Barbie's Lesbian Sex Adventure Followed by Lawsuit?

An art exhibit in a small Brazilian town showing Barbie in intimate poses with another female has draw the ire of toy maker Mattel. The company says if artist Karin Schwarz doesn't remove the exhibit it will go to court, according to a Sao Paulo newspaper. (FYI - that photo you see on the left is not from the art exhibit)

Schwarz, though, isn't backing down.

"Barbie is exploited by Mattel. She wears a bikini, she shows off her belly, has big breasts, and even has a boyfriend," she told the Jornal de Sao Paulo newspaper.

Her exhibit, called 'Amazing Girls', is on display at a bar in the town of Curitiba.

A Brazilian spokesperson for Mattel said that "Barbie is a very proper lady and she is not happy about being portrayed as something that she isn't."

But Barbie is no friend of conservative Christians either. Earlier this year "Concerned Women for America" accused the doll, who is now 46, of promoting gender confusion among children.

I posted an article on my blog today 'Diary Of Barbie's Worst Enemy' about this, as I think this story is SHOCKING.

Whoever claimed that Barbie was a social symbol for narrow-minded, male-serving, white, heterosexual propoganda certainly hit the nail on the head!

What's funny is, my mom never bought me a Ken, and that pose doesn't look much different from what I did with my Barbies as a kid!
