I want this Barbie

So apparently, straight laced... uptight... moms are having a fit over this new barbie doll. Pink hair, tattoos and a spiky little cactus dog named Bastardo ... I. MUST.HAVE.HER.  
Not a huge Barbie fan, considering that I am 47...crap...48 years old. (gaaaaahhhh 48 sounds soooo much older then 47) but I love the obscure take on old favorites. And this is awesome. And it's a collector Barbie btw - so all those soccer mom's bitching about the scandalous tattoo's need to shut it. Or wait, here's a thought - just don't BUY IT!

As Jacqueline Burt says in her blog on this same subject - "let's get real for a minute: Barbie 

has always dressed like a $5 hooker. It's not like this new model represents some drastic

departure from her usual style..."  

LMAO - and it's so true. They have no problem with the double D boobs and the feet molded specifically for "come fuck me quick" heels, so why the drama?

I think everyone needs to take a xanax and chill the hell out. Everything is so politically correct and uptight anymore... It really is a wonder that any of us managed to survive our childhoods without parents that were so worried about us.

Anybarbieisawhoreway - I want her! And at $50 bucks, you can bet no little kids in my family will be playing with her.

PS: Yes I know I am not working yet because the DMV has yet to get me my license and I won't be spending $50 on a damn doll but a girl can dream can't she?


  1. I love the dog. Such a bite on the rich girl carrying the cute little dog. Awesome. However if I had $50 I can think of many other ways to spend it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention and whoever is b*tching about the doll, walk away, do not purchase and do not worry about whoever does decide to indulge a whim.

  2. I know this is going to come as a shock to you, because it came as a shock to me, but I agree with those uptight moms...and I'm not even a mom!! I'm all for individuality and expressing yourself but I just don't think that this doll has a place for young kids. Now, do I think it is great for a tween, teen, or even an adult...sure. I just don't think that a 3 year old needs to be totting around a tattooed Barbie. It may be because I have no tattoos, never died my hair pink, and the "punk" scene makes me nauseous but I just don't get the appeal.

    That being said I have no problem with it being sold...and's a shocker...DON'T BUY IT if you don't like it! For parents that don't like the damned thing...your kids aren't driving to the store and buying it for just DON'T BUY THE FREAKING THING if you don't like it...and problem solved...they won't have it!

    I may not like the thing but I'm not going to go on some rampage to keep it from production/stores/etc. Plus, as you mentioned it doesn't seem to be priced or marketed to young kids anyway. I don't see what the big stink is.
