The radicals are at it again. Those Columbian feminazis. Trying to unseat Barbie and make her life harder. As if her problems with Ken are not enough. They are coming up with a new politically correct doll. Yeees, another one. This one is, how should I put it, "sexual." As in letting it all hang out. And those "functional breasts!!" Can you believe it? I mean they are not just things you drewl at. No, no. You actually do things with them and babies. Yuck! But the worst thing about this sordid affair is that thing down under. These people are actually showing it. No, I'm not talking about Australia. Sorry, I can't say the word. I'm blushing just thinking about it. Let me see if I can say it without saying it: it's when a woman doesn't have a Brazilian waxing! Got it?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, read on:
"Amamanta, Spanish for breastfeeding, is a blend of two words that mean love and protection. It is also the name of a doll family whose members may appeal to holiday shoppers looking beyond the latest Barbie or Bratz doll for a present that's non-hazardous to body image and can also educate about how babies are made, born and nurtured. Each 16-inch cloth adult Amamanta doll has genitals and pubic hair, and the mother doll features breasts that can be snapped onto the baby doll's mouth to help reinforce the importance of breastfeeding. "I wish children to be happy and grow with the idea that sexuality is important and is part of our lives," says Margarita Maria Mesa Leal, owner of the company that makes the dolls. Leal hand sews dolls herself, in addition to employing 27 local women in Medellin, Colombia, all of them mothers."
Not everyone is buying.
"In fact, as Women's eNews was interviewing Morales, at a coffee shop on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, he pulled out an Amamanta Family of dolls to show the way in which a baby can be "born" from the mother's stomach and then snapped onto a breast to simulate breastfeeding. His demonstration offended a man at a nearby table who angrily asked, "Do you mind?"
An aside: I would buy the doll even if only to spite this kind of man. Would you buy it?
