Holy crap - you know how I'm so long-winded? Well some of those questions require answers that are freaking essays. I'll try to be succinct (ha! who am I fooling) but right now I will supply with some outrage (or at least I think it will outrage you - oh gawd, I hope it does).
Apparently some brainfart in the UK made an online game aimed at tweens (hate the term but you know who I'm talking about) - and the game encourages the wee ones to compete with other tweens using an online doll. This doll can have breast enhancements, crash diets, and other little girl dreams!
OH BE STILL MY MOTHERLY HEART - NO SERIOUSLY - IT STOPPED WHEN I READ THIS ARTICLE.
And I quote from CNN International article I tripped upon:
Girls are encouraged to compete against each other to become the "hottest, coolest, most famous bimbo in the whole world."WHA???? WTF???? OMFG????
What kind of
Nicolas Jacquart, the 23-year-old Web designer from Tooting, south London, who created it was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: "It is not a bad influence for young children. They learn to take care of their bimbos. The missions and goals are morally sound and teach children about the real world."
Oh and get this - the game is called Miss Bimbo. Just f'ing wonderful.
We are going off-grid and moving to that cabin in the woods. See y'all later - I've got some butter to churn.
