radical barbies

Sounds like we need a road trip up to Sonoma, there are some alternative views of alternative Barbie by Deborah Colloti and others up in Rohnert Park:

But some Barbie products Mattel has no plans to release. There's Menstrual Leak Barb, with the unsightly mark of, well, an accident. Islamic Fundamentalist Barb is covered, head to toe, in black cloth. Pre-Face-Lift Barb has a wrinkled forehead and deep laugh lines framing her smile.

You might want to try to dig up a copy of BARBIE UNBOUND by Sarah Strohmeyer. It'll be under Humor. The satire is a little too pie-in-the-face, and thereby not as astringent as Islamic Barbie, but you do get Pregant Teen Barbie, Hot Flash Barbie, PMS Barbie, et al.
