Nothing like the world of political correctness. In its desire to have something for everybody, the Mattel Corporation has decided to create a Barbie Doll wearing the symbol of the harsh Islamist Repression of women, the Burkha:

One of the world’s most famous children’s toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover – wearing a burkha.

Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby’s for Save The Children.

More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at the Salone dei Cinquecento, in Florence, Italy.

‘I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.

‘I know Barbie was something seen as bad before as an image for girls, but in actual fact the message with Barbie for women is you can be whatever you want to be.

To follow up on its Islamist theme, the scuttlebutt is Mattel is going to follow-up with other politically correct toys:

Killed By Her Father Because She wore Western Clothes Barbie

Suicide Bomber Barbie

And to continue along with the theme of Bad Lessons for little girls:

Trans-gender Barbie

Crack Whore Barbie, comes with her own crack pipe

And Murdered Someone During a Liquor Store Holdup Barbie (battery not included)

Congratulations to Mattel, for using Political Correctness to make their product such a great lesson for the youth of the world.
