Selling the "glamorous curves” of “popular” girls
One wonders what was in the stuff...
Fun stuff to examine. I am riveted by the modern Barbie saga (well, maybe not "riveted", but still interested). I grew up thinking Barbies were dumb, and then when I became a teenager (late 80s/early 90s), I saw the idealized form of the iconic doll as being among the most disgusting things in society. Yet there are Gen X women today who say that Barbies meant freedom and feminism to them. It's such a weird mishmash.
I discovered the secret to fast, easy weight gain in the '70s. Apparently I could've made a fortune if I'd been born a few decades earlier.
No wonder most women are basket cases trying to figure out what’s healthy, what size is good, how to be more beautiful, how to be less fat or thin, what clothes will help one look better, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.
