A random collection of ideas and images I remember to post on tumblr

Barbie packaged

Some parent do the craziest things for their children. 

This one woman thinks that a Barbie Photo Booth idea is great for her daughters’ B-day. The truth is it’s so scary that someone would comfortably put their kids in a box to look like a new Barbie on the market.

Her call was met with this response from another woman showing off her slender fitting box design with plastic wrapping as well. See below.image

I get claustrophobic just looking at it.

It worries me that women would want to put their girls through this, but I don’t think these parents are paying much attention to the fact that Barbie is an exemplar of a type of girl and woman-hood that has become a real expectation of women… and that image of a girl packaged drives home the reality that girls and women are objects and products to be bought and sold… girl trade.

I can’t find much good to say about Barbie, but ladies, she doesn’t need to be in a box. Let the girls be free Barbies at least.

I can’t recall hearing parents who would put their boys in a spiderman box package. So why should the girls be all packed up and dolled up?

Future Oriental Octopus Clan… I like

I am yet to find someone who actually knows where I have come from. “Trinidad and Tobago” is just as confusing as “the Caribbean.” So I have become African, Jamaican, or American (which includes anywhere in the Americas, as it should)
