barbie commentary

Perhaps this seems a bit immature, this fascination with dolls. But I like this one because her hips are so wide her pants hardly fit, and I feel sorry for her. Her hips were not this broad in the eighties. Wider waist, smaller breasts, fake painted-on underwear. I guess a lot of mothers complained about body dysmorphia and easy access to boy dolls. Many people will be disappointed to learn this change has occurred. Maybe a certain cold-as-steel corporation who dares to trademark a particular shade of pink and who pretends to be a lot nicer than they are will attempt to sue me for drawing attention to it.
