Should Barbie Come In A Plus-Size? Hell No! Video!
"A controversy is brewing over a request to remake Barbie in way contrary to the iconic image so many girls knew growing up.
Plus-Size-Modeling.com is suggesting Mattel create a plus-size Barbie. While some say more realistic curves would be a better role model for girls, others say an overly large Barbie would be an unhealthy example. "
Barbie`s life-size dimensions are shocking, if the iconic doll were an actual woman, she would be 5`9", have a 39" bust, an 18" waist, 33" hips and a size 3 shoe. (According to Galia Slayen Huffington Post) I don`t think any dude would want to knock boots with such a grotesque lady.
But creating a plus-size Barbie isn`t the answer, we don`t want to send out the message to impressionable young girls that it`s OK to look like a fat pig. Being obese is unhealthy, uncool and unattractive, period!
I would be in favor of manufacturing a plus-size Barbie only if the abomination was called Henrietta and she came with a pig`s curly tail.
Yes girls come in all sizes and shapes, but giving the impression that it`s normal to weigh as much as a baby hippo is politically-correct madness.
