A student has made a life size Barbie to prove a point. She wants the world to know, especially young women, how unrealistic Barbie’s body is. If you’re American and you’re a girl, chances are your mom bought you a fair share of Barbies. Little did she know that she was, in the process, cultivating some nice body image issues and maybe some potential eating disorders. Yay for Barbie. I was one of those girls. I LOVED my Barbies. They were so preeeetttty. I wanted to be JUST like her! All little girls do. Unfortunately for them (and for me), that’s just not possible. Unless, of course, you’re a product of alien eugenics. Pam Anderson is probably the closest thing to a living Barbie except she’d need much, much longer legs and arms. Take a look at this girl’s creation. Barbie, in real life, not so appealing.
