BARBIE GOES BI?
970DJ - New Jersey ^ | 7.13.2004

Posted on 07/13/2004 9:27:08 AM PDT by KMC1

NEW YORK - There was quite the toy "furor" over Barbie's end of her relationship with longtime Ken. Mattel has moved her on to her new friend Blane. But if one toymaker has their way - Barbie might be inclined to meet Bobbie.

The NY papers had the story...the "Bobbie" doll was developed by a woman who last her wrote a thesis on the pressing and most important issue of why lesbians are so "under represented in pop culture".

Barbie going bi-sexual? Not unless she cuts her hair boy-short, stops shaving her legs, and starts shopping at the local thrift store.

I'm sure there's a large contingent of parents who just can't wait to give their little princess a dyke Barbie doll.

What next? Pink baseball gloves for Little Leaguers?

why are masturbators "under represented in pop culture"?
why are swingers "under represented in pop culture"?
why are celibates "under represented in pop culture"?

Because it's a sexual act and not a "culture" you dolt.

But don't expect to see these Sapphic playthings at your toy store anytime soon. The DYKEdoll figures, which will sell for $49.95 apiece, are aimed at adults

What adult still plays with dolls???

Never mind .... I don't want to know

Oh yeah.

Allow me to take this opportunity to air the AQGeiger definition of a feminist: a woman who's simply angry about not getting anything in the sack.

Family oriented people, parents of innocent children, who today believe they should be tolerant of homosexuals, will quickly change their mind.

Add 100,000,000,000 more votes for the Marriage Amendment and Conservative Republican candidates.

Go for the homosexual Barbie. We appreciate the votes.

I can just see it now.

First there was Malibu Barbie

Now there will be either Massachusetts Barbie or San Francisco Barbie

These Barbies will come with their own spouse Bobbie doll and a miniture marriage license.

Just what every little girl needs in our permissive society(/sarcasm)

Mattel is trading at $16.70 today - down from $17.60 as of 7/7/04.


Mattel downgraded amid 'sluggish' Barbie sales (MAT) By Tomi Kilgore
NEW YORK (CBS.MW) - Mattel (MAT) was downgraded to "sell" from "neutral" at Banc of America as the company's turnaround appears to be longer and more expensive than initially projected. Analyst Gary Cooper cut his price target to $13 from $18.50, and trimmed his 2004 and 2005 earnings forecasts. He sees evidence that Barbie sales are still "sluggish" and margins are expected to decline. Cooper also sees other headwinds facing the industry, such as the recent strengthening of the U.S. dollar, potential cost pressures from the floating of the Chinese yuan, high commodity costs and competition. The stock closed Tuesday down 15 cents at $17.93.


Sounds like Barbie needs to get a real man! GI Joe has been in Iraq for quite some time......

You figure it out. Barbie would be a perfect object for a lesbian.

She's witnessed the removal of toy cars, pens, marbles, vegetables, unidentifiable chemicals.........It's that S&M stuff they're into.

If people like this were any kind of reflection of our ancestors, there would be no industrial age, no farming communities, no ships at sea. However, everyone would know exactly and with great precision what that look from that person across the community fire really meant, whether it was a "I like you look" or "I'm kind of iffy on how you much I like you" or "You smell really bad," as they ate their dinner of fruits and berries (no meat for these folks!).

I remeber "My Buddy" he was always the victim of a mugging or two with a baseball bat in my neighbourhood...when we got bigger the poor tike was a popular archery target and eventually had a "fireworks" accident...

Yeah, we were bad, we broke, burned and blew up all our toys...

This reminds me of a joke. A boy finds his sister playing with his GI Joes and her Barbies. He says, "Why don't you play with your Ken instead, Barbie comes with him anyway." She says, "Not true, she is only faking. She wants a real man."

Santa: What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?

Girl: A Barbie doll, and G.I. Joe.

Santa: But, I thought Barbie comes with Ken.

Girl: No. Barbie comes with G.I. Joe. She only fakes it with ken.

Mattel plays this game too

I saw an official Mattel Barbie the other day that I thought had in big letters “Call Girl Barbie”

This was not in a toy story but a supermarket…

But you had to look closer to see because of the letter fount it was really “Cali Girl Barbie” …….

I got the clear impression that the misleading letter fount/name combo was deliberate on Mattel's part to get the adult double take in the supermarket
