“What kind of a message are we sending to little girls?” asks Mark Dice, founder of The Resistance, a Christian media watchdog group. “It's bad enough that young girls look up to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears as role models, and now they’re going to be playing with prostitute Barbie?”
“These dolls should be melted down and recycled,” insists Dice. “What’s next, a drug dealing Ken doll?”( http://www.theresistancemanifesto.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=73:prostitute-barbie-should-be-recalled&catid=44:press-releases&Itemid=82 )
I do respect people's opinion, everyone thinks differently, especially when dealing with raising children. But, this opinion is also what we call diversity. I also have to mention that "the Black Canary Barbie" is a collector edition Barbie item, so not only is this particular Barbie doll not marketed to children, but each parent must do their own judgment about buying any toy, we, as adults, cannot forever protect our kids from seeing or learning things that we don't want them to learn, we live in a society, where visual communication is really big, look at what is broadcast on TV, published in magazines, around outdoors, or even at a friend's house? Have you ever seen a Bratz doll? Well, as I said, everyone has a different opinion, but we can't control what ours kids will learn or see out there, but we can definitely teach them what is right and what is wrong.
