Stern lectures for the logically-challenged. Others have opinions, I have convictions.
They've just got to be kidding. Since when is the burkha "traditional dress"? Oh yeah, I remember...since I bunch of crazy people took control of the culture.
Give me a break! Unbelievable!!!
I wonder if it comes with a little bag of rocks for stoning -- or maybe a tiny knife for honor killing.That bare-faced one in the middle is just ASKING for it!
Does the Ken doll come with a detachable head?
Frankly, I'm not opposed to a Burkha Barbie. As one option in a plethora of possibilities, it makes sense. As the woman quoted in the article says, it's important for kids everywhere to have a toy that reflects their culture.Given the concerns I have for the direction this country is taking, though, I'd hate to think it's an indicator of where OUR culture may be going. I find that thought extremely troubling.I'm experiencing a little cultural problem of my own here in Central Texas. I went into Tractor Supply last week, and they were playing Spanish music. I went to bingo at the VFW last week, and everyone around us was speaking Spanish. I know Hispanic culture is pervasive in Texas, but I'm beginning to feel like a foreigner in my own country. Don't particularly care for that.
