of the word *model* and *doll*

anonymous asked:

but that's like with barbie too, adults complain she's too skinny to be a role model, but aren't we suppose to educate kids that they don't need to compare themselves with dolls? and that you're not suppose to judge anybody or anything by what they look like? and that it's what's on the inside that counts? have you heard adults trying to manipulate the way barbie looks, they don't even tell kids other things about barbie?

barbie hate is a huuuuge pet peeve of mine! sure, shes not anatomically correct, but what doll is? have you seen bratz dolls? betty spaghetti? not once as a child did i think “hmm i want a huge head or maybe no bones at all”

you know what i wanted? i wanted to ride a horse like barbie, go to space like barbie, be a doctor like barbie, go on super cool holidays like barbie and have heaps of friends like barbie. sure i might still be rocking the barbie blonde fringe thing but not once did i want to be as skinny as barbie. the thought never crossed my mind when i first played with the dolls.

i learnt to look like a barbie doll from pretty much every that was not a barbie doll. tv shows, movies, adverts, kids in the school yard, adults, all of them telling me to be pretty and skinny and keep quiet. 

why do we as adults and the mature members of society, continue to push our societal conceptions onto children who simply enjoy a toy? sure, we can argue all the live long day about capitalist propaganda and subliminal messaging, but children dont get that. they see a cool toy of their favourite character, and they want to play with it. end of.

our job is to monitor how our children react to certain things, and correct negative thought processes as they develop. im not saying give your kid whatever toy they want and leave it at that. but at some point, you have to realise that children dont over analyse like we do. step in when necessary, but dont react to a non-existent problem. educate your children ffs

i am 100% pro-barbie for being successful in every possible field, whilst still rocking the pink and glitter. it took me far too long in life to realise what a role model that doll is because of the negative connotations behind her.

its SO dehumanising and cruel, i want to personally melt it down and give her some lovely candles instead

It is completely dehumanising. I know it’s just a model, but because it’s a model the autonomy she has a person when all fours, deciding who can touch her etc, is completely removed. I’m not entirely sure how to put into words what I mean, but it’s like they’ve created a sex doll rather than a statue to pay homage to her being the most influential woman in hiphop.

Nike Air Pegasus ’89 – It’s Making A Comeback

Now listen up. These might not be the most “razzle-dazzle” colorway of all Nike Air Pegasus ’89 colorways out there, but heed my words when I say the model will be making a comeback. And dare I say, it will be.

This rendition of the Nike Air Pegasus ’89 keeps all elements of Nike’s OG construction and dolls it up in a Lunar Grey hue. The upper trades off between sport mesh material and soft suede, giving us a contrast in textures, while teal takes care of the contrast in colors. Hit up your local Nike retailer and see if they’ve got these in stock for you.

Ella’s 3rd Birthday - 27th August 2015.

Ella - The World According To A Disney Doll.

Ella celebrates her 3rd Birthday today, and the 3rd anniversary of her blog too … Awwww, I cant believe it’s already been 3 years since I found her in the Disney Store, tucked away at the back of a shelf behind all the newer model Cinderella dolls. It was like she was waiting there for me.

Many happy returns Ella, I hope you have a lovely day

You can check out Ella’s blog in her own words about her life as a Disney doll, including many many photos of her adventures on her facebook page here … https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ella-The-World-According-to-a-Disney-Doll/150797015075007

Kendall Jenner Looks Exactly Like Barbie

Kendall Jenner
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a series of selfies on
Instagram showing her all dolled up with a blond wig and Barbie-like makeup. In the first snap, she captioned the blurry shot. But in the second pic, the runway model appears to be sleeping in bed while perfectly pouting for the camera to see. There’s no word yet on what the hair and makeup makeover was for, but as of yesterday the brunette beauty was in St. Barts with her famous family including Khloé, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian.
