I hate when they gender toys. Whats wrong with little boys practicing "parenting skills" on a doll like we expect girls too, or with girls learning to build like we expect boys to. I played with whatever was available when I was a kid. I had Barbie but she rode in a Tonka truck(often down the stairs) not a pink Corvette. Oh and my Barbies were lesbians before I even knew it was a thing.
Barbie certainly has changed since I was a little girl back in the 60s, she has adopted many different styles, looks etc.
Kim Phuc was pictured in a world-famous and photograph from the Vietnam war, running naked from an airborne attack, horribly burned with napalm, in June of 1972. She now runs The Kim Foundation International, and she acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNESCO.
