I’m ecstatic that Matel included a bit in their Moschino Barbie ad. It’s a major step forward in dismantling gender stereotypes… So am I the only one bothered by the boy’s line being “Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” – while “fierce” is used by many, the line is also a gay stereotype. Thus, once again reestablishing gender roles (as gay men are stereotypically viewed as not masculine).
Hmm, troubled – but not willing to post this on FB. Thoughts?
