Barbie also sets a nonsensical standard for girls' perception of romantic relationships with hetero males.
I believe in respecting all choices in life style. Fact is 90-95 % of people choose a heterosexual life style. What nonsensical about a romantic relationship between a man and a woman ?
Barbie is white and more than perfectly proportioned. Should you find a slightly overweight looking doll for our daughters ? Maybe. I wonder if anybody would buy it. I agree Ken is a little too perfect too. Hetero men never look as well groomed as Ken. This is all fantasy. Children live is a fantasy world and grow up to believe everything in life is broken.
I have built doll houses. For me it's fun.
Cinderella can and does come true for real women. Men have to fend for themselves. People are outraged with the Kelly Clarkson / Brandon Blackstock settlement. How outrageous she gives him $200,000 a month support. If the genders were reversed nobody would talk about it, since it happens so often.
I am the only boy with four sisters. So understand woman more than most men. I am concerned that women's so called "standards" for men will lead to a life without a man. That's unfortunate for both.
