McKenna Pope, a 13-year-old from Garfield, N.J., started a petition calling for gender-neutral Easy-Bake Ovens after she went to buy one for her 4-year-old-brother, Gavyn Boscio, and found it comes only in purple and pink. The eighth-grader’s petition had attracted about 40,000 signatures as of Tuesday on the website Change.org. (Associated Press)
