Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

the fact that young girls are obsessed isn't barbies faulth.I mean the whole society from the start of capitalism and consuming items,etc wanted to make women think and act so naive.You watch "barbies" in tv all the time,the models on the other hand aren't the one to blame.Those that show them in a way that say to a girl:this is how u should be to became famous,rich,happy,etc...Barbie isn't just another way to screw young minds.It just followed the way society wanted things exist nothing more thn this.You think any1 was going to buy a fat,ugly and old doll?

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

I think they are just dolls that were created by stereotypically influenced creators. They are just dolls. Not to mention the stereotype of being blonde, blue eyed, and skinny wasn't created by Barbie itself, it was created by the general public and Barbie was just reinforces it. I'm sure if people started thinking 300 pound women were beautiful Barbie would have a doll line for that, just as a marketing ploy.

As long as i can put my arms around my girlfriend I'm fine, but it is better to be healthy. There is no excuse for being obese.

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

Barbie was the cause of my bulimia :'[







... I truly think it's just clever marketing. No one wants to wake up to a frumpy middle-aged wrinkle-infested doll. It's natural to prefer one doll over another because you find doll #1 more aesthetically pleasing.

It's also enforcing the appearance of an "ideal" woman; how the perfect woman should be, and in some ways enforcing gender roles. I say it does have a significant impact on a little girls (they will grow up with a slight impaired judgement, be more critical about their body image etc.), just as a supermodel may cause an adolescent to develop anorexia nervosa.

all i can say is that, that may have been the orginal idea in the beginning and then since they say that it made money they quit the idea though it maybe still working

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

I REALLY doubt it started as a conspiracy to brainwash little girls.

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

It's more of a brainwash to black girls. AND BEFORE I GET FLAMED FOR SAYING STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD...
take a look at this:http://www.alternet.org/blogs/video/47853/
just watch both of the videos and you make a conclusion. I think it wasn't intentional the effects, but it's obvious of what it can do.

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy

I think the real creator didn't have any negative intentions, it's the people of the Mattel that started ruining it.

Now girls see the Barbie as an example of how a woman should be, and honestly, to me Barbie is a very wrong example of this, it's like mentioning Paris and Britney, ew.

While I don't think mattel had the specific intention of brainwashing black girls, I think barbie does have an affect of how a black girl might view herself (she'll start thinking that an ideal woman is white skinned, white skin is more beautiful, etc). With that said, the documentary is depressing They are all way more prettier than any barbie doll! >[

Re: The Barbie Conspiracy
