"Every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant."
The night is dark and full of terrors.
"I am bad, and that’s good,I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me."

If Barbie was an actual woman, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe.
• Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs.
• At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate.
• If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
• Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
i’m always reblogging this.
I’ve reblogged this a million times and will ALWAYS reblog it. She is so beautiful…It’s a great message.
I always reblog this when I see it on my dash.
“If Barbie was a real woman….”
well she’s not so stop passing off your insecurities on a fucking doll
if your kid is more influenced by a hunk of plastic than you then you’ve already fucked up as a parent and you might have to start saving money for a child psychologist (and maybe better parents)
I love how all these posts ignore the fact that Barbie has taught millions of girls that they can be anything they want to be. When I was a kid I didn’t care how Barbie looked, only that I could be a vet, or an artist, or a model, or a doctor, or a soldier, or a spy, or a fucking president.
If all you focus on is her body, you are missing they point of Barbie. The point of Barbie is in the slogan itself, “Be who you want to be.” That’s the message.
That’s the message you should teach your kids instead of telling them she’s too skinny or too big breasted, because that just show how much you don’t care about the potential only the physical attributes. It means you’re shallow and that attitude will damage your kid more than a Barbie in a pink dress with a stethoscope and white coat.
I was a big girl who loved Barbies. I didn’t dwell on her size, I wanted a Ken and her car and Ioved dressing her up.
Barbie is not real, she’s plastic. I have body and confidence issues from the real world with real people, not a doll that actually used to be my escape from things like that
thankkkkk you for pointing out the most important part: she’s a successful feminine woman regardless of size.
As a girl who had tons of Barbies as a kid, never once did I think that I wanted to look like Barbie or felt insecure about my size because of the doll. I had fun playing with my dolls. It was the bullying in school and the girls around me that made me feel insecure about my size and appearance. Real people. Not a toy. That toy actually made me happy and temporarily removed the pain I had grown to feel.
Imagine J.K. Rowling pulling a Beyoncé and releasing another Harry Potter book at midnight on July 31 with no warning can you even imagine the chaos that would ensue
