    Poor Ken. He has no balls. Just a weird looking lump.

    I hate Ken. He's done more damage to man kind than Pee Wee Herman, and Mattel just keeps on letting him get away with it. He's probably gonna try to run for Congress.

    Actually there have been studies on the proportions of Barbie and they are not realistic. The point is, if there are women out there built like her, they are in a very very small minority. Even her shoe size (3) could never support her height. And just like you compared your body to Barbie's, how many little girls growing up do the same? The point being wouldn't it be a better thing to produce a doll that was more "normal" than to go from an un-proportionate super thin and the other extreme of one that is overweight?

    Sales on "beer belly ken" are running brisk these parts.

    Yeah, but it's high density polyethylene. Rigid, ready and no condom necessary. Fat Barb will be on that like ugly on an ape.

    I don't think so. It's all about play and imagination. Most girls aren't going to be princesses either. I think the bigger problem is Hollywood culture and the fashion industry, which airbrushes and edits photos of their models, plastic surgery, breast implants, butt implants, etc., and actually does put pressure on women. These industries have actually been the cause of women dying from anorexia and other such extreme disorders. If you were to be upset with anything, that is where you should put the blame IMO.

    Edit* Most people (even children) realize that Barbie is NOT real and do not have expectations for her to be really life like IMO.

Got the brains of a turnip.
    Yep. Though I kind of thing that's what she likes about him. No matter how bad she is at anything, Ken will always be a bigger loser than she is. He's the ultimate metrosexual male per the feminist iconography.

    I agree with a lot of what you state, but unfortunately there is research suggesting Barbie may lead to heightened body dissatisfaction among young girls, unhealthy eating behaviors, and a desire to eat less in order to achieve a slim body even though she is just a "toy".

    He's certainly no threat to her, but he obviously can't do her any good at all. She deserves better, fat or not. Ken hides his crack and pipe at her house. Fact. When he gets busted, he's gonna claim she set him up. Somebody needs to take Ken out before he destroys whatever dignity is left to men everywhere.
