Here Is a Thing

It looks like Ken is getting a bit of a redesign or two.

On Tuesday, Barbie expanded its ‘Fashionistas’ line with 15 new Ken dolls, featuring three body types ― “slim,” “broad” and “original” ― as well as seven skin tones, eight hair colors and nine hair styles (like the man bun, cornrows and more).

Just like the newer Barbies, these dolls will feature different body types. Ken is no longer a cookie cutter doll; there will be different Kens with differing looks. No biggie, right?

Wrong. Apparently, some of these new Kens are totes gay:

Listen, everyone. This is important. There are people who want to change everything about America. Even the order of a proper, and healthy functional family. Those people who want to demoralize the family are perverts. Plain and simple. I respect them and everything, but they are perverts. They are a very small minority that look like they are much larger in their numbers than they are because of their status with the media and entertainment industry. I don’t believe that we should murder them like muslims do, but I also won’t ever pretend that they are normal minded people either. There are men, women, and then their are perverts who dress up like their opposite sex. They have absolutely miserable lives that they try to glamorize through movies and such. But they live miserable lives. I know that the world is going to get more wicked in the final days, and I do believe that we are in the final days, however, that does not mean that we stop from doing good. No. As Christians, we are to shine bright into the darkness and be the influence that changes people’s lives. Homosexuals are people, and they deserve to be respected like everyone else, but they are not family role models, and their behavior should never be condoned. -Calvin.

Yes, this is a real Facebook post. This guy is serious. Needless to say, I gave the guy a “Pride” on his thoughts and called it good. That would be more than enough to make his brain hurt. Because what I read there made mine hurt pretty damned badly, to tell you the truth.

Hey, Calvin? It’s just a doll. There’s nothing sinister here. But what do I know?

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
