“Barbie is so fierce!” boy plays with BARBIE in commercial

Rebel Staff
 

The death of masculinity continues.

The bad news? A boy has starred in a Barbie commercial. The worse news? This wasn't in Sweden – where gender-neutrality has reached ridiculous levels of absurdity.

The new “Moschino Barbie” is apparently a big hit, selling out mere hours after launching.

The doll's new commercial features a couple of girls playing with the doll and an overly flamboyant boy who screams “Moschino Barbie is so fierce” before carrying the doll's purse with his fingers.

 

 


Later on in the ad, the doll's phone 'rings'. The boy answers it saying “it's for you, Moschino Barbie” before winking at the camera.

Please, for the love of God, before it's too late, someone get this kid some action figures or something! Preferably nothing from He-Man.

" That is straight out-and-out genetics."

Actually, it’s not genetics. The case with genetics is not so clear cut. Individuals with androgen insensitivity are genetically male but develop into very feminine-appearing intersex individuals. Sometimes the development process misfires and you get genetically normal individuals with, again, intersex traits that can appear male, female, or somewhere in between. Further, the connection between mental state is even more flexible than that of physical development and genetic, and sexual preference even moreso. Given how sloppy the process is (and that this is one of the few processes where those developmental miscues aren’t rapidly lethal/spontaneously terminated), it’s amazing we get anywhere near the ~80% rate of heterosexual, cis-gendered individuals that you can observe in the real world.

All in all, the boys-are-boys and girls-are-girls, fully dichotomous description is not valid when dealing with an end-weighted continuum. Shades of grey are not enormously common, but they’re common enough to need acknowledgement.

Liza,

I see that you are proud by your ignorance.

Its clear to everyone, who has the problem, and the problem is all yours Michael Mann. You wouldn’t know a fact if it came up and kissed you on your mouth. You know how you can’t fix stupid? Well you can’t fix cognitive dissidence either. Its really too bad ‘science’ is used, and abused as the catch all word for the low info Marxists who try and justify their ridiculous agenda with its overuse.

Peter,

So you choose to ignore science and fact for “traditions”?

Sounds to me like you have a bigger problem that you don’t want to admit.

Drew said, “Yeah masculinity is dead in progressives, take SEAN,BRAD,MIKE, and the other trolls for an example, the second some feminazi speaks they shut up and listen and do as they are ordered.”

Yea I agree, and you can also tell by their comments they are more than okay with boys perusing “gender identification” and letting the child decide whether he/she is male, female, or any of the other so called “gender identities”.

I am traditional in that if a person is born male, they are male. If they are born female, then they are female. Only two genders, and only two gender identities. Period.

And you know something, that is not even a religious thing. That is straight out-and-out genetics.

@ Bravo

“Actually I like the difference between boys and girls – unfortunately we are creating a fuzzy line between them and encouraging them to cross over that line.”
Yes there are differences Bravo, women tend to be soft in the right places while men tend to think with the wrong head – just ribbing Bravo ;)

There are differences and its the differences that makes the two require each other – two halves of a whole. We both agree on the fact that schools, media, manufacturers, and the government now tell children as well as adults how to live, think, etc. blurring lines.

I took offence at your comment “Tell boys they are special”
Neither a boy nor a girl is more special than the other one. A boy is not better (special) because he is male, both are equal in the eyes of the Lord. The notion that a male is superior and is above a female in worth is from the actual patriarchal society that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam were born of.

“No metrosexuals, homosexuals, “unsure who they are” and more in this house – simply because we allowed them to be who they wanted to be – and also made a point to point out that boys and girls ARE different. And then reinforcing – be damned proud of that difference.”
You are mixing cause and effect into one statement. We technically are on the same page Bravo, we just disagree about a few details. Toys for example.

Telling a girl she can ONLY play with dolls and have tea parties, that’s right up there with “you don’t need an education because you will be just a housewife, don’t think but rather let your man think for you, ugh you Jane me Tarzan”. My spirit would have been crushed if I was forced to play house with dolls and playing girlie girlie. Kids must be given the freedom to find themselves, to grow, to find their strengths and weaknesses. Guidance from role models are a definite must – that’s where mom and dad are vital, good parents guide not force. When you get into that identity and gender crisis stuff we are onto a different topic all together from what I objected to in your post. To let you know I do disagree with that entire concept which apparently makes me a dinosaur too.

“For the population of this country to survive each woman need to have more than two kids – otherwise we bring in slammers to replace you and me. And they need to learn to be proud of being male or female – and they need to be encouraged to do those things – and that does not happen today.”
I do not think a woman should be forced into having children. Everything in God’s timing not man’s.

“I am not afraid to be a man – polite and mannerly and married for many years to the best wife out there “
My husband would beg to differ, he says he’s married to the best wife. I know another person that says his wife is the best. We all think that when we are in a union that was blessed by God.

“I think you would actually want me for a neighbour if you knew me, but I am who I am – I am damned proud of it and I earned all of it.”
From your postings it would make for interesting conversations over the fence or coffee, I’d probably feel safer considering your background (military). You don’t watch your Ps and Qs, you come across very gruff at times but under all that grizzle you can see a good and caring soul. Yes, I probably would like to have you as a neighbor Bravo.

It is a child’s autonomy I am concerned about, not whether or not the odd boy plays with Barbies past kindergarten, or many girls prefer baseball to Barbies. I just take exception and offence to adults attempts to push an agenda on small children under the guise of being in the best interest of the child . Marketers, educators, governments, should ‘leave those kids alone’.

Look, my dad took me hiking, bird watching and on nature trails all the time…Do you suggest he was trying to MASCULINIZE ME? Lots of fathers take their daughters hunting and fishing with them…is this a conspiracy to make them into sons? When I preferred these activities plus reading, dreaming about becoming an arctic explorer, sketching and a strong desire to be a sailor to playing with dolls and learning to sew and knit was this because my parents wanted me to be a boy? Did this make me masculine?….NOT A BIT!…might have actually made me eventually want to be more feminine, having got that stuff out of my system….you CANNOT FEMINIZE MEN OR MASCULINIZE WOMEN unless they want this…Give up on your angst about “Feminazis and the feminization of the modern male”…HOW MANY OF YOU HAS IT WORKED ON SO FAR, EH? If anything it has made you phobic and fixated…it has not made you female…actually guys you need to CONSENT to surgery for this…and even then what can someone else do to you if you are a man at heart… THIS IS JUST PLAIN SILLY!…and boys aren’t supposed to be silly, are they☺

We could raise children to a certain age, unknown, without any gender identity. Keep them guessing whether they are boys or girls for as long as possible will ensure a healthy and happy environment

“I have the want.” should read “I have never had the want.”

Guess I should proof read.
commented 2015-11-17 19:57:26 -0500
How times have changed. When I was young, boys never played with dolls of any sort, and to be quite frank, I have the want. I did like my Mechano set, though, pulling apart all sort of stuff and most often could not get it back together the same way … much to my parent’s consternation.

It is probably because of the way I was raised, but I get uncomfortable seeing boys play with dolls of any type. I guess we are all products of our upbringing.
commented 2015-11-17 19:50:02 -0500
I said, ‘Parents, and marketers really need to stay out of it.’

I forgot to add……. educators, unions, provincial governments, and any other group promoting the restructuring and redefinition, (read destruction) of family values. Including the promotion of gender identity confusion, or gender ‘fluidity’ as they so fondly call it. Kids can figure all of that stuff out and should be left to do so on their own.

Having said that I doubt we’ll see more ads like this as it will probably fail as a marketing strategy. Most boys don’t play with dolls past 4 or 5 if at all. Except of course for GI Joe, or superhero characters, which are a different category from Barbie’s or baby dolls.
Marketers are opportunists, and have no social conscience or compass. That ad is an embarrassment.

There’s a line spoken by Paul Newman in Slap Shot that comes to mind. Real men will know the one I’m referring to.

When I was a kid I played with my brother’s toys more than girlie toys. We built ships, a Saturn rocket, raced Hot Wheels, put together train sets etc. I DID have a Barbie though and liked Barbie because, let’s face it; she had a car, a boat, a great apartment, lots of clothes and great hair. She also dated my brother’s G.I Joe, not Ken. Ken had plastic hair, no genitals and looked like he voted Liberal. G.I Joe had no genitals either, but at least he looked like he did.

This article is so cute! My neighbours’ boy loves to wear girly things and he plays with barbies too. There is nothing wrong with expanding one’s gender identity, and the earlier the better. Boys should be able to wear pink and get in touch with their feminine sides!
commented 2015-11-17 17:34:44 -0500
The kid was only playing with Barbie because he had the hots for the little girl. You think kids are stupid, or something?
commented 2015-11-17 17:27:43 -0500
Good point Deborah. Parents, and marketers really need to stay out of it.
How many little boys would prefer to sit with the little girls and play Barbie? Seriously, I will never believe very bloody many would or do.
They are not wired that way.
That is not to say that girls can’t be competitive and boys somewhat nurturing, and protective, but I hazard to guess that most women like manly men.
Cause we’re wired that way.

Feminazis and the feminization of the modern male – lots of studies and articles – and yes I am proud to be an old fashioned male – not many around – but we are the men who built this part of the world – and the girly men are allowing it to be torn down.

Literally thousands of pages on what I am talking about. And most men will not speak up or will lie down and follow the party line to avoid any conflict.

Google this: “feminization of the modern male”

A few articles for those who want to read and then deny – at least you MIGHT honestly (most will not – as simple continuation of that feminization of the modern man) look at the other side of the modern day effeminate man.

Diss me if you wish – but there is great truth to what I say and I am not alone in saying it.

Am off and on the road – have to go to work – I will be curious to see how many want to bad mouth me when I return – perhaps one man might stand up – but I do not have a lot of hope for that in this group judging from the responses so far.

Sign me off as proud to be a real man. Men – Toss your panties and join me. But only if you dare. ;-)

I have to laugh at these politically correct mothers, when it comes to their sons. A friend was so against guns, that she wouldn’t allow her son to have even a water gun. One day she took her kids shopping, and she told the boy he couldn’t have a gun, but that he could have any other toy. So this little boy pointed to a blow dryer, and though his mother thought it an odd request for a toy, she bought it. When they got home, the little boy ripped off the packaging, and proceeded to use the blow dryer as a toy gun. I think that we need to allow our children the freedom to play and pretend all they want as children. Because if you try to hard to mold them a certain way, you may never be able to reach them when they are adults, because they may resent you for being overbearing!

@ Hyacinth

Actually I like the difference between boys and girls – unfortunately we are creating a fuzzy line between them and encouraging them to cross over that line. And yes, toys are part of that – you disagree and so be it.

Too bad you feel the way you do however I must say some things.

My daughters love me and know they are women through and through raising their children.

My sons love me and are real men doing a man’s job including raising their children.

No metrosexuals, homosexuals, “unsure who they are” and more in this house – simply because we allowed them to be who they wanted to be – and also made a point to point out that boys and girls ARE different. And then reinforcing – be damned proud of that difference.

If you did not like it then you gave me the response I expected from many – but not you – too bad you took offense to something that has only changed in the last generation – being old fashioned does not go out of style. However encouraging boys to be girly is the way it is today. No wrestling, no tag, no getting dirty, no scrapping in the school yard, no one wins anymore in sports at school, and more.

So – it used to be – boys grow up to be men and they had dicks – so they should be doing “little man things” – girls grow up to be women – and they have a uterus – while they can do anything they want when they are children – there are some things that only they can do – and fortunately one of them is having children – unfortunately something that far too many either do not do or do not do enough.

Far better today that they are a professional whatever. And when they hit 40 they have one kid – or they have a couple when they are younger and let society raise them.

If that makes me a sexist bastard then so be it – we need more of them – sexist bastards on both sides of the gender fence – otherwise we are doomed.

For the population of this country to survive each woman need to have more than two kids – otherwise we bring in slammers to replace you and me. And they need to learn to be proud of being male or female – and they need to be encouraged to do those things – and that does not happen today.

And both sides of that gender fence need to be proud of that – and far too many despise people who think like that.

And it has lead to our downfall in many ways.

Hell we even now have a “Who the hell am I?” toilets in schools and businesses.

You might not like it and many will not – but that is the truth – yeah as I see it I know – but I know I am not alone. Most men are simply too cowardly to say it today.

I am not afraid to be a man – polite and mannerly and married for many years to the best wife out there – who by the way is a boss in her own right and runs a multi-million dollar a year business – but I am unafraid to speak my mind – and in this day and age many men are afraid to be a man – because of response like I knew I would receive. Many, many men have become cowards and if you were to be honest you would agree with that – be that as it may the choice is yours on that one.

I think you would actually want me for a neighbour if you knew me, but I am who I am – I am damned proud of it and I earned all of it.

Have a nice day Hyacinth

Judy – Well said, as a role model parents need to be stable and allow their children to learn to be confident stable adults.
