Would you buy Barbies for your kids that are dressed like hookers?

I was at wal mart today and half of them don't have a whole shirt and it looks like they are wearing tube tops for skirts. What happened?

  • I went to Big Lots and bought some dresses for DD's barbies, as some of the originals have gone missing. They're so skimpy, I told DD they were their nightgowns.

  • do you even know what you're're implying by this that every woman with a perfect figure who likes to show it off looks like a hooker...we are all sexual beings so why be afraid of our bodies...there is nothing wrong with what barbies wear

  • almost every barbie that my daughter has -- and almost every barbie that I remember having dress the same way..I still buyt hem, she changes their outfits all the time anyways...sometimes even makes their dresses out of washrags or whatever she finds....I dont think my daughter is suddenly going to want to dress in a "tube top skirt" ..or a washrag lol

  • It doesn't bother me. Like a pp said, it's not like my daughter is going to start dressing like that because of a Barbie. Heck, most of the time, the Barbies my children play with end up naked. I don't freak out about that either.

  • I don't allow my kids to dress like hookers. I certainly would not reward them for doing so by buying them a Barbie.
