We All Don’t Want To Look Like Barbie

7 Aug

Make-up, plastic surgery,etc., the wonderful ways of life to help us look like our idol, the glamorous, all-knowing Barbie. 

Barbie has been idolized for years and still are the most popular toys (among Bratz dolls) out there for girls ages 5-8. Sad but true, many of these girls grow up thinking they are supposed to look like Barbie and unfortunately the media isn’t telling them otherwise.

Society is just beginning to realize that these images of “acceptable beauty” that are shown on television and in magazines are fake. Fake and misleading. I will be the first one to say that even though I KNOW we shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to plastic or photoshopped pictures, when I see ads I’m just like…”um, I don’t look like that.” It’s not enough for society to KNOW. It’s time to SHOW. 

The pictures in this post are Barbie to Real Women comparisons. The picture on the right is of an actual model. Looking at Barbie I’m sure she feels the way we feel when we look at her. Oh the irony. 

Personally, Barbie’s body does not appeal to me. But who am I when millions of others say that this is the way women should look?
