YES THANK YOU
THANK YOU OMG you can be powerful and look cutie ok!
THANK YOU AGAIN because it needs to be stressed that Barbie is an image of STRENGTH and even with her unrealistic figure (she’s a doll for goodness’ sake) Mattel had the right idea. They didn’t just have career girl barbies, they also had Barbies for different countries and ethnicities (while not strictly Barbie the character, it was the brand) and Barbie basically allowed girls to see futures and other places where the world used to be so small and limited. And that’s a gift for young girls.
Oh my god third wave feminism please stop
are you guys fucking kidding me? yeah ok barbie has a thousand jobs but uh HELLO her main PURPOSE isn’t to be a fucking instruction tool for vocation training. let me put it this way: WHAT STAYS CONSTANT IN 98% OF BARBIES? her perfect fucking body and her perfect fucking face and her stupid fucking smile.
so what’s REALLY being sent to the young people who play with president barbie and surgeon barbie and cop barbie is, sure kids, there’s a place for women in the workplace, but HERE’S WHAT YOU GOTTA LOOK LIKE TO GET THERE.
HMMMMMMMM. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE ANY KIND OF FEMINIST ISSUE?
LET ME THINK.
HOW ABOUT THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF WOMEN IN UPPER LEVEL POSITIONS ARE THE WHITE, ABLE BODIED ONES WHO ARE PLEASING TO THE MALE GAZE?
fuck whoever seriously took the time to make a slideshow about how positive barbie is and how she is challenging gender roles. seriously go fuck yourself, you’re an idiot.
and- “you can be powerful and look cutie ok!” i mean is this a fucking joke to you or…?
i am so worried for the third wave right now.
