Good Housewife Barbie

You've got to love the Christian Right, if only because they've gotten incredibly amusing. Just about everything in this world is the tool of the devil. Their target this time: Barbie.

"The bitch has everything," its often said. Apparently, therein lies the problem. According to the Concerned Women of America, Barbie is leading girls down the road to hell. "It's really steering girls away from the idea of womanhood as predominantly – in terms of Christians – serving the Lord, getting married, having kids, building a home. You don't see any of that with Barbie - it's all about things."

I'm surprised that they didn't attack Barbie's decision to break up with long-time boyfriend, Ken. Of course, we in the gay community knew that the relationship was fishy from the get-go. Ken was homo-riffic. A Barbie & Ken marriage would have lasted about as long as Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney. To boot, the CWA contends that Barbie also contributes to "gender confusion."

No word yet on whether Mattel is coming out with a Maternity Barbie or Battered Spouse Barbie in order to placate the CWA.
