    Just a guess.... I don't think Barbie was originally meant to be an "ideal" so much as it was meant to be a miniature mannequin that little girls could dress up.

    If you look at fashion drawings, for example, they're never proportionate. I'm not sure why that is, but that's been the convention for years and years.

    That totally makes sense to me! Kind of like a runway model. Really tall and really thin. Like a hanger for the clothing.

    I had an epiphany a few years back. I was flipping through channels and some fashion show was on. My first reaction was "ugh, so skinny. Like a coat hanger. How could that possibly be considered attractive?" Then it hit me. That's precisely what she is. A walking coat hanger. Literally employed to hold up clothing for others to look at.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

I felt like this stuff will reach them no matter what I do so it makes more sense to let them see it (to some extent) and talk with them about it or guide them.
    My ex doesn't let them watch anything... I let them watch anything on Discovery, Food network, Animal Planet, etc. along with other random shows. TV is not a bad thing...

    I understand... there are a lot of really self conscious females with low self esteem... as a father I really am aware of that and do my best to instill esteem into my daughters.
