yeah. my white husband was sucking them a few minutes ago then he ate my coochie and signed his name on it.
For any little girl, a Barbie Doll is a complicated gift because it is so completely unrepresentative of female bodies. Barbie is one of the mothers of negative body images. This is compounded when the child in question is Black. When a Black girl is given a Black doll with Eurocentric features and straight hair, what does it teach her but that she is not beautiful. Because beauty is one of the few sites of female power this can be extremely damaging.
Loanne Hizo Ostlie of Tabloach Productions has been retooling these dolls and selling them on Ebay. This dolls represent the various hair textures that Black women have. They also feature more Afrocentric styles. A child given this doll to play with, will not only learn to see herself as beautiful but understand that she has the right to claim the label of woman.
