Nothing says Barbie like oppression. It looks like the world’s most famous plastic doll has been hit by the multiculturalism bug. Barbie has become a victim of sharia law and has been force to put on a burka. Since Barbie and Ken aren’t married, I wonder if she will be buried up to her head and stoned to death by the village elders?
From the DailyMail:
One of the world’s most famous children’s toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover – wearing a burkha.
Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby’s for Save The Children.
More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at the Salone dei Cinquecento, in Florence, Italy.
Makers Mattel are backing the exhibition which is the work of Italian designer Eliana Lorena.
The auction is part of Barbie celebrations for her 50th anniversary this year. The UK’s biggest Barbie fan Angela Ellis, 35, has a collection of more than 250 dolls.
The company director of Laird Assessors from The Wirral, Cheshire, said: ‘Bring it on Burkha Barbie, I think this is a great idea.
‘I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.
Nothing says oppression better than Barbie in a burkha.
