Bye Bye Barbie?

I am quite appalled by the bill introduced by WV delegate Jeff Eldridge.  HB 2918 states: It shall be unlawful in the state to sell "Barbie" dolls and other similar dolls that promote or influence girls to place an undue importance on physical beauty to the detriment of their intellectual and emotional development. 


What's next? No more fashion magazines? No more Disney Princesses?

Barbie just turned 50.  I don't think a tradition that has lasted for 50 years can be accused as the sole contributor to low self-esteem.  I say get over it and leave the toys alone.
