Title: Wow, a modest Barbie doll...

Not that this will induce me to buy Barbie dolls, but it is so nice to see one that is actually dressed!

Dolls are from the devil.

Avoid them.

That doll looks like Mary Ingalls.  Perhaps the devil is a fan of Little House on the Prairie. </s>

Yes, it's nice. Feminism at its best (women presented as scholarly and authoritative without losing their femininity).

I am really not trying to start another one of "those threads," but, I am pretty sure Hildegarde von Bingen, and Teresa of Avila were very feminine and scholarly in equal measure. Was the daughter of Thomas More not feminine? Our Lady was surely the most learned, meditative, and scholarly of all. One can be scholarly without hiking of to Uni and wasting many years of one's life.

The fact that Susan B. Anthony was adamantly pro-life makes me happy. The fems love her because she wanted the vote, and they think they made a girl-power Barbie; but they essentially just made a super pro-life Barbie doll. The irony is too fun.
