Of Course Barbie

Of course Barbie is in the 50th anniversary of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue and on a promotional cover wrap.

Let’s just stop pretending that the male gaze cares at all for the flesh and blood women with brains, hearts, and ambitions it regularly features.

They gave up on actually featuring swimsuits years ago.

The voyeurs who devour this issue already view the models as objects placed on the pages for their consumption and pleasure.

So let’s just go ahead and use an actual object, an actual plastic and vinyl doll.

Let’s do away with the ruse of women’s humanity once and for all, shall we?
