Why do feminists

disrespect Barbie?


Before 1959,

there were only baby dolls, placing girls into mother roles.

 

Angela Merkel, arguably the world's most powerful woman, claims she's not a feminist. Why is that?


Channeling Darwin, 

"Survival of the Blondest"

is about colorism. 

Society favors females with light skin and straight blonde hair. Color-coding from bottom- to-top, dark-to-light, Barbies are layered in a 10-gallon clear glass aquarium. On the bottom layer are the darkest- skinned Barbies, lying down, as Africans were forced to do in middle-passage slave ships. The medium-brown Barbies are layered over the Black ones. The blondes stand up and lean over the edges, like "Evita" on her balcony. The blondes' pointy plastic stiletto shoes stand atop the faces and bodies of their darker-skinned counterparts. Adhesive tape wraps match skin color.

Around 2014,

snowflake"

became a

"slur"

for those 

who favor 

stricter

gun laws. 

I try to be amusing,

if possible,

especially with brutal topics.
