This is what I have been saying for years.
Where as GI Joe’s biceps are bigger than his waist and he only ever does one masculine male power fantasy thing. >_>
and honestly I never paid attention to Barbie’s size as a kid, but all my barbies were successful business women like the ones in the telenovelas my mom liked to watch. I never thought Barbie was supposed to be a “real” woman anymore than I thought animated characters like Minky Momo were supposed to represent real people in a realistic way. I always assumed she was stylized.
My mom obsessing over her weight actually affected me a lot more.
