Please tell me I imagined the following: I heard on the news today that there is a new type of Barbie doll. It's called the Monster line and the first one is a vampire. Some people are protesting against this "toy" because of the body image it promotes (the doll is stick skinny, skinnier than Barbie and more teenage looking rather than young womanish) and the info that comes with the vampire girl says her hobby is flirting with boys.
The company's comeback to the complaints is that the doll promotes diversity.
What the fuck? We need a teenage vampire doll so all the teenage vampire girls out there will feel they are being represented?
Stop the world. I wanna get off.
Infinities of love,
