    I'm kind of thinking the same thing. Frankly they both look weird

    My nearly 7 yo has about 8 or so dolls in various princesses and barbies and plays with them along with littlest pet shop, lego pirates.... I don't know what angry birds are. But I am sure she'd play with it too. In fact, I can see my kiddo playing with dols that present any kind of characters gleefully. Kids are inventive.

    Basically, the comparison here is a genetically advantageous rare female proportions and normalized proportions and how different they look. I don't think there is significantly more fat % on the average Barbie (maybe 5% difference) than on the model Barbie; it is about the skeleton and fat distribution. Cause we all know where Barbie carries her fat stores.

    I don't think the toy Barbie is actually realistic from a functional standpoint. Like your head would snap off with that skinny of a neck. I don't even think she represents "genetically gifted", she represents a toy made from a mold with plastic.

    Which is a big part of the problem in this day and age- we even photoshop the genetically gifted into stylized images of a human body. Barbie's proportions...are not realistic- the world record smallest waist is 21", 3" smaller than her waist. Plus her neck is ridiculous.

    So the comparison is a stylized toy to a toy with average proportions. No one has Barbies measurements. No one can look like Barbie. Just like no one can look like many magazine images, even the models themselves.

    Toys are fantasy, human fantasy is always hyperbole. Yeah Barbie would not be able to live in real life, same as the Hulk, Thor or whatever other action figure for little boys.

    The whole "if children cant see it, they wont develop these problems" approach is so incredibly retarded it blows my mind. Children are having sex at younger age? Better prevent them from seeing someone naked on tv, sure helped a lot.
    Someone went full retard and shot around at their schools? Better ban violent music/tv/games, that will help.

    I dunno, I see women once in a while with swan necks so Barbie's doesn't seem that unrealistic to me.
    Her waist-line does call for the rib removal.

    Overall Barbie the Toy is obviously a fantasy, but the fantasy more in terms of proportions/elongation than in the total fat %. I dunno, I might not be making any sense here. It's basically means to me that losing weight will not achieve the more appealing body on an average figure. The average Barbnie will always look short and stocky compared to the genetically rare version.

    Wasn't there a user here who claimed to be descended from Thor or something?
