Trashing Barbie

Deadbarb_1I was slightly surprised to find an article on SKY about the intense hatred young girls have towards Barbie.  Girls between the ages of 7-11 regarded Ms Barbs as a "babyish" symbol. A study found the doll provoked rejection, hatred, and violence.  Some of the girl's favorite torture methods included:  removing hair, decapitation, burning, breaking and microwaving.  The girl's violent hatred was linked to the doll's "rich symbolism".
