Ditch the doll? Lawmaker targets Barbie - TODAY Fashion & Beauty- msnbc.com
Not that I'm into Barbie but didn't Barbie just re-do their whole line to be abit more realistic? This is probably some guy who either has a kid that is butt-ugly, or was a collector of the Bratz doll and wants revenge
OK. So where was this dickhead when Bratz dolls (not to mention the vapid movie that went with them) were teaching young girls how to dress like sluts?
This just in...
A Lawmaker who gets paid to sit on his butt all day is proving to his voters that he is trying to do something while in office.
Sure, Barbie is considered beautiful and focuses a lot on fashion, but if I recall correctly they've also done stuff like Veterinarian Barbie (I owned one!), Doctor Barbie, and teacher Barbie. What're they expecting -- NASA Engineer Homely Barbie, now with 10 Cat Accessories?
I'm completely ignoring "Math is hard" Barbie.
Barbie is wrongfully teaching young girls that it's beautiful to be pecked to death by birds
You'd better believe that I'll be taking this up with my congressman.
I think The Onion says it best...
"emphasises beauty to girls"?
Ok, lets introduce Ugly Cow Barbie, with extra teeth coming from her chin.
Or alternatively, if we live in the real world, we could do nothing because there is no problem outside of the views a small number of people who should be busy doing something worthwhile instead of just trying to get their name in lights.
"Hmmm, how can I get even HIGHER profile again this year?"
What about Cute In a Weird Way Barbie?
No, no, no! It's too nice looking. Stick an extra eye on there and you might have something that's okay for release. Remember, the last thing we want is for kids to feel happy, and they need to embrace the other qualities of the piece of plastic. Such as... erm...
please try to finish my sentence, I'm stuck...
I'd rather see a lawmaker take up the charge against unrealistic photoshop jobs in magazines. LET'S SEE THE HAGS AND UGGERS FOR WHO THEY REALLY ARE!
Leave Barbie alone! *cry*
Nah really tho, girls grew up with Barbie like we did with TF's , don't mess with their barbies. Plus are'nt barbies made perfect so girls will have a good example to follow.
A fat toothless barbie may be more realistic, but no kid's going to want to follow that path. They'll just have her make out with her brothers Ram Man.
That's another thing, girls are bad. Poor Ken always got dumped for He Man becasue he had muscles and a giant kitty
So instead of worrying about his states unemployment, or looking into cleaner coal for power production, this guy is worried about Barbie? Barbie? For real?!? If i was a voter in his district i would email him and tell him to enjoy his time in office cause it won't last long.
I sure am glad that a state government is tackling as issue as important as little girls perception of themselves through the toy medium.
This man needith to step away from the Subject of Barbie before a fangirl runs him over with on her Barbie Jeeps. If only I actully owned one I could fit, this Barbie-fangirl would do it herself.
Why should they change them? Who wants a fat barbie anyways?
You never know, they might buy those fat Barbies up.
*looks at your Energon Prime*
Revenge of The Fab Fallen.
Ugh is right.
Here is Barbie's reply.
