The mighty Mattel toy company is embracing diversity, inclusion and feminism all rolled into one by releasing a hijab-clad Barbie doll, just in time for Christmas.
Hijab-Barbie is based on U.S. elite fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad who donned a hijab at the last Olympic Games.
Mattel holds her up as an inspiration for little girls, which is odd since she seldom misses an opportunity to bash America, primarily for what she considers to be anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S..
But because it’s 2017, diversity is the name of the game so Mattel’s going in a bold new direction — not with body-size diversity but with Islamic headwear.
The usual idiots quickly approved the move, including Philosopher-Queen Miley Cyrus but does she know what she’s signing up for? After all, in a fundamentalist Islamic regime, she couldn’t embrace her sexuality the way she does.
AlJazeera is giving hijab Barbie the thumbs-down saying in part, this “tokenistic inclusion” does more harm than good.
But who’s talking about the dark side of Islamic modesty clothing?
Is this really the sort of “diversity” the likes of Miley Cyrus are clamouring for?
