Despite Feminists’ Attempts, Barbie is Back

By Debbie Schlussel
Hillary Clinton wouldn’t let Chelsea have one (no, not a mirror). And hundreds of thousands of feminists constantly speak out against Barbie. (I had several as a kid–“Superstar Barbie” was my favorite.)
It’s no big deal to them that there are far worse dolls, like Bratz. And that one toy company recently scrapped plans to make stripper dolls aimed at six-year-olds. They’re dead set against Barbie, mostly because Barbie is thin (and also because she’s feminine).
It’s not like Barbie (full name: Barbara Millicent Roberts) made anyone anorexic. Has the thin Barbie even made a dent in the ever-increasing obese population of American women? Hardly.


Despite all the opposition and villification of Barbie, the doll is the TOP TOY for girls, this holiday season, according to the National REtail Federation (TMX Elmo is tops for boys). Sales of Barbie have been up, this year, for the first time in several years. I think it’s a backlash against feminism and the butchification/masculinization of women, and Mattel’s abandonment of silly Barbie-broke-up-with-Ken-and-is-an-independent-woman stories. (If only Mattel could get the hint and stop turning Ken into a girlie-man.)
Sales of the Rosie O’Donnell doll–not doing too well. The Hillary doll. Ditto.
And BTW, for our readers who may need some holiday shopping tips for kids, here are a couple of hints:
These are for GIRLS (NOT boys) . . .

(I got both of these for Channukah as a kid and enjoyed them.)

These are for BOYS (NOT girls) . . .

I hate these liberals and feminazis who insist on giving their boys effeminate gifts and their girls masculine ones. Way to mess up your kid and cause him/her to grow up to be just like this person . . .

Maybe the feminists have always been jealous?

But Debbie I loved playing with guns and stick horses and cowboy hats when I was little. I climbed trees too! I had Barbies but they were usually the subjects of scalping by Indians! On the other hand my oldest boy when he was 3 wanted a Barbie, so we bought him one. That lasted about 3 months and the Barbie was virtually destroyed!
If a girl wants a “boy” toy, so? And if a boy wants a “girl” toy, so? Telling them they can’t have it because its “wrong” because of the gender is just stupid, buy them the toy!

Fat “tubby” dikes like Rosie and Hillary can’t stand Barbie because she is such a pleasant contrast to themselves and what they are: sadistic, demonic, feminazi cultists bent on blurring the distinction between femininity and masculinity and destroying everything beautiful in humanity.
And by God if they aren’t damn near to reaching that goal. With our effeminate failing civilian leadership and political elite, the only thing that may save our nation and Western civilization is a second American Revolution.

Ahmedinejad gives his kids Klaus Barbie dolls.

Carl, I don’t think you understand the implications that can have on a boy or girl with such toys.
Anyway, I never….eeeeeeeeever….knew that Barbie was so hated by these death buster so-called feminists. There’s a reason they don’t go after Bratz: Becuase they repersent the slut mentally that’s taken over most females in our society today.

DS–“…Has the thin Barbie has made a dent in the ever-increasing obese population of American women? Hardly.”
Let’s buy the skinny barbies and give them to our fat females–a little anorexia won’t hurt them will it? (oops–in bad taste, sorry)
But then what do we do for all the men fatties?
Dunkin Donuts marketing is too powerful. Help!

Love the ez bake oven! Seriously though, this is important because of the lib/fem desire to neuter our males. We need men to be men, especially with all this Jihad from the Islamofascists. I wish the lesbian liberal freak women would stop trying to feminize men and turn women into dykes. It won’t work though, nature will win every time. Look at Rosie, she is a walking/talking freak show and can’t even write full sentences at this point. It is pitiful.

For the sake of the children,lets hope the Rosie and Hillary dolls come with a burqa.

“Ahmedinejad gives his kids Klaus Barbie dolls.”
“Love the ez bake oven!”
There’s a connection there someplace … maybe at Dachau?
Sick humor I know, but after seeing that pic of Rosie O’Donut my synapses misfired.

Hilarious, but sad, too. I am so sick of Rosie and her “in-your-face” rants. Why does she get so much air time? Far from being the funny gal she portrays herself as, she is a self-absorbed, hateful, belligerent, obnoxious, venom-spewing, ignorant, low-class, vitriolic, bloated dyke. Oh, and a bitch, too. There, I said it. I feel better now.

Buy a Barbie and a GI Joe doll so they can get married!

AirborneVet on December 13, 2006 at 1:41 pm

There’s no stigma against a man being interested in eating, growing, or slaughtering food, so why should there be one against a man preparing food?
Everyone, regardless of what’s between their legs, should know how to cook a meal for themselves and their families. It’s got nothing to do with “neutering males”, it’s just common sense. Not everyone can always live in a household where there is a woman dedicated to food prep. Most people live alone for some portion of their lives, and not just out of college when you order pizza every night–my grandfather has survived my grandmother; he learned to cook when her health failed.
If the EZ-Bake Oven game in neutral or primary colors, I’d buy one for my nephew; instead I’ll just buy age-appropriate cookbooks and help him with the real oven.
And I wish I’d had a GI Joe doll. My Barbies had to marry stuffed animals. Interspecies marriage, eeew!

If the boy’s got any sort of imagination, any Barbie dolls he receives will quickly become guns in his mind, anyway. Those long legs are pretty easy to imagine as a gun barrel.

Despite Debbie’s feminist-bashing, she is still a 37-year-old, unmarried, childless, abrasive career woman. She and the Ann Coulter types clearly bash to cover up their masculine personalities.
If I may play headshrinker for a moment, I suspect women like Debbie and Ann are like Katherine from “Taming of the Shrew.” These kinds of women are so aggressive because they think they will attract a real He-Man type to assert himself, smack them down (metaphorically speaking) and bring the submissive kitten out in them. But with this strategy, they run the risk of attracting a “whipped” kind of man that they despise so much, yet balances out their personalities.

    It’s so great to see ladies coming out against the vileness that is feminazism.

    And I love it when the feminazis get on their high horse (perhaps that should be rocking horse as it is more childish and suitable for them) and attack such ladies. Further proof of their moronic ways of thinking.

    The truth of the matter is that men will have far greater respect for and interest in ladies like Debbie than feminazis, unless of course they complete manginas.

    Feminism = Epic Fail
