S&M Barbie?

July 16, 2008

From The Sun, via Boing Boing.

BARBIE’S new S&M look has whipped up a storm – with protesters dubbing it “filth”.

The doll’s image is transformed with kinky fishnets, motorcycle jacket, black gloves and boots. Makers Mattel say Black Canary Barbie, out in September, is based on a DC comic superhero of the same name.

But religious group Christian Voice said: “Barbie has always been on the tarty side and this is taking it too far.

A children’s doll in sexually suggestive clothing is irresponsible – it’s filth.”

It’s the fishnets, isn’t it? Barbie kind of always dresses like a hussy, I don’t see how this is any worse.

    I don’t see how it’s much worse either.

    So if we put the doll in the Canary costume that had pants, that would be kosher?

    She’d still be a whore for Ollie, though.

    Psshaw. Barbie’s worn fishnets before. Trust me—the maddening task of threading her pointy-toed legs into tights that are nothing but easy-to-snag holes is not something a young girl easily forgets.
