How long before someone with a similar body to the "curvy" dolls complains it's being labeled as such?

I have now read a few articles on the new Barbies, accompanying Tweets, and understand the agita original Barbie has caused and why these new Barbies will make girls and women feel better about their own bodies and not strive for the same body as a doll.

Now if only we had skinny-fat with zits G.I. Joe and fat neckbeard Thor so boys would not grow up being traumatized by action figures.

Imagine the shitstorm for the first hapless male that points out she's just fat.

The degree of unattainable buffness exhibited by many of my action figures growing up has left me permanently scarred, with emotional and body-image issues.







WHERE IS MY RECOURSE?

Superman looks attainable...you could probably do that if you dedicated your life to it.

I personally am saving up to have adamantium claws installed.

My daughters had no interest in barbies and ignored them. But boy did they love Polly Pockets. And yes, it was important that all the clothes be interchangeable.

Dear God, I'd almost managed to forget about Polly Pockets.

I will never be able to fly of my own power. I am damaged.

I will not lie - I loved assembling the playsets. The stuff with moving parts was really cool. My favorite was a water park with water slides and fountains and the fashion show where the doll went in an elevator that put the clothes on as she climbed floors. But we had bags and bags of the tiny little pieces.

Maybe you should sometimes.

You have no idea how cool those things were:
This car was awesome: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00005BT0F/?shop28-20
It was basically a transformer that switched from a regular car to a long limo with a hot tub.
Even better was the Plane.
But best were the really complicated sets that had all sorts of moving parts and conversion features.

The Jacuzzi is a nice addition. Reminds me of a Motley Crue video.

I was just about to post that. Looks pretty unambiguous, although the anti-government morons will read whatever they want into it. Tried to run past the barricade, then obviously reached into his coat (which did end up having a gun in it). He was actually shot in the back, but he was facing down another officer at the time.



Certainly not "on his knees with his hands up" like some of the accounts being passed around.

You will never stop the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement with your cover-up stories.
