros e faz um apelo a incitar à ação todas as crianças que se sentem impotentes.
