When Barbies are Outlawed, only Outlaws Will Have Barbies

A delegate to the West Virginia Legislature introduced a bill this week proposing a statewide ban on the sale of Barbie dolls. According to this article, the delegate maintains that the dolls can destroy a girl's self-image.

Another delegate registered his response by plopping a pink, sparkly Barbie on his desk during the legislative session.

Frankly, if this lawmaker thinks that all it takes to destroy a girl's self-image is an absurdly-proportioned plastic doll, he's underestimating America's girls.
