    I find all the nail-polished and Sharpied Barbies around Pinterest lately disturbing. So I created Never-Nude Barbie. Never Nude Barbie was taught as a child that any form of nudity is either uncomfortable, embarrassing, immodest, or sinful. As a teenager, she constantly worried whether her clothes might "make boys have bad thoughts," and now that she's married, she's self-conscious about being naked in front of her husband and feels guilty if it seems like something she's wearing turns him on.

      "For those mamas with girls! No more naked dolls!" -- Does your kid also wear a swimsuit in the bath? Most dolls already have printed-on underwear and no "private parts" anyway! (Also - mamas with girls? Is it acceptable for a boy to have a naked doll, or are we just not letting them see dolls in ANY state of undress?)

      "No more naked Barbies!!" Yeah, make them look like dominas with Sharpie, that is soooo much more innocent looking and pure :D

      Offended by a naked Barbie doll? Give her a body suit. WTF?? She looks a bit like dominatrix barbie now. Ha!

      Offended by a naked Barbie doll? Give her a body suit. She looks a bit like dominatrix barbie now. (are there people who are offended by a naked barbie?)

      If you know anything the little boys love the boobs and make a big deal about it. It's a good idea to keep those thoughts on the back burner...No more naked Barbies...with a little permanent marker, she is now wearing a permanent body suit!

      When Mommyblogging Goes Weird! To avoid making company uncomfortable with naked Barbies flaunting their immodesty, grab a Sharpie and paint some bondage wear on them!

      She looks like she's wearing a shiny black leather bodysuit. But hey, she's not NAKED! No More Naked Barbies found here

      Ok, seriously? I'm NOT taking a sharpie to my kids' dolls. (If/When I have any girls). I managed to not become a stripper because I had *naked* Barbies, and I'm sure my girls will, too.

    'My "Naked" Truth' - As I looked in the mirror -- clear-eyed and brave -- I claimed every inch of my body with love, honor and deep care. This body is me. She has held my soul and carried my heart for all of my days. Each wrinkle and imperfection is a badge of my living and of my giving of life.

    Feminism + Barbie [I myself am still not a huge fan of her, however, she really really needs to not be the symbol of anti-feminism. I mean, come on.]

    Ageism of #women in #media

    Do women have to be naked to get into US Museums? Less than 3% of the artists in the Met Museum are women, but 83% of the nudes are female. #feminism #feminist #sexism

    Sexism in advertising

    So weird!!!

    Kim Phuc was pictured in a world-famous and iconic photograph from the Vietnam war, running naked from an airborne attack, horribly burned with napalm, in June of 1972. Since then, Kim has found peace, and a message she can offer, borne of her suffering. She runs The Kim Foundation International, and she acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNESCO. She has transformed into a viable, visible symbol of peace and hope. Hers is an important story of resilience, courage, and forgiveness.

    Argh. Sometimes I just need a better book... Haha, I just noticed this said teenager post :/

    (Previous comment: Paint some clothes on a Barbie with nail polish so you don't have naked barbies laying around! SMART!)... But Barbie doesn't even have nipples or any genitals to begin the female body really so offensive we can't even see a smoothed out version of it? Way to teach body shame. Shove your modesty.

    I judge myself for myself. I clearly see the blame game as pointless

    Who are you and where can I find you?!

    No means No. I feel bad that people have SO MANY ways to say no. Because most people don't understand those two letters together.


    Every girl everywhere deserves to feel awesome!! :)
