I have been a Barbie fan despite all of the controversy that they have garnered over the years. For those that know me, know that I didn’t find it offensive if someone referred to me being Barbie like.
In high school they called me the brown Barbie doll. Some may have found that offensive, but I didn’t take it that way. I was tiny, loved dressing up and playing with make-up. I also happened to be an honour roll student, head of our debating team and head of our cheer leading team.
I was tiny and fierce. I still think that I am today LOL.
I love the new slant of finding a more comprehensive way to idealize women based on real people who are doing amazing things – especially women who break glass ceilings. I’d like to consider myself one of those women.
