The ugly feminist alternative to Barbie.

Feminists have long complained about the unrealistic proportions of Barbie dolls, and Lammily was introduced to offer girls a realistic doll to play with. Now Lammily doll owners can make their feminist dolls even uglier, with Lammily Marks:

Includes:

Cellulite, Stretch marks, Freckles, Acne, Glasses, Blushing, Adhesive bandages, Moles, Temporary Tattoo, Stitches, Scrapes & Scratches, Bruises, Cast, Scars, Mosquito Bites, Grass and Dirt Stains

See the Huffington Post write up on the topic, including pictures.  My personal favorite is the last picture, where Lammily is dressed in a flannel shirt and sensible shoes.  Add a prominent scar, a tramp stamp, stretch marks, cellulite, a few moles, acne, and some stitches and she is every little girl’s dream doll.

    So which one is selling better? If the government doesn’t interfere, the market will determine which one young girls like better and that one will succeed. I remember something like this coming out in the 80’s. Where is that doll now . . . dustbin of history.

    Having seen some “Wal-Mart shoppers” recently, the doll is way too thin to be the average American young lady. The doll needs collops of fat that jiggle as the doll is moved.

    While Barbie continues to be who she is Lammily dolls are there to tell her that it is not okay to look the way she does, like what she does or to even do what she does because of reasons in which they try to justify. Barbie does her best to be a positive role model not by saying you should be like her but by giving children the options to make their Barbie who they want her to be not by being handed a doll that has been branded as average in areas in which children should not even be concerned about. Thus bringing us to our next issue regarding Lammily dolls.

    Lammily dolls are shoving adult issues in children’s faces. While Barbie stands with all other dolls on the shelve and lets the child be the creative mind behind who that dolls is; Lammily markets itself as being a girl of average weight, with average career options and an average life style. Childs are thinkers and they are learning from the world around them. A Lammily doll that tells them it’s okay to be their weight when their weight was never a thought in their mind is not helpful, a doll that tells them someday they will have stretch marks dose not teach them it makes them think thoughts a kid shouldn’t have to be concerned about.

  12. Feminine But Not Feminist says:

    Huh. Little girls don’t get body image issues from playing with Barbies. By the time we start caring what our bodies look like, we’ve long since stopped playing with them. While I’m all for making sure a girl understands that she doesn’t need to be ashamed of the fact that she doesn’t have DD sized breasts while her waist is a size zero (which, for those with such a tiny waist, every other body part is more than likely to also be tiny, unless the genetic lottery was hit. Trust me, as a size 3-4 -depending on the brand- I know how that goes), I would say it’s completely pointless to do it by messing with Barbie. And taking it way too far by adding in the tramp stamps and all that other nonsense is gonna do more harm than good (if any kid actually wants to play with it, which I highly doubt). I predict this stupid doll will be a flop.

    What’s funny about this sort of stuff is that it could be avoided altogether if we just switched back to the traditional toy of young girls everywhere: a baby doll. Its looks don’t matter, because its whole point is to be taken care of, not to be an egotistical fantasy of accessorizing, which is all Barbie is. Indeed, the shift to Barbie is a great feminist move: stop caring about baby and focus on your career, possessions, and maybe Ken if you decide to get a man as yet another accessory.

    But if we shift back to the baby doll, all hell will break loose, because it means encouraging the maternal impulse of young girls.

    Telling every little boy that they should play accountants and tax evaders, or office clerk and lawn care dude would be the equivalent of these dolls.

    So when are men going to realise this doll wasnt created by feminism

    It was created by puritan women … using the myth of purity to cover up their uselessness to society

    Of course women having to excel & compete, is a threat to a womans mating strategy of extracting huge amounts of cash & a free house & the beta bux for free, from hapless retarded men

    While claiming purity & virginity to cover up the massive theft from men

    Ironically if men cut off the massive transferrence of cash to women, women would be a hundred times more sane & normal, then the batshit insane stayathome mom or housewife we have today …

    A man went to the toy store & asked about Barbies for his daughter. The clerk said “We have several models: Work Out, Shopping, Beach, Disco, & Skater Barbie for $19.95 each and we have Divorced Barbie for $265.95.”

    The man said “What in the hell is a Divorced Barbie for $265.95?, That’s crazy! I must have misunderstood.”

    I was expecting your link to be utterly horrible, but this closing paragraph is actually good :

    Take a look at the current crop of female CEOs: A lot of them have husbands who don’t work. Xerox CEO Ursula Burns took a page out of Hirshman’s book and joked at a 2013 conference, “The secret [to success] is to marry someone 20 years older.” Her husband retired as she was hitting her career stride, allowing him to take primary responsibility for their kids. If becoming a CEO and having a family is what you desire, you might want to take that advice.

    Hey, that is not bad advice. 20 years apart means their career peaks are at different times, and their marriage is at equitable SMV value as per Rollo’s chart.

    The article is from Slate, so it can be assumed to be (mostly?) terrible.

    As for the closing paragraph – well, there are a lot of details missing (e.g. if they get married at 35 and 55). If it was 18 and 38 (give or take), things could work just fine (the wife has, let’s say, 15 years to get a degree and maybe shift to part-time work). It avoids some of the usual pitfalls (e.g. major causes of divorce: wife making more than husband, wife having higher SES, etc). The husband is usually at peak SES at around 40 (and his sexual drive will be more in line with his wife). The major downside is the husband having to wait until 40 to get married.

    TFH seems to be going Feminist – his obsession with forty-year old career bitches with trophy chlidren; that apart from his obsession with Rotherham. I had a word with my Bangla neighbour – we are both fluent, though sadly, in different languages – and I was keen to ask his opinion (careful as I was to hide away my copy of The Satanic Verses) but thought the better of it, as I have so far failed to observe even one white-slut-teenager come up the stairs, though I did once catch sight of his aged mother – off to Friday prayers at the Mosque – whom he clearly cares for. Model neighbours it has to be said and infinitely preferable to the part-time MILF prostitute with a liking for young men who formerly occupied the apartment.

    It’ll soon be Panto season (which i know you don’t have) but I cannot quite see Cinderella being kitted out with Stretch-marks, Tats and Cellulite – that must surely be reserved entirely to the two ugly sisters. Boys like to take things to pieces to see how they work; girls like to emulate, at least so far as I can observe; so I doubt that the Lammily dolls will be a great success. Still, we will doubtless learn later that they have been a great success in their class. Whatever happened to Hula-hoops – girls used to enjoy that, and I to watch – Bouncy balls and Rubic’s Cubes?

    True, but it’s a more likely scenario, really, than the Hirshman idea of women marrying peer-age men who are “below” them. There are a handful of women who will sign up for that (natural dominatrix type personas, of whom there are few among women), but most won’t because not attracted to that in a man. Marrying the much older man who is “done with his career”, or close to it, does not violate hypergamy in the same way, and will be more attractive to more women than marrying down will be. However, it’s still a limited pool. In sexual terms, most women are really not that attracted to men who are that much older than they are (see OKC results), and so most will prefer peer-age (roughly) marriages to similarly credentialed men — which, as it happens, is *exactly* what we see the most of. And these marriages are either egalitarian (a minority of them are truly egalitarian, but I have seen them, and it retards both careers due to limits placed on both spouses), or they decide to emphasize one career over the other, to “min/max” their lives, so to speak. The latter is more common than the former overall when there is more money on the table to be had, although I’ve known quite a few of the former as well. Both are much more common than either the marrying peer age but “down” in terms of career/money or the marrying a guy close to being done with his career.

    Bottom line: women have choices to make here, and they don’t like the choices. Well, that’s life. The most successful ones accept that there are tradeoffs and accept the tradeoffs. I am sure that the woman marrying a man who is +20 is more sexually attracted to men her own age and younger, but she trades that off for the ability to mix career success and kids in a way that marrying a peer age man would make unlikely. She doesn’t seem bitter about it, because she accepts that she can’t have it all. The women who are bitter are the ones who don’t accept the trade-offs and are angry that they can’t have it all. In a way, they are angry at themselves and their own preferences and how their attraction works as much as they are about anything extrinsic.

    “In a way, they are angry at themselves and their own preferences and how their attraction works as much as they are about anything extrinsic.”

    No, I think at this point they are angry at outdated societal norms still being enforced by solipsistic Boomers that don’t accord them the proper social standing for making what is for the majority of women the optimal choice: to pair off with a promising young man in her early twenties and work together with him to build up his career and their family life together.

    A 34″ waist isn’t healthy on a 19-year-old girl who is 5’4″ tall. Hell, I have a 32″ waist and I’m a 6’0″, 195 lb, 39-year-old man!

    A girl whose waist is already that big at such a young age is on her way to obesity, so if that’s average, I guess that explains a lot.

    A comment on the comment someone posted about women preferring men their own age.

    In older times, affluent families did not view their children as educated until they lived in a totally different culture for at least a couple years. 100 years ago, it might be Germany, or France and Germany with trips to the other Germanic nations. This was because people do not understand their own culture until they learn in another culture which parts of their own culture are unique to their own culture, and not universally true.

    In the USA, much of relations between men and women are unique to our own culture, heh, heh.

    One of the most important things I learned about Mexican culture, thus about USA culture, in recent years was that in Mexico they respect old men. Once I understood this, I also understood that in the USA, we HATE old men. Even old men in the USA hate old men.

    I once told my wife’s best friend that in the USA they call old men, “old farts.” She looked like she wanted to vomit. If one of her children referred to an old man as an old fart, he would probably suffer serious injuries.

    When women are raised in a society which respects old men, a higher percentage of young women have little problem marrying older men.

    When I first moved to this village, the First Wave as I called them, were the low life gold diggers we find so common everywhere. I paid them no attention at all.

    When I was 64, a 14 year old family friend fell head over heels in love with me. Scared me half to death. I talked to my best friend, an educated woman in her late 50’s. She told me this was not uncommon; in fact she had done the same thing at the same age. Older men who are vigorous and not too obese, and educated, and who treat women with respect (a rarity in much of Mexico) are actually very attractive to young women. She told me just treat her as you always have, and she will outgrow it, but she will never forget you. And, she has learned what sort of man she wants to marry, instead of an alpha bum. Well, she is engaged to a man with a degree…

    Since then, I have been hit on by several Early Twenties whom I knew well enough to know it was not gold-digging. I have a routine. I act stupid like I don’t know what they are saying, and eventually they go away. Heh, heh.

    I don’t know what percentage of young women actually PREFER older men, as opposed to “will in desperation accept an older mate.” In my village I believe it to be around 5%, more or less. I can only guess, since this is the only other culture I have ever lived in, that this 5% may be a norm among women everywhere. If it is not, then the actual percentage is more likely to be higher rather than lower.

    Though your cultural conditioning prevents you from seeing this, the nature of hypergamy is such that vigorous, healthy older men of education and affluence are the peak of hypergamy unless women are conditioned differently as they are in the USA.

    A reminder that there are two expressions of hypergamy. Most of us think of gold-diggers, of course. But there are also many women who actually find an affluent man much more attractive then he is. Women who say how handsome Donald Trump is are what I am talking about. Which is probably where the young women who hit on me are found.

    In the US, the hatred for old men is so blatant that even if a young woman were interested in an older man, she knows it will be absolute Hell if she makes a move. So, we seldom ever see it at all. Thus falsely assuming no woman likes older educated men who treat them well.

    Remember when a regular here said if an older man, even one thirty or forty years younger than I am, came around his daughter, he would shoot him? I have developed enough prejudice against our “it takes one to know one” bozo that I assume it was him. But, clearly, that may be wrong. In any case, that is what I am talking about.

    In any case, an aggressive, hard driving career woman isn’t being harmed that much by marrying a successful twenty years older man, whether when she is 18 or 28. It is all in your imagination as a victim of AW insanity.

    We in the manosphere keep saying that we don’t want the wives to let themselves go, to stay thin and pretty, to work out, to do whatever. But that doesn’t mean we want to be married to Barbie. We are not interested in women whose sole focus is their looks and their materialism. We want to marry a pretty wife who is focused on being a great mom. We want to marry Ann Duncan from Good Luck Charlie, not Barbie.

    Yes, and that was the point I was trying to make with my last comment. While Barbie looks and a Barbie figure are all well and good, if that’s ALL a woman has going for her, then any man who wifes her up is going to find her to be more of a millstone around his neck than a mate who is a helpmeet. This usually becomes obvious well before the word “marriage” is even a consideration, but many men deliberately and knowingly ognore the “WARNING: SELFISH BIMBITCH ALERT!” red flags.

    imho, Barbie is the typical modern American woman.

    She certainly has checked off all the feminist check boxes:

    Exciting career-check (notice there’s no salesgirl Barbie).
    Independent–check.
    Has avoided marriage and motherhood–check.
    Has a guy for fun but not commitment–check.
    No influence of God in her life–check.
    Can do anything a man can do–check (soldier, astronaut, fireman).

    You can make the argument that Barbie has contributed as much to “you go girl” as anything, and has influenced countless young girls to forgo marriage and family to pursue their dream.

Who gives a %$(# about the sexual preferences of anyone in that book? She introduced sexuality into a children book to get social millage from her peers. Modern adults really suck and just cannot leave well enough alone and let children worry about children stuff.

    Lammily looks retarded, and her proportions are all wrong. She may be average but she is average and athletic – like a softball player. The average 19 yr old looks more flabby and way worse than that.

    My personal favorite thing about this is the similarity in facial features between the creator and the doll, have a look at the pictures on the linked page (https://lammily.com/about/). This doll is modeled after the gender ambiguous picture at the bottom. I was going to leave that famous quote about how feminist activity almost always a cry for, come the revolution, the feminist herself to be percieved as hotter, and point out that it’s really just the creator trying to be idealized by young girls, but then I noticed that it is a guy. This adds a whole new level of weirdness to the situation.

  59. I don’t understand why conservatives, and Christian conservatives in particular, don’t campaign against sperm banks.

    Its probably because a sperm bank (in and of itself) offers nothing other than pro-creation. Christian conservatives have more than enough to campaign against (like what the President will be doing by executive order tonight) than to campaign against sperm banks.

    What do you mean by “campaign against”? Are you referring to an effort to make sperm banks illegal?

    I like the comment about how we should go back to giving little girls baby dolls to play with instead of Barbies. If I’m fortunate enough to have daughters, that’s what they’re getting. I had plenty of both when I was a kid, but liked the baby dolls better, and only played with the Barbies when playing with cousins, who preferred the Barbies.

    @ innocentbystanderboston

    What’s the president doing by executive order tonight? The way you talk about how we should be against whatever it is makes it sound really bad. I mean I’m not surprised, but I’m a bit concerned now. And yes I know, I live under a rock.

    Oh. Ugh. I never felt like I had any say in anything before anyway, but still, that doesn’t sound good. Illegal immigrants only take from the system and give nothing back, so government handouts will likely increase quite a bit more because of that. (Note: I’m not referring to legal immigrants that follow the rules and do things the correct way and actually contribute to society)

    It’s safe to say that any regular reader of this blog has no friend in the USA, its laws, or its government.

    The USA is the place that radical feminism, and the hatred of men, was incubated and spread throughout the world. In no other country are so many men routinely stripped of all their possessions, without trial, forced to pay the kidnappers of their children at gunpoint and to live as slaves. (Name me a European country that jails poor men for falling behind in overly-generous alimony payments… That’s right, you can’t).

    Best thing I could suggest to men (specifically you religious family men) is to ignore whatever President Doofus says, and continue to build up your own families and local communities (by that I mean, other solid people who live nearby). You should consider yourselves aliens in a hostile country, rather than citizens who want to “conserve” the feminist structure that is now in place. It’s your enemy, not your friend.

    Borders don’t mean anything anyway. Men should start looking at moving to places where they get more respect, and colonize these other areas, taking their money and labor power with them.

    Men know what is “hot” and respond to it – and fat, with cellulite, isn’t hot… Just the opposite – it’ll make a guy throw-up a little in his mouth. So you can give girls fat dolls all you want – they will still be trying to lose weight and get into those size 0 jeans. Wanna know why? They want to be f**ked till they can’t walk by the hot guys. So if it makes you feel good to give them fat dolls, be my guest. I’ll still be nailing the hot chicks – and the reason is simple. Those are the ones that turn me on…

    IMHO very well said. It’s as though you were reading my mind.

    The American culture has become a toxic cesspool of immorality, and those in power are indeed pushing secular evils into other parts of the world in the name of feminism and other types of “humanities”. Not that those people were without evils of their own, but the wickedness being promoted now is literally anti-male and family destroying. The founding fathers would not even recognize this country were they to return for a brief visit. It’s been said that they would start another revolution. I wonder what would be said of the despotism of the petticoat after witnessing a typical family court proceeding.

    God have mercy on us, because we, as a nation, have brought this upon ourselves.

    Not all of them are ball-busting. Mine loves the opportunity to be feminine for a change when she gets home. Obv, that takes a man willing to be masculine, which she had trouble finding.

    “At least make an effort to influence people not to participate in them.

    You make a good point, but considering that the vast majority of out-of-wedlock births happen the old fashioned way, it may be wiser to expend ones resources on that target.

    Mattel released a Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie several years ago. It included 40 tattoo stickers of hearts, flowers, stars, rabbits, butterflies and so on. One tattoo was a heart with Ken’s name in it with the obligatory “arse antlers” extending off on either side of it, perfectly sized for a tramp stamp.

    There was also a Teen Pregnancy Barbie but that one was a hoax, not a real Barbie released by Mattel. The copy on the package read “Barbie can’t wait to have her baby! She’s so happy she didn’t listen to the grumpy old nurse at the clinic. She’s had so much fun shopping for cool baby stuff with her girlfriends. She found a really trendy diaper bag…”

    Dunno if you’re joking. Either way I just laughed out loud.

    A man went to the toy store & asked about Barbies for his daughter. The clerk said “We have several models: Work Out, Shopping, Beach, Disco, & Skater Barbie for $19.95 each and we have Divorced Barbie for $265.95.”

    The man said “What in the hell is a Divorced Barbie for $265.95?, That’s crazy! I must have misunderstood.”

    The clerk said “Sir…, Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken’s Car, Ken’s House, Ken’s Boat, Ken’s Furniture, Ken’s Computer, and one of Ken’s Friends.”

    Tragically awesome. Gotta remember that one.🙂

  86. I don’t understand why conservatives, and Christian conservatives in particular, don’t campaign against sperm banks.

    In general, conservatives are putting off marriage just like everyone else (if not more so), so they’re going to need the assistance of the baby-manufacturing industry when they hit 35+ and can’t get their seed to fall on fertile soil.

    Looks like conservatives got dragged along the delaying of childbirth syndrome abandoning their former practice of marrying and having children young.
