But it's a fact if you live with cows on the street and in your houses, you are mad. It's called mad India disease and is said to effect at least 1 billion people, it's also incurable which equates to the state of indian life and intellect.

In your case cock head, ignorance is bliss as it makes you look even stupider than you are, if that's possible, which I doubt.

ANYWAY... "Barbie" was originally an ADULT erotic German doll given by a couple to their daughter in the 1930's/40's to play with. Their daughter's name was Barbera.

AND this is what so many white women aspire to be, having have a collection of Barbie dolls from aged 3/4?
...An erotic bleached blonde, pumped up boob job with impossibly high heeled shoes and scanty bright pink clothes.
All as plastic has the "queen' itself. If it weren't so polluting i would melt them all on the barbie.
What a sad expression and example of feminity and womanhood.

I thought the name for the doll came from the movie called "Barbarella", their was quire a lot of publicity surrounding it at the time. If I remember correctly the churches thought it was obscene with mini dress and bikini.

hey Palawa,

No, she/it is just a bit too old being officially 50, for "Barbarella", I think. There was a tv birthday special doco on the 50 years of Barbie not so long ago. I am pretty sure I am right because i was horrified and vindicated because i always thought them horrendous ..giving a young girl a doll with boobs, impossibly long legs, skimpy clothes etc..wrong messages. I am not a feminist but am a prude and then there was, too, the belief of presenting wrongful stereotypes with racial and elitist overtones plus American marketing gimmickery. Yes, a soapbox for me.

I never had one, wouldn't buy one for any child as I find all dolls repulsive.

Fair enough, it must have been referring to something else.

But the real issue with this whole bizarre scenario as I look at the photo again, as she is an Australian girl, "Why is she so WHITE"?
THIS IS NOT A RACIST STATEMENT!!!
Most young women in beauty contests have fake tans or at his time of year a natural summer TAN.

Why is such a lily white girl promoting another lily white "Girl" for an industry in a country of Colour that promotes lighter skin and where skin bleaching products are used and abused?

ANYWAY just a thought or two..but it looks very off to me.

What doesn't look off in the word of the ideological human. Envy plays a big part in the minds of those committed to illusion, you only have t look at fashion to see how bizarre it really is. Then add the cosmetic industry and you have the perfect recipe for conning fools into parting with their money for bugger all but toxification of their bodies.

Wise words indeed, brother, wise words and on point...committed to illusion.. used to wonder with all the time and effort involved in tarting one's self up to impress a fella what happens when the makeup comes off, the pushup bra, the highheeled shoes, the heady perfume and he is faced with the real person...

We can probably add to this the fake boob industry, they all want perky boobs like Barbie.
A fool and her money.....but blokes are buying into now from an early age.

Ah well at least it's not me I would rather spend my money on a good book or shoes I can walk in.
