Barbie Fairytopia

Barbie, Barbie oh Barbie, how brilliant Mattel was to have created you, little girls idolized you, big girls wanted to be like you, but had they ever knew? ..... It's actually painful to be like you.

Barbies are very strong gender markers, she may be just a mere doll in Mattel's business perspective but through time, she's 50 years old by the way, and yet, jesus christ she hadn't age,  it transcends from just a mere toy and has become a very heated topics in debate among feminist scholars on issues concerning body ideals, femininity, gender identity and stereotypes.

This is my daughter's doll and for heaven's sake her suffragette mother just can't beat the system, I've rested my case and carted one.
