    [h=1]Plus-size, double-chinned Barbie sparking controversial debate[/h] December 28, 2013 by Cheryl Carpenter Klimek



    [​IMG]



    A controversy is brewing over a request to remake Barbie in way contrary to the iconic image so many girls knew growing up.
    Plus-Size-Modeling.com is suggesting Mattel create a plus-size Barbie. While some say more realistic curves would be a better role model for girls, others say an overly large Barbie would be an unhealthy example.
    Plus Size Modeling conducted a poll on its Facebook page on Dec. 18 asking, “Should toy companies start making Plus Sized Barbie dolls?†In just under two weeks, a picture of the poll has received over 40,000 likes, 5,000 comments and 2,700 shares.
    “Sure, but Barbie doesn’t need a double chin,†one comment said. “You can be ‘plus size’ w/o the double chin. They could make a ‘thick’ Barbie.â€
    “Portraying Barbie as a realistic woman with real curves is a very good idea and would send the right message to young girls about self-esteem,†another comment said. “Making a morbidly obese Barbie is BAD!!â€
    Then there’s this opinion:
    “Okay I honestly don’t think how a Barbie looks affects a child’s self-esteem. When I was little I didn’t wanna look like Barbie. Lol. I didn’t think about my looks at all I just wanted to play…â€

    I'm assuming she is more willing to please her man, so I'm OK with it.

    When did obesity become acceptable? Are they going to make chain smoker Barbie or junkie Barbie next? Obesity is a real health issue that should be addressed and not accepted.

    I see so much of that on a daily basis where I work--woman who were once good looking hidden under 30-40 lbs. and they have no desire to lose it because they've already hooked a guy.

    That's the problem. Obesity is why our health care cost are through the roof.
