People have been criticizing the Barbie doll for years, saying it sends the wrong message to girls. You have to be sexy-looking to attract male attention. Having large breasts is the ideal.

There's even a music video by Aqua with sexually suggestive lyrics

  • Girl: "You can ... undress me everywhere"
  • Boy: "You're my doll."
  • Girl: "Do whatever you please." [1]

This sounds less like guidance on how to have a good marriage than an invitation to fantasize about premarital sex.[1] Is this what we want for American adolescents?

There's a movie which asserts that Barbie is intended to be a role model for girls.

Notes

  1. "Hankie Pankie" is a euphemism for sexual activity
