Barbie pit: silverbellsolicitor It kind of really corfuses me when Barbie commercials have little girls dressing them up and brushing their hair Like no Barbie is not about fashion. Barbie is about collecting as many dolls as you can get your grubby 7 year old hands on and dominating the living room with your expansive empire of plastic women. Barbie is about creating intricate social structures and spicy inter-family conflicts between town house residents. Barbie is about formulating complex back stories for tortured Ken dolls with emotional scars. It's about creating near-sadistic dramatic plot twists that split up marriages and cause that one Barble you really dislike to be ceremoniously tossed down the stairs in order to be offed by the jealous ex-wife of Ken #4. kerryrenaissance Yes, but how do you make it into a marketable commercial that won't frealk parents and caregivers out? quasi-normalcy I've always had the impression that advertisers don't really understand how girls play with their toys. mappysnappy When I played with Barbies I had this thing called The Dead Pit" which was a purple bratz laundry hamper. So whenever a Barbie got killed off she would go in there. And what I would do was I would carry her to the dead pit while singing the dead pit song. The dead pit song was just saying The dead pit over and over again in different tones. Anyway, once I finally reached the pitl would announce (name) has died. And drop her in. I would wait a few moments. Then, I would violently shake the hamper while shrieking, pretending to be the tortured souls of dead barbies from the underworld. I thought it was hilarious Source: duplexity 126,102 notes Barbie pit

courtonidufun: takashi0: meenahpreshuspeixes: 👏 stop criticizing a hunk of plastic for your inability to teach girls how to move past difficulties 👏 Hasn’t Barbie had basically every job on the face of the earth? And isn’t the reason she’s so skinny something to do with her being able to actually stand up? If I recall, her body shape just comes from the fact that it makes the clothing look flattering instead of frumpy on her, and appearing normal shaped when it’s on her (And being based on the naughty German doll that’s also based on a naughty comic) I can honestly say that I never once as a little girl looked at my Barbies and thought “oh man I must be worthless because I don’t look like that!“. I didn’t aspire to her body type any more than I aspired to the body type of my Care Bears. It was just a damn toy.: Barbie doesn't hurt young girls shitty at raising confident girls and expect the rest of the world to do it for you you guys are just courtonidufun: takashi0: meenahpreshuspeixes: 👏 stop criticizing a hunk of plastic for your inability to teach girls how to move past difficulties 👏 Hasn’t Barbie had basically every job on the face of the earth?

Woman Creates Same-Sex Barbie Family in Support of Marriage Equality-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A doll artist in Australia has created a same-sex Barbie family to encourage others to be more supportive about marriage equality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Betty Strachan-Otter is the artist behind these creative dolls. She sells the dolls through her "All The Little Dolls" business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What makes Strachan-Otter's creations so unique though, is their realism. In the past, she has created other thought provoking Barbies such as a pregnant and a breastfeeding Barbie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In an interview with Daily Mail, Strachan-Otter explained that she created the lesbian mothers and their three children in efforts to normalize the portrayal of same-sex families. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "I like to use my dolls to depict scenes containing positive affirmations to those who can relate to them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ For Strachan-Otter, same-sex marriage shouldn't even be up for debate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Nobody worries about who you love when you’re in a committed straight relationship so why should same-sex couples need to be treated any differently?”: Woman Creates Same-Sex Barbie Family in Support of Marriage Equality @balleralert Woman Creates Same-Sex Barbie Family in Support of Marriage Equality-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A doll artist in Australia has created a same-sex Barbie family to encourage others to be more supportive about marriage equality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Betty Strachan-Otter is the artist behind these creative dolls.

Then I moved onto the lego. If your Barbies' lives aren't like Game of Thrones, you're not doing it right. When I was 6/7, I buried my Barbie doll in the school's playground because I wanted her soul to haunt it I never really had barbies, but when I was a kid I used to play a game called 'Highway to Extinction' which was just me jamming a playskool jeep full of dinosaur beanie babies and ramming it repeatedly into a wall My barbies were basically paint brushes with female bodies for handles. What the fuck Math class is tough!
