Barbie Poses Danger

Ok, I admit it. I used to play with Barbies when I was younger. I would cram them into Barbie cars, soak them in Barbie pools, and shove Barbie food down their Barbie throats. I also stripped them naked and painted boobs onto them with nail polish. That, however, is a totally different story. The point of my random rant? Barbies are a normal part of growing up in the United States. Every little girl has one, wants one, or ripped the head off of one at some point in their life. Iran, on the other hand, sees Barbie as more of a WMD.

“The irregular importation of such toys, which unfortunately arrive through unofficial sources and smuggling, is destructive culturally and a social danger,” Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi wrote in a letter to Parviz Davoudi, Iran’s vice-president.

“The appearance of personalities such as Barbie, Batman, Spiderman and Harry Potter and… computer games and movies are all a danger warning to the officials in the cultural arena.”

What I want to know is how the hell Barbie is making it over to Iran to begin with? Makeup and revealing clothing tend to be a no-no in Iranian culture. Somehow I doubt Barbie has enough pull to change all the little dark haired children of Iran into bleached blondes that crave breast implants and $5,000 hand bags to shove their lap dogs in.

Granted, if I had my own country… I wouldn’t let Barbie in either.
