Tokidoki Barbie

WOW..... I know that I am slow to hop on the Tokidoki Barbie bandwagon..... About 8 months behind, but DAMN!  I am surprised at some of the opinions people are spouting in regards to her "look".
With terms like "prostitute", "slut", "trailer trash" etc being bandied about, I'm not feeling the love.

As I said before, I had an extensive Barbie doll collection as a child.... Hell, I even had a hippy looking Cher doll which didn't inspire me to smoke pot, well at least not when I was 10.  And *if* I smoked pot at a later time, that decision had NOTHING to do with the fact that my mother had previously given me a Cher doll.

If Barbie is a tool to influence young girls into making smart career decisions, I find McDonalds Barbie MUCH more offensive:
If we are going with the theory that girls would choose to become rockin' tattooed girls strictly because their Barbie had some sick ink......... then how did I and every girl that didn't own one make the decision to become tattooed???  And what about girls that didn't even own Barbie dolls?? Jeezus, they must be completely lost.
Interestingly, I didn't own the Nurse Barbie (although this one was a little before my time) yet chose to go to nursing school all on my own.
She is pretty fucking awesome though, I'd like to own one now.
And the only people I observe attempting to look like Barbie are full grown adult women!!  Who are obviously suffering from some serious mental disorders.  Here is a case in point:

I'm sure some people like that "look", but it's a little frightening to me........ tattoos are much more beautiful, and REAL.
But it's her right to do as she pleases to her body.
Just as it's my right, and the right of every little girl lucky enough to own a Tokidoki Barbie, to tattoo or not to tattoo. 
The way I look at it, if someone is looking at me, judging me, criticizing me for my tattoos......... well someone else is getting a break!!!

While looking for Barbie images to post I found this one:

Cat Burgler Barbie........... A Barbie with tattoos causes more of an uproar than Criminal Barbie?? REALLY???
Being a cat burgler IS glamorous, fo sho...... so i retract my own outrage :-)
I bet she has some tattoos under that catsuit, since the prevailing theory is that people with tattoos are criminals................... ok I'm done being snarky for the moment............

Enjoy your Friday my friends!!!
I will taking a motorcycle ride this evening (thus enforcing the stereotypes, you're welcome)!!
