I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
I NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE WHEN A FEMALE MEMBER OF THE IRISH PARLIAMENT COMPLAINED SHE WAS A BIT COLD A MALE MEMBER LAUGHED AND SAID HE’D “WARM HER UP” AND PULLED HER ONTO HIS LAP
WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL
IN THE PARLIAMENT CHAMBERS
WHILE THE OTHER MALE MEMBERS JUST STOOD AROUND WATCHING AND LAUGHING
IN THE MIDDLE OF A DEBATE ON THE REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS OF WOMEN*
IF YOU DON’T THINK IRELAND HAS A MAJOR SEXISM PROBLEM YOU’RE SERIOUSLY WRONG
