Barbie moet sterf

Roer se geskiedenisles re Barbie noop my om te reageer.

“They can dress her up in a lab coat or a business suit, but Barbie’s purpose has nothing to do with what she wears and everything to do with how she looks. That is her ultimate message to the girls who enter her world: What you do doesn’t matter unless you ooze sex appeal while doing it. And that means having certain physical attributes, such as unnaturally long legs and huge breasts.

A team of bored number crunchers with nothing better to do once extrapolated Barbie’s dimensions to discover what she would look like if she were human. The resulting description revealed not a person, but a genuine freak. Barbie’s statistics in a live human being would produce a woman over 7 feet tall with a 44-inch bust, a 17-inch waist and 40-inch hips.” [Sy sou bv. nie kon regop bly nie.]

    Agge nee wat. Ek sien niemand tekere gaan oor die proporsies van He-Man se borskas en die onnatuurlikheid van Bob the Builder se groot ronde kop nie.

    ‘n Prof hier in die kaap gebruik Barbie en Ken om gender-issues en die definiering van rolle in die samelewing in die klas te verduidelik.
    He-Man het ook ‘n bepaalde boodskap: Jy moet tuff wees!
