Barbie vs. REAL Women

Does anyone else thing that there is something wrong with this picture?

There is just so much wrong with it.
I think so anyway.  
I hate the fact that a lot of people think that Barbie is the way we as women are supposed to look. 
Who in their right mind wants to look like this? 

Seriously?!?

I personally LOVE my curves and fuller frame. I LOVE that I am fit and healthy and not stick thin like that. Don’t even get me started about the eyes, or the fact that her waste is so TINY, what about the eyebrows? REALLY? What about the narrow face? Whos face is that narrow anyway? I mean yes some people have a narrow face but THAT narrow? 
I do have to say that the person who wrote this article is spot on!

I also feel that things like Barbie are what give little girls are warped outlook on life and how they are “supposed” to look. I mean what ever happened to just letting a little girl be a little girl and not have to worry about what they are eating? That is how little girls get eating disorders but that is a whole other post in and of itself. 

If I can just say to people now a days be healthy. Be fit. Be smart about what you are eating and you will be fine. Work out to be all of these things. Remember you do not need to look like Barbie to be beautiful. 
You ARE beautiful just the way you are!

    I agree!!
    this is so sad!!

    && yes, I try to the boys ALL the time NEVER call a girl fat because that will be the reason she has an eating disorder. It is so sad what our society has become!! 🙁

    LOVE this post! This is the BEST reminder ever!!
    I’m super, SUPER nervous to have be having a girl because I’m worried I won’t be able to teach her that she is beautiful and perfect just the way she is! If I have a hard time ignoring what “society” thinks is the “perfect” body, how will she? Thank goodness my mom taught me right, and my husband is so sweet and could care less about me having a “perfect” body. He’s going to be so helpful in teaching our baby girl how PERFECT she will be!!

    This is horrible to even think about! I love my body. I mean, I have gained 25 pounds in college but I don’t consider myself fat and I hate it when other people do or feel bad about their weight. It would be a better world if everyone loved themselves as they are and not wanted to be just like a Barbie!
    Thanks for sharing this!!
