I just read this article about a lawmaker in West Virginia wants to ban the sales of Barbie because she "influence(s) girls to place too much importance on physical beauty, at the expense of their intellectual and emotional development".
Maybe if we do that we should ban television, magazines, and music. I can't speak for everyone, but when I was little I thought 'I wanna be like Barbie cause she's cool', I never thought 'I wanna be like Barbie because she has huge jugs and a tiny waist.' I think skinny starlets have a much higher impact. Plus, Barbie just turned 50and If I look like that at 50, I'm gonna flaunt my bod too.
