Barbie has been controversial FOREVER. There have been studies of how her proportions match up to real women, indictments of her taste in men, and when she finally had her own voice, she responded, "Math is hard." Tisk.
Barbie has never been a good role model for girls. She drives unrealistic vehicles, has a spotty career record, and her wardrobe embarrasses the Kardashians.
Mattel has made some adjustments to her measurements, and quit letting her talk. Smart move. Even smarter? Tattoo Barbie! Yes, it's perfectly acceptable for women to be tattooed. In fact, women are just as likely to get tattooed as men.
Speaking as a tattooed woman (heavily tattooed, I might add), I totally dig this.
