Barbie - I had to post this because above all it confused me. Across the decades Barbie has been a pretty terrible representation of the beauty ideal that we hold for young girls. Most of the time Barbie is white, has blue eyes, blonde hair and possesses impossible measurements. In this case however, Barbie is wearing neck rings which the Kayan people of Burma wear, but somehow Barbie is still white.
I think if you went back to the eighteenth century and you asked a fifteen year old boy, 'Would you like to marry a woman who has had plastic bags needlessly inserted into her breasts?', that fifteen year old boy would probably be like, 'what's plastic?'.
