Some time back I was at a VERY expensive car launch ...like VERY VERY expensive car launch, and there was a hugely wealthy, amazing looking woman there (tiny, perfect, gorgeous) who I spent a good while yakking with. Actually she did most of the talking and one of the things she said was that she'd been helping her wee girl get ready for the new school year and that they'd been covering her exercise books in Playboy pictures.
I didn't trust myself to say anything so I said nothing. But I thought to myself: 'bloodyhellwhatswrongwithmylittle****ingpony?!!!'
Well that physically perfect, hugely rich mum will likely adore this new kids game that's just come on the market.
It's an internet game, "Miss Bimbo", which has little girls moulding their own "bimbo" doll with diet pills and plastic surgery!
The Miss Bimbo website is aimed 9 - 16-year-olds and they are supposed to compete to create "the hottest, coolest, most famous bimbo ever".
(I doubt any 16-year-old will be playing this game. At 16, a girl in this head space will be out there LIVING it!..I think this site will appeal to little kids and adolescents.)
Anyway, players start out with their blonde bimbo cartoon character in underwear and then earn "bimbo dollars" by finding "a sugar daddy" or competing in beauty competitions to earn money for food, clothes and clubbing. Players are urged to "stop at nothing to become the reigning bimbo" and reminded that their doll needs to keep to an ideal "waif thin" weight of 57kg - even if that means spending bimbo dollars on diet pills.
Other "missions" for players include virtual plastic surgery for breast enlargement and there's even a virtual psychologist so the bimbos can "send your problems to take-a-hikesville".
The website already has more than 210,000 registered users with the creators insist the game is "harmless fun" and not a bad influence on young girls because it merely reflects real life.
a) Whose "real life" does this reflect? Certain tragic celebs and a few promo girls?
b) How low is it for adults to make money out of kids like this?
c) Exactly what values do we want to teach little girls? Do we really want to say that getting a sugar daddy is the goal????????
d) How did feminism go SO wrong?
