Is Barbie banned at your house?

Posted by   + Show Post

I posted this picture of my newbie on facebook and I got a message pleading that I do my research on barbie.. barbie gives women and men unrealistic expectations of women.... -.-



are you FREKING kidding me?


Barbie never hurt anyone. SHE IS A DOLL. I played with barbie no body issues here. My grandma had a HUGE barbie collection so I got barbie everything as a kid. Did not scar me one bit.  I unfriended them. It was an old acquaintances Mother who sent me the message. I couldn't help but laugh. My daughter is almost 7 weeks old and has 20+ new in box barbies from my grandmothers collection that I saved plus my entire childhood collection ( yep those were saved too).  I am so pumped to be able to look at new barbie stuff too  when the time comes.

I have always hated that doll, so it is probably a good thing that I had a boy. I would have taught a daughter how to destroy the damn things.

Riiiiight. Because I wasn't just trying to answer her post title question. I have three sons and no daughters... So yeah... I'm not going to be like, "My imaginary daughter loves barbies!" Because that would be a lie and a stupid one at that.

Barbie has never been banned. My girls have had Barbies but they didn't show too much interest in them for too long.

I never once really looked at Barbie in the way that some people do. I think it's ridiculous. Why dissect everything like that and make something so harmless into something so stupid!?
