He writes in the petition that the two Jurassic works “have inspired millions of children around the world—boys and girls alike—to be interested in dinosaurs, paleontology, and science. Just as many—if not more—of the biggest dinosaur enthusiasts are girls and women.”
It seems his efforts paid off: Reading the description now on Hasbro’s site, the dinosaurs have gone back to being females (bolding ours):
“Clever as ever, Jurassic World’s velociraptors are masterful hunters. And this awesome figure looks just like Velociraptor “Blue”! She’s ready to team up with her fellow Velociraptors (other figures sold separately) to hunt the ultimate predator! Her slashing claws and growling attack will destroy anything in her way. Let the hunt begin with your Velociraptor “Blue” figure!”
We reached out to Hasbro for comment on why the raptor toy was initially branded a male, and will update you if/when we hear back.
