Alternative Barbies

Barbie says a lot about the world. I can't think of any other icon that is more widely distributed or so accepted as an image of femininity. Barbie is a defining force for both women and men, for the culture in general. We have chosen this image, voted for it with our dollars, promoted it unconsciously or consciously. When archeologists dig into the ruins of our world they will find the Venus DiMilo of the 20th century: Barbie.
But I think it's about time this icon diversified a little. What about all those aspects of our society that are not represented by Barbie? Let's open up the closet doors and let out the repressed real-world Barbies; Barbie's extended family of disowned and inbred rejects; politically correct Barbies that celebrate the ignored and disenfranchised.

Here is a sampling of the other Barbies, a behind the scenes look at the seamy underbelly of Barbie's world.
