  • Mattel Releases New "Diversity Doll"!

    [QUOTE]It might be Barbie’s world, but the makers of the iconic toy have released four diverse new dolls, including figurines with vitiligo and no hair, to “better reflect the world” through body-positive representation in today’s increasingly diverse society.

    Parent company Mattel recently unveiled its 2020 Fashionistas line, featuring Barbie dolls with vitiligo and no hair, as well as a doll with dark skin and a golden prosthetic leg, and a Ken doll with long, flowing hair.

    Over the last five years, Mattel said they’ve evolved the popular Barbie Fashionistas line to better represent diversity and inclusivity in the toy aisle, introducing dolls with nine unique body types, 35 skin tones and 94 different hairstyles, Fox 32 reports.

    I think I am offended.
    I don't see a single doll to represent an aging white male with an expanding waist line and graying hair.

      I'm offended! There's not one "realistic" representation of a fat, ugly, nerd girl clutching a physics book and wearing horn rim glasses in the whole bunch.

          Why does everything have to be white? What downside is there in giving other people something they can identify with.

            Countries with Multiculturalism end up with no culture at all that we’re now living with the results of these days there’s not much courage but fear of not wanting to offend anyone that sounds even remotely offensive

              If they are going to be inclusive then every subset of humans must be included.
              Even if they are old white men.

                Who said everything has to be white?

                  I'm doubly offended, or. spkkn' CDN- I invented the doll at the center at the age of five when I plucked the hair out of one of my sisters barbies...

                      There's outrage when Levi signs someone black. There's outrage when a black female is cast for Ariel in the Little Mermaid movie. There's outrage when a movie is created with black superheroes. There's outrage when a black actor is even considered for a traditionally white role. There's outrage when black barbies are created. If it's not white, get ready for the complaints.

                          Hell of a good point. Want to start a class action law suit with me for a few hundred million?

                              One of my daughter, BabyGirl's, favorite dolls was her talking Erkil Doll. She used to abuse the heck out of it. Maybe I should have paid more attention when she was around her Mother?
