Just when grown women have finally stopped carrying Hello Kitty handbags, Mattel launches "Barbie clothes" for adults. That’s right. Now actual full-sized sexbots with tiny high-heel-shaped feet and wasp-waists can buy $176 dollar Barbie jeans and $140 Barbie sweatshirts. With the popularity of the vile dolls creeping justly towards the crapper, the toy company reasons that designer Barbie Luxe brand clothing "will catch on with trendsetting teens and women" to whom the prepubescent look for "aspiration," thereby causing said 8-year-olds to hound their mothers for new Barbies.
Spending 140 bucks on a pink Barbie sweatshirt is pretty sad, but buying a Barbie for your daughter is the Western equivalent of holding her down while grandma slices off her clitoris with a piece of broken glass.
Thanks for the link Leslie.
