Gender stuff

So I was walking in Wal-Mart the other day (I live in a rather progressive state) and stopped by the toy section to see if there was something small I could bring home as a surprise for my oldest. I was really surprised to find they had their signage as "Boys" and "All Kids", that's it.

I don't usually get really irked by this stuff, but this particular instance really bothered me. I don't really understand why they needed a label at all other than "Kids" or "Toys". I enjoyed LEGOs as a girl and I liked GI Joe and so my inner-kid was really perturbed. Also, I have two boys and I've always treated toys as toys and not made a big deal out of any of it.

I took a photo on my phone of the signage but I'm not sure what I should do with it. Should I call the individual store? Should I try to complain to corporate? With Wal-Mart's track record, I'm a bit pessimistic as to their response though I assume if this is happening in my store, it's happening in other stores. Or should I just ignore it and let it go?
