Don’t Just Blame Barbie.

 

From “Barbie Doll With Life-Sized Proportions is Ridiculous, Scary” by Whitney Jefferson on Jezebel:

“As a pop-cultural icon, Barbie is often used as art to express one’s own personal opinions and views. Girls see female body images everywhere today and it’s critical that parents and caregivers provide perspective on what they are seeing. It’s important to remember that Barbie is a doll who stands 11.5 inches tall and weights 7.25 ounces—she was never modeled on the proportions of a real person.”
